    Default So apparently the scratch resistant screen doesn't work too well..

    I don't see how all of these people are taking keys and knifes to their iphones and haven't got any scratches at all. I have had my iphone for maybe 2 weeks, and even being very careful with it, there are already 2 very small scratches. You can't see them unless under bright light and at the right angle, but still. I'm sooo pissed now. I know I should stop worrying, because it's just a phone, and thats going to happen to any phone, but ugh, I paid $600 for mine since it was 1.1.1 and I got it on ebay. (only the 4 gig version too)

    Any way I can remove these scratches? >_< Also does anyone have any screen protector reccomendations, so it doesn't get any worse?

    EDIT: pics of the scratches:

    Leave it. You will do more damage taking them off.

    It's glass, there is no simple way.

    The InvisibleShield is nice, lifetime warranty so if it does scratch the cover they will replace it for free.

    and you can't be as careful as you claim. The screen is made of glass. As we all learned in grade-school: glass is a lot easier to just brake than it is to scratch. Its dang near impossible to scratch glass. The laws of physics must really just hate you or something......

    Yes I have been very careful. Unless putting the iphone in your jeans pocket somehow scratches it.

    dude, it could have been from the jeans rubbing against your iphone idk what the psps was made of (i assume glass lol) not sure if it was meant to be resistant or not but i had a lot of deeep scratches and i was also careful with it.
