Is a fix coming for the Nokia Lumia 920's dust problem?
using a sheath that will be fitted around the front-facing camera and the proximity sensor. This way, the dust is kept away from the sensitive sensors. If the tipster's information is correct, while the sheath will appear on newer units out of the box, those who already own the phone will be able to run over to their local Nokia repair service and have the sheath applied.
There is no word on when Nokia will start offering the sheath, but keep your eyes right here. As soon as we know, you'll know.

I have a better solution - avoid dragging your Lumia 920 through the dirt, and wash your hands at least three times per day. Problem solved!

I had the same problem but I noticed that I kept my phone in my pocket a lot. If you pick the lint out of you pocket or area you have it in the problem is gone. Dirt wise I use computer wipes on my Lumia as well as my iPhone and they stay clean.

Why would you put your $800 phone anywhere near dirt in the 1st place

Why is that topics that relate specially to WP are always full of worthless Android loving dogs who mutter pointless stupid comments?
