    Anyone notice that the edges of the phone both lower edge ad glass seem prone to catching dirt? I don't recall my 4 doing this.

    I found the 4/4S design was more prone to dust and dirt accumulating along the band. There's a much smaller area on the 5 and I haven't seen any dirt in it yet.

    Yes it does. It's black colored and is found around the edge of your front glass.

    I too have dirt in between here and it is annoying.

    Please elaborate. From carrying it in a pocket or other?

    Yup, I've got dirt there too. Can't do anything about it. The more I try, the harder I push it in. lol.

    I'd expect this to happen in a white iPhone, iPad, iPod (have seen trapped dirt on all of them) but I can't imagine it happening with black since it's black...

    Try a can of air like you use to clean your computer keyboard and electronics. This has worked on every phone I have used. Try it at an angle first. Your finger or cloth will just grind it in more. :)
