    So I have had my Z10 for roughly a week now, and I have noticed it attracts a lot of dust. I don't like to use a case, I bought the device because I like the way it looks, don't want to cover it up. The biggest problem is that is collects in the sides of the bezel. Is there any thing I can do to clean it out or prevent this? Not trying to complain, just looking for suggestions. Thanks all.

    I roll with a naked Z10 as well, sure there's some dust but not more so than other phones or anything else I leave sitting out on the table

    The Z10 collects less dust then my old iPhone 4.

    You could say the Z10 is a dust deflector

    Maybe you are just one of those static prone people. You know, the one that gets a shock when touching a car.

    All phones are dust collectors. Especially if its a darker color. Just like a car, a black car is more noticeable when it is dirty.

    In no way am I meaning to sound rude but maybe it's the location being too dusty? I leave mine on my side table over night and don't have any issue with dust at all.

    Can of compressed air might help. Make sure to blow at an angle so you don't blow the dust in more.

    I was in a particularly dusty environment for a couple if days. This was the only time I picked up dust in the crevices. I used the air can that I us to clean keyboards. Worked great. Just don't hold it too close and always at an angle so you're blowing the dust away, not deeper.

    Or anything metallic. It was so bad last year being so dry I got a shock through leather gloves that left a red dot on the end of my finger, and I have to remember to discharge/ground myself before touching electronics.

    However, my Bold is and was dust-free without a case in the 22 months I've had it. Next month I'll find out how the Z10 will fare.

    Maybe the OP isn't using it enough if it is collecting dust. ;-)

    When it quits working. (which may be sooner than later since its a berry) you can use it to clean dust instead of paper weight... :-

    Let's not trash op guys. I see where he could be coming from. If it's in the screen housing around the bezel try the end of a toothpick if you really want to

    Any black color device will appear to attract more dust than a device that isn't black.

    Thank you, people making me feel like an ***** because I like my phone to remain clean. I am going to try all of the suggestions though. I find the most dust gets collected in my pockets, so maybe it'd time for a pouch.

    My BlackBerry Z10 in the OtterBox Defender case still gets dust under the built-in screen protector. But I dare not use this engineering marvel without a case.

    Ignore the ID10Ts who've responded negatively to your legitimate concern.
