    How are you getting rid of dust getting trapped in the small mic hole just below the windows and search buttons on the front of the device?

    Pick up some compressed air (can) (don't use anything that might have oil in it, in other words compressed air tool hoses) and give it a couple of bursts. That should clear it.

    It's certainly possible to do that without damaging the microphone, however it's obviously much more likely that something may get scratched/broken/punctured. Does the dust make a difference during calls or is it purely cosmetic?

    If anything use a cotton swap. Using a pin, paperclip, sim ejector too will likely damage or perforate the MIC. That being said, I would say to do this:
