    got a white phone and somehow it has already got some dirt or something down in the little tiny grove between the screen glass and the bezel. ive tried a toothbrush, microfiber cloth, and fingernail, NONE has worked. this is crazy this phone has gotten dirty this quick. never happend with the 4S. compressed air wont work either.. so whos got some ideas? or has anyone ran into this problem? its in the top right corner. idk if the phone came this way or if it has gotten dirty.

    The corner of a piece of normal paper? Should be thin enough the run along the groove.

    I've also used the protective film you remove from a screen protector.

    It is why I would never have a white iPhone:)

    Corner of a piece of paper has worked perfectly for me.

    tried the corner, its down too far in the grove, the grove is alot smaller then on the 4S but its showing on the 5 and my OCD is going bizerk.

    tried taking with 4S, its not showing, it looks just like a shadow, but its not a shadow. it looks almost exactly like the grim around a dirty home button on the white phone.
