Default Dust in the display...

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new BlackBerry user of just one month.

I would be interested in hearing from any of you that have dust in the display of your BlackBerry.

What model (or models) do you have?

How long did it take before dust first appeared?

After the first sighting, how fast does it accumulate to an even more annoying level?

What can be done about it?

Is there a way to prevent it from the beginning?

Why does RIM not address this issue?

Thanks in advance for your reports and feedback.

If we don't have dust and have never had dust behind the screen, do you want to hear about that also? Just trying to make it fair...

Thank you for calling that to my attention.

Yes please indicate if yours is dust free & how long it's been since you got it.
