Article Dust in 3230 Solved

Ok, to hell with Nokia Service centres/ customer care centres or whatever they want to call themselves.
Here is a quick, cheap and simple cure for the dust problem.

Open and clean your phone which can be done in 2 minutes flat (especially if you've done it a hundred times in the last couple of months)

on the screen surround (the steel bit) attach thin strips of double sided tape (the cusioned type) (and do not remove the top layer of protectave tape (so that it will not stick to the original, unaffectave dust seal))
close your phone and you're done.

If your positioned the tape in the correct place, this will be the last time you opened your phone!!!!


BTW I'm not responsable for anyone breaking their phone so don't blame me if you do!!!.



I'm not one to post much in forums, so if you have any questions mail me on james_aquilina@hotmail.com

Thumbs up Update

Ok, i've had my phone rolling around in dust all day and there's some news, good and bad!!!

Good: The phone still works, NO DUST IN THE SCREEN
Bad: while throwing my phone around in mounds of dust for "testing" the keypad is caked in dust, and I have confirmed that the biggest problem is the joystick (as everyone's been saying), Now i'm going to spend the next couple of hours pulling my phone apart and cleaning it!!

You need to gently prise off the black plastic 'top' part (goes from above the camera, over the power button to the front speaker) using something SOFT like a fingernail or plastic. I used a screwdriver first time and knarled up the soft plastic ...

There are four torx screws to undo (two hidden at top under black plastic part). The phone should come apart easily then for you.

Don't try to force anything, or try to remove the front without undoing all four screws - you're better off with dust than a broken phone.
