My first Lumia 920 accumulated more and more dust in the front camera, and after about 30 days, the front proximity sensor stopped working. This meant that the screen always turned black as soon as I would make a phone call preventing me from using the other phone features or even hanging up! Swapped it out for another 920 as was my only option, and guess what, after 5 days there is already dust accumulating in the front camera housing, AGAIN... The worst part, I'm past my 14 days to swap it for a different phone, and ATT is giving me **** just trying to get another replacement... TERRIBLE! Plus the WP8 ecosystem sucks, but I knew that going into this.

Is it coming in from the headphone jack or ear speaker slot?
I'm seeing it here and there after carrying the 920 in my pocket for a while but as many have pointed out, a burst of compressed air does the trick. I can't get too upset because it clears out quickly and I rarely use my front facing camera.
Still... you have to wonder where the dust ends up.George Ponder

I believe the dust is coming from the speaker, dust gets collected there (since its black) you can see all the particles, I've made the mistake to blow on it my guess is that you can put a perimeter cover similar to the one used for the iphone 4 proximity sensor fix (Proximity Sensor Cover for iPhone 4) obviously adjusted in size, so that it will put more pressure around the speaker and not allow any particles into the proximity sensor or the camera. Of course I dont know what kind of issues you'll have on the audio side, maybe its better to do this on the camera itself, I haven't taken the phone apart so I dont know the measurements.
