    I use a toothpick to lightly scrape off the dust and use a moist tissue to collect dust.

    Try a sewing needle or safety pin to really get into the corners. That will probably do it.

    But if those really don't work, try a tiny TINY drop of rubbing alcohol and then use the needle again to scrape in there. Hold the phone straight up the whole time so nothing drips into the speaker.

    I'm serious about the smallness of this drop. Use a toothpick to apply one raindrop's worth of alcohol.

    use a paper towel and twist a small portion of it and use that.

    This. I've been using this since my 2G to clean the nooks and crannies of my iPhones. It works well if you know how to aim it appropriately to get the dirt out. This works especially well in the dock connector.
