How do I clean the dust from under my RAZR phone's screen?
Question: I took my black Motorola RAZR phone with me to the beach a while ago, and somehow the wind blew a bunch of sand underneath the screen. Is there a way to remove the screen cover so I can clean out the dust?
Answer: Cleaning the dust from under your Motorola Razr cell phone screen can be done in less than 5 minutes by prying the screen cover off and wiping out the dust.
Using a small pocket knife blade or some other thin edged tool, start at one of the bottom sides, near the screen cover's hinge, and carefully pry off the cover, loosening as you go. The glue that holds the screen cover on is a tacky substance and will re-stick after you've cleaned the screen. Slowly and carefully slide the knife along the edge of the flexible plastic, and lift it up as it pulls free of the adhesive.
You can leave the bottom of the screen attached while you wipe with a very soft cleaning cloth or compressed air. Remove the dust off of the screen and then simply press the screen cover back down and run your thumbs around the edges to reseal it.
That's all it takes, and you don't need to buy any fancy tools.
You can also protect your RAZR with a set of Motorola RAZR screen protectors. These screen guards are made of micro thin polymers that will protect your screen from scratches and keep it looking new. Each screen protector sheet lasts about 5 to 6 months.
As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth... well, you know.
