    I get that quite a bit too, just comes from being in your pocket. Not much you can do if thats where you keep it. I take mine apart, I believe a T6 will get thouse screws out, then the only tricky/risky part is getting the LCD off the housing to clean the screen.
    You need to remove the Voice record button from the case(use an exact-o knife). Then remove the 2 ribbons coming from the keypad. The screen should then hinge open allowing you to clean off all the dust.

    You could, and i might to this, put some sort or seal around the window so that dust CANT get in there... I havent done this yet, just a thought...

    There really isnt a whole lot to mess up except for the voice record button. Theres nothing you can break by opening this thing up so the phone will still work when you re-assemble it. It a bit of work though, to get some dust off.

    I thought it was from pocket use as well, but low and behold my friend is anal and he uses a leather case and NEVER had it in his pocket.

    I also was told by him that cingular said it was black razr only...now i hear silver too. that sucks

    I keep my black one in my pocket and i have had mine for a few months now and im all good.

    Dust is a common problem on all cell phones, eventually some will get in the screens, some more than others, more and more i've been reading about dust problems on the Razr's screen, i have two black ones and one silver and no dust problems here so far....

    While it is a common problem with cell phones, it's an excessive problem with the BLACK V3 Cingular RAZR's and Cingular Warranty Exchange (XBM) is processing exchanges for this now. All other terms of warranty still apply, ie Physical or Liquid damage still voids the warranty regardless of the issue.
