    I bought my iPhone a month ago and my iPhone has annoying dust in the black part near the home button. I've tried to get it out. Any suggestions on what I should do.

    A small, soft- and fine-bristled artist's brush perhaps?

    "Canned air" maybe? Just be careful you don't spray it with the cold liquid... :eek:

    if you can, you can try to fit the edge/corner of a yellow sticky (obviously not the glue part) and run it along the button to pull the gunk out.

    I'd use the windowshade cleaning attachment on a vacuum cleaner and carefully suck that dust outta there. That's what I do when I spot stray bits of dust in any iCrevices. Use the end of a scrap of paper to work out any troublesome gunk. I'd avoid blowing compressed air in there for fear of blowing things further into the phone, but that's just me.
