    I've just noticed a couple specks of dust under my new 3GS screen. They are only really visible in the sun with the screen turned off. I didnt even notice them for the first few days. Is this fairly common or should I try to exchange it? It seems from reading other forums that this is a fairly common issue and chances are good the replacement could be worse (plus I just noticed my iPod Touch screen has some as well). I just thought I would get the opinion of y'all...

    After a lot of use my 3G had a lot of dust under the screen, but I don't think it came that way. Haven't noticed any on my 3GS yet.

    You should see my brother's iPhone. He owns a pizza shop, so he works with a crap load of flower. In just 3 months, there's a LOT of white flower particles inside his screen.

    I would take it in. They'll likely take the screen off and clean out the dust for you.

    They'll likely just swap it out. There is a rubber gasket between the silver bezel and screen that you can barely see. It should be pretty difficult for dust to get under the screen unless it was there in the first place or the gasket is broken/worn out from use.
