    After a month or so of using my phone. Dust is really starting to build up dust and junk around it and in it. My phone is usually either in my hand or in my pocket, so in and out of the pocket will collect a lot of dust. The places i am focusing on are the metal grill on the speakers and the ear piece and inside the pin connector. Ive usually used a needle and just scrapped all the dust off and use a dust buster thingy. It works sorta. But i just wanted to know how do all of you clean your iphone!!

    I use compressed air cans, like you use inside your pc.
    With the straw thingy you can really get into the speaker openings and pin connector area.

    So far it's been working great with a microfiber cloth for the screen and back.

    haha, trust me man, toothbrush works so well, it can even clean the mute button area which is so hard to clean.

    Are you using the original caps that came with the phone or did you buy them somewhere?

    I use a tiny make-up brush, eyeglasses lens wipes and a microfiber cloth. Works great.

    you guys clean your phones?

    I just wipe the screen with my cotton tshirt from time to time to get the fingerprints off the screen protector.
