The only thing I hate about my iPhone 3G is that stupid glossy back. I can't seem to keep my hands clean enough to use it without getting it all marked up with finger prints. It drives me slowly insane. I find myself constantly wiping it completely before putting it back in my hip holster. Please note, I tried cases and frankly, I can't stand the bulk they add... plus, if I use a case, I can't put it in my holster anymore and I have to take the case off to dock it. I'm not worried about scratches, but my 3G is starting to crack by the volume switch and ringer switch too. I'm not a big fan of this plastic other than it gives me better reception. So my question is... does the plastic bother you the same way it bothers me? I long for an iPhone 3G with a matte, 1-piece back that doesn't scratch. The glossy plastic was the worst idea. I guess when Apple was designing this, they didn't think about actually touching it. Note: I've had thoughts about trying to find a way to take the glossy coating off the iPhone by rubbing it or using a chemical, but I have no idea if either of those things will work and I don't want to risk ruining my iPhone completely.
