    Ok I know this is a really stupid question but though I'd ask anyway, I got a replacement phone a few days ago because my other one had a a yellow tint all over which annoyed me to no end, this one they sent me is flawless, screen is perfect and even and clear white no dings or scratces, I put the phone with no case on it in my purse and it accidetly got a few scratches on the back, now I know that u can't fix a scratch but I was thinking of just getting a gold metallic cover up pen just to minimize it, I don't want to do a swap because I don't want to risk giving up a perfect screen to maybe get a really bad one, what do u think? Have any of u tried a touch up of any kind to hide scratces?

    I have already a case on and I always put one on when I get new iPhone and the first time I put it my purse I end up with a scratch lol, so do u think a tough up pen is useless?

    Way back when, during scuffgate for the iPhone 5, someone suggested the Birchwood Super Black paint pen. This is a special type of pen that uses paint, not ink and it's used for scratches on gun metal (ie., guns).

    I can't find anything by this company that's in gold, but Krylon apparently makes a similar type pen.

    Paint. Not ink. ;)

    I would nix the touch up pen idea to be honest. Is your case see through that you can see the scratches? You can always get a solid color case (if you don't already have one).

    The case I have on now doesn't show the scratches I think it's just the fact I know they are there lol

    I think a few scratches are nothing to stress over compared to more annoying problems another phone could have. What would be your reason for Apple to give you another swap? You took your pristine replacement and chucked it into your purse like a crazy person.

    Well, maybe you should re-read your own gigantic run-on sentence. To answer your second question, yes you should absolutely draw on your phone with a touch up pen.
