    I love my Pre! Maybe too much, but I've taken up a practice of weekly maintenance of cleaning my Pre like a soldier clean cleans his/her weapon. I do this once or twice a week.

    First I shut down the phone and remove the back and take out the battery.

    Then I use an old toothbrush of mine with double thin fibers to remove dust and dirt around the whole back, speaker, keyboard, front speaker and all areas where dust can accumulate blowing it all out as I go.

    I then take a dust free cleaning cloth and clean off the camera lens the screen and all around the edges. I clean out the back and polish the mirror.
    I put the battery back in and replace the back cover.

    When I'm done my phone looks like new again. I love my Pre!
    And I believe this will keep your phone in tip top condition.

    Ok....Carry on.

    You got problems! Actually I do about the same every couple weeks. Seeing dust around the keyboard drives me nuts. I like to use the little cleaning cloths for safety glasses in our office first aid kit. Leaves everything nice and shiny! The only part I haven't cleaned yet is some little things that got under the camera lens.

    He may just have dusty pockets And really, you're supposed to clean your entire house once a week so why not personal electronics?


    OP, try turning your pockets inside out when you wash them. You may be able to deduce your needed Pre cleaning.
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    I don't have OCD or anything but after seven months my phone still looks and operates like new. Works for me. Am I sick?

    I have a box full of those alcohol free anti-static wipes for computer monitors, I use them on my Pre occasionally to wipe it up.

    Maybe on a boring sunday,
    other than that I would never have time.
    Even on a sunday I have a tight schedule.
