and the dust has begun to attack.







I am definitely calling AT&T and demanding the newest Curve they have that is not made in Mexico >_> (if that's possible) when my 30 days is almost over.

I may switch to the 8800... anyone care to discuss that with me?

Edit: Kidding. I like the Curve much more. T_T

If your phone is super "laggy" or something like a manufacture defect, you should be able to exchange it under the warranty.

I'm not sure if dust is covered under the warranty, so you might have to come up with something more creative.

Well, you can add my name to the list of unhappy campers with dust under their screen. I have only had my 8300 for about two weeks and there is enough dust to be noticeable with the screen on. This is unacceptable on a high end device this day and age. I haven't had a dust problem in a device since my first Pocket PC in the late 90's. I can't believe this is even an issue.

So has anyone come up with a way to clean it out? Does the whole device have to be taken apart? Anyone come up with a fix using some foam, tape, etc?

i got my replacement (made in mexico again :( although the seals looked like factory seals) and i put the BSE total body skin right away and its been not even a week and i think i see some specs under the screen. the skin makes it hard to notice, but i dont think it will protect against the dust coz even though it says "total body skin", it doesn't cover the entire body of the phone. i wish there is something like iskin for ipod for the curve...that skin is the best skin i ever found for my ipod. it covers EVERYTHING yet makes my ipod look like an ipod!

i agree this does suck on such a high end device!

my curve is made in hungary...

so i think the problems are in the design and not where it is actually made...

seems RIM havent leanrt anything with their previous berries...

dust is getting worse on mine to the point where its very noticable in all situations.....

it's most likely just going to come back... and maybe even more if the original seal is broken. you gotta embrace the dust. it's good for fighting our OCD... or at least for mine!!!

Two weeks and no dust so far. I sure hope I don't get a lot of it. I could probably put up with a little but if it gets to be to much I will be a little upset..

if u notice the right side of the casing isnt sealed at all. u can easily get the silver plastic to come up. whereas on the left side its almost impossible. hence dust in the screen from the right side.

i only used to be able to see the dust when the screen was off, but now the dust is so obvious i need to take some action its driving me crazy.

no dust so far after owning the curve for over a month....mine is very solid though....the rubber sides have no give at all and that is probably why.

Granted dust shouldn't be getting in our cases, but you can't tell when you are using the thing unless you are using the black screen of the berry outside in the sun to look at yourself. What's really the big deal?
I am on my 3rd Curve and all of them accumulated dust under the screen within a week (and I do not work on a farm, construction site or other dusty environment, I am your typical "white collar" road warrior...). I now have a large dust particle under the screen that is big enough to create a black dot when the screen is ON. Hence, I CAN see the dust when the device is on - truly annoying.

I had dusk in my second BB Curve. It was truly annoying and is definitely a build issue. I am on my third and the right side of the phone seems sealed. I hope a third time is a charm.

im on my third curve, and there is dust ALL OVER the screen. and i mean ALL over. its like dandruff got in through the side of it (i dunno, maybe it did? ) and its terrible to look at when the screen is off/as low as it goes....but when the screen is on i cannot tell its there...which im sure will change when enough dust gets in it to block the screen completely. i say screw it...ill wait awhile and see if it gets worse...if it does ill do the surgery myself and fix it i guess.

I gave up and went back to my 8800. After using the 8300 (3rd one) I went back to my 8800 and boy does it feel solid in comparison. Does not have a camera but I never used my 8300 camera after the first few days, anyway! The 8820 with WiFi is only a week or so away!

I got 3 spots of dust within the first 2 weeks.. its sooo annoying.. I hate it. I have never gotten dust in any of my previous phones. My phone after a month of use still has the 3 spots of dust but besides that is in flawless condition.

I have had my Curve for about 2 weeks now and I have a decent amount of dust on the right side of my screen.

It is really pissing me off.
