Dust behind outside display on LG AX275 cell phone

Hoping someone can assist me in figuring out how to get the dust out from behind an LG AX275 outside display.

Hubby uses this phone for work and carries it in his pocket. Over time it has managed to accumulate dust behind the screen. It's getting very difficult to even see the display anymore due to the dust build-up!

Does anyone know if the outer cover could be removed to clean out all that dust? Or is there another way to get it out? I don't want to try removing it if it will break in the process.

Thanks!

Isn't it a snap-on cover that pries off?

The phone is has the original casing, so I'm not sure if it will pry off without breaking? I know they make additional face plate covers/backs but we have never used those.

Not sure where to even look to find a spot to try and start prying it from?

If he didn't have to take it to work with him daily, I'd try to bring it to our local cell phone store to have them check it out.

Any suggestions on how I might go about prying off the cover (if it could be done?)

Thanks!

I wouldn't try to pry off the top of the phone. How long has he had this phone? If it's part of an expired contract with Verizon (Alltel?) they'll give him a new one for free if he re-ups.
