    Hey guys just wondering if any of you did this....i kept the rear part of the plastic film that came with the 3Gs on the phone and just put it in a case...seems like a decent temporary solution for protecting the plastic from getting scratches.

    The Power Support Crystal film is compatible with the 3G S, just FYI:

    I did exactly that. I just put it on the inside back of my contour hard case. I'm hoping that will prevent the plastic back from scratching the back and the apple logo like it did to my 3G

    After some of the threads I have read on here today I fully expected the OP to ask if the 3GS came with film for the camera. :D

    My suggestion is to never unwrap the box, then the iPhone will always be pristine. You could store it in a fire safe, just to be "safe".

    well

    you could get a rubber skin unless your intent on making sure everyone knows its an iphone, in that case you can do what i did put the little apple sticker logo that came with the phone on the back of the rubber skin.

    Thats a pretty good idea for the hard case. Tell us if it keeps the scratches off (which it should I guess).

    The rubber skins are the worst for scratches actually. The reason is this: They get small bits of dust/sand/other abrasive material between the rubber and the device which is ok at first but over time and through temperature changes and motion the rubber stretches and it effectively becomes sand paper up against the device.

    So far the only cases I've used that do not scratch the device are the ones lined with something like suede or roughly textured leather (so it's almost suede but ... not.)

    Of course if you really want to avoid scratches on the whole surface, those entire device covers from Zagg or similar companies seem to be the very best bet.
