    Sadly, I'm an unlucky Apple customer. I bought my first Iphone 4 in September, but it has dents on the antenna band since I opened box. I sold it later bc I wanted a factory unlocked one. Now my second one have scratches on the antenna band too also since the first day...I don't know how is this possible by the my question is: what is the best way to cover the s.steel frame? I want something that looks like the original steel surface. I already find this three possibility:

    The first one is the Silver Metallic Spectra Warp 2.0 from Lucky Labs

    The secone one is the iPhone 4 Chromatics from Phantom Skinz in Sizzlin' Silver

    and the third one is the Phantom Skinz "MATTE Finish" film

    I also made some pics about the scratches:

    It's barely visible on the second one... o_O

    Thanks for your help, and sry for my english :D

    A regular old bumper would work.

    It's also proven to massively lessen the chance of the glass shattering when the phone is dropped, somehow.

    wow major case of OCD, you can't even see it unless you hold it at a special angle

    a matte skin is probably your best bet...they tend to have a frosty look that will hide scratches much better than a clear skin.

    Where are you located?

    I use the platinum series by, but I don't think they ship outside Australia. It seems like the same materials of those sold by theluckylabs.
    You can however find similar things on ebay, just include the keyword "3M"

    I live in Hungary :} Can I ask what 3M stands for? Is it some kind of manufacturing technology?

    Try rubbing at it hard with a pencil eraser. Believe it or not, I made a couple scuffs MUCH less noticeable after using one on them for a good minute. Now I can't even see them unless it's under certain lighting.

    just from personal experience you can remove some scratches from the metal atenna band with some compounds. i used meguiars scratch x from an auto parts store. worked wonders for me.
