    So i just moved to AZ from chicago and since i have been here i have managed to scratch the crap outta the back of my iphone.. I dont know how, I dont spin it around or slide it on tables. The front screen is perfect, its just the back... I was wondering if other peoples are pretty scratched up on the back.
    On the :apple: logo seems to be the worst

    This is expensive, but if you want you can buy a replacement casing here.

    Then slap an invisible shield on the back or get a case.

    That's the problem with Apple's choice to go plastic. It scratches like mad. I was so proud of Apple for creating a virtually scratch-proof device with the original (save for the chrome bezel) but with the 3G they took a ginormous step backwards in that respect.

    It doesnt bother me enuff to replace the case but ive had my iPhone for a while and just recently it seems to be taking a lot of scratches. Almost like some "protective coat" has worn off or something..

    its no big deal, something i can live with... After all it is just a phone.

    I'd still suggest perhaps an invisible shield. It may help mask the scratches that are there now and also prevent future scratches.

    Wow - they charge an extra $30 for the back to say 16GB instead of 8GB. How pathetic...

    Why can't we purchase PRODUCT(RED) back casings? Seems like an opportunity for a third-party.

    iStyles or Gelaskins will return your iPhone to its shiny beginnings. I had one since I purchased it and there isn't a single blemish underneath.
