    I just noticed the other day that i saw some dust on my screen and when i went to clean it off i noticed that it was on the inside of the screen! I wounder if this is caused by the little space between the black front and the metal back where dust can enter. Apple should of seriously dealt with that before shipping them. So i'm also trying to think of a way to get the dust out but i don't have any ideas other then taking it apart, which probably wouldn't be successful. Any ideas? Has this happened to anyone else?

    Its really annoying to not be able to clean your screen of dust.

    i have about 25 pieces of dust in mine, and, if there is enough, this is covered by your 1 year apple warranty.

    I have also 2-3 pieces of Dust in the Inside on my ipod.
    I thought, its airproof locked? (wtf my english)
    How can dust come into the inside of the screen?
    i clean my iPod very often and use a case.

    I never had dust inside my screen.
    I use a DecalGirls skin and I think it also avoids dust to get into the screen.

    My friend had dust in his screen, he exchanged it for a new one at apple. They also gave him a crappy screen protector with it

    I've never had dust inside any of my iPods except for my 2g nano which I exchanged and got another.

    actually, you might want another, because if you wait for a while you could get a 3rd gen possibly, if that is all the apple store has. dont count on it, but you never know
