    How many if any at all have gotten dust under the screen of their iPhone 4/4S from carrying it in your pocket? It seems like I'm always checking my iPhone 4 for dust.

    I know that the display and screen is fused together but has anyone ever had any problem with this?

    I carry mine daily, have had it for six months, and have no dust.

    I usually just let it levitate above my shoulder to keep it free from harm :p

    Seriously though, I always keep it in my pocket. I think about dust from time to time, but a little puff of my own breath is enough to clear things out. Usually I don't get much more.

    I carry mine in my pocket every day. No dust under my screen, either.

    Correct.

    Previous models may eventually get dust under the LCD, but not the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.

    Front left pocket! If I wear jeans, I rock it without a case. If I'm wearing shorts I'll slip it in a case and go.

    Also I have one tiny speck of dust under my screen.. it's weird haha but I'm not too bothered by it.

    Hehe, I concur. The front right pocket, that's what it is. Of course, I always make sure it is coin-free, or lighter-free (I'm a smoker) beforehand. No dust either.

    Front left pocket for me. I use a giottos air blower (for my camera) to blow dust out of crevices from time to time.

    As above it's impossible unless it's defective or had a dodgy repair done

    I always have it in my pocket, and the only place where dust collects is in between the case and the back of the phone, which you can only see when you take the case off.

    Unless your phone is defective you won't get dust.

    I have an iPhone 4 original from launch day always in a pocket or bag, zero dust.

    My original iPhone 4S had a speck of dust out of the box and Apple replaced it, the replacement has never had any dust.

    My iPhone 3G on the other had, chock full of dust now.

    As everybody else has said, you shouldn't be getting any dust under the display with the 4 and 4S. The older devices, on the other hand, tons.

    Jeans pocket with mine, no dust with my original or my first warranty replacement.

    Good to hear people. I don't have any dust under mine either. I was just curious cause I have heard of a few people getting dust under their screen but like some of you have said it was a defect with the device. It's good to know that Apple would replace it.

    My fiancé has had the 3GS for 17 months and has dust under the screen. I wonder if Apple would replace it? Not that it's a big deal but just curious?

    I keep mine on a leash, the thought of putting it in my pocket to get dusty makes me angry... :rolleyes:

    Ever heard of a cloth OP?

    Front left pocket, usually in one of several cases, all of the time (except when I'm sleeping). I have never had any dust issues.
