    How do I get it out? Vacuum? A moistened cotton swab?

    Your thoughts.

    Sounds like that will just push it in.

    +1 to the canned air, probably the best way, but a qtip and some rubbing alcohol (not dripping just moistened) will work.

    This is right up there with air on the inside of my droid. Do I need to change it with fresh air?

    Mine does too...the first day I got my Droid I had put it in my pocket, and I guess from where I had a pack of cigarettes in there earlier that day, there was little pieces of tobacco down in there and there's been a piece stuck in the earpiece still to this day. That was in November! I never could get it out but the air-duster sounds like a great idea... :)

    I'm liking the toothbrush idea... but I think i'll use a new one.

    It'll be my Droidbrush.

    But the old ones have so much flavor!

    I use compressed air on mine, doesn't leave it as clean as I'd like, but I've learned to leave well enough alone.

    This has been bugging me for awhile now also. Is there an accessory I can buy that will do this for me? Or maybe I can get a pompous BMW fan to waste his breath on it?

    Honda for the win.
