    You're probably not going to be able to fix it. Time to buy a new phone.

    Depending on whether it is latex or oil based paint, you should soak it in water or paint thinner.

    Fix it?
    I'd bring it to Apple and have them replace the phone for $200.

    I dont understand how I hear all these stories of iPhone cruelty. Like dropped in toilet or "how can I break my iPhone to get a new one". Be a lesson learned that the phone is made of glass, so DO NOT do handy work while the phone is in your possession, put it down for a moment. :confused:
