    i have what looks like dirt on the top right corner of my phone. its down in the little gap.. ive tried compressed air and no luck, edge of card and no luck. its small but it sticks out like a sore thumb on a white phone.. had the problem on my iphone 5 and its on the same exact spot on my iphone 5s. UGH!

    picture would be good... ;)

    I remember in my 4S I had some dust in the border area from factory, I just used a fingernail to clean it.

    i ended up using some hydrogen peroxide and then some oxyclean and it appears to have resolved my OCD temporarily. guess ill clean the phone every 2 weeks with this method.

    Answer: exchange your effeminate phone for a space grey.

    14 days? Dang, you got dirt in that area already?

    I have a white iphone 5 for over a year now, and I don't even have any dirt where you mentioned. That is 1 year's use with no dirt.:p

    Have you tried using the edge of a razor blade? Obviously be VERY careful not to cut yourself or damage your phone... Maybe an exacto knife or something like that?

    Look more closely: it's the blue screen of death. Truth.

    My 5 is white, and I am glad I switched to space gray for my 5s. I have also had things stuck in that gap, and I have found that the edge of a piece of paper, like maybe printer paper, can get in there nicely and clean it out.
