    Dust under screen

    So, theres dust under the glass(if thats the right word). Little specks, Im pretty sure their from the hole that can be seen by flipping the keyboard out, on the backside of the screen at the top. Picture shows what i'm talking about. You can see light coming right though it from the screen.

    Now i have no idea why having holes leading directly to and under the screen would help the phone at all.

    I guess what I should be asking is, Will Verizon give me a replacement for it?
    And is their a limit on the replacements you can get? Or is there any way for me to take it apart and remove the dust myself?


    I've already got the phone replaced once because the touch screen buttons had stopped working, and the camera shows up green in fluorescent lighting(still had the problem with my replacement).

    Motorola has seriously disappointed me.

    I've seen this issue posted before and Verizon did replace some of them, so it's worth a shot.

    I by no means recommend doing this, but this is what it takes to disassemble the Droid. It pains me to watch...



    Good luck!

    And of course, the screen is the last thing you get to. -.-

    I guess i'll try with Verizon.

    Disassembly seems a little to risky(pulling off bendable metal, unplugging ribbons.)

    Thanks for the quick response
