    Anyone else have dust in their speakers and if so, how are you getting rid of it? I was thinking just a little air-in-a-can would do the trick.

    I'd be too afraid the air would push the dirt in more. What about some type of vacuum effect?

    What I'm concerned about is the hole for the headphones.

    Get some Fun Tak (blue stuff) from an art supply store. Take a small wad of it the size of a piece of bubble gum, and press it into the speaker holes then slowly peel it out. Do it a few times and voilà, no more dust. You could also probably use silly putty.

    Air can is too strong. It might damage your tiny speaker and mic. I'm using a static dust cleaner (the one use for DSLR camera) and rocket blower. It works really good for cleaning speaker, mic, dock port, headphone hole, etc.

    Thanks, I might just leave it, makes me nervous to do anything to this phone.
