    I have my iphone 4 since day one and I noticed yesterdays some spider web scratches on the back, I was shocked because I took a lot of care of my iphone anw I found this replacement on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Original-iPhone...er_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item3a5c683f50

    I have the following questions. It says on the product description that is is just the glass, so when I do replace it I still have my original product id and codes that are on the back bezel (FCC,IC). Also is it a genuine apple glass or it might be of different quality.

    I am thinking also to apply Best skins on the Back instead of replacing. Do you think the scratches will be lest visible with the skin?

    well since the actual replacement back is almost $60 I would guess this part is like all parts on eBay. a cheap replacement that may or may not work! on the 3gs the backs were getting cracks down by the charger port. Apple would replace them most of the time. I am guessing they will do this again with the 4. I would take it to them and then get a nice case to protect your phone.

    That piece is just the back glass itself. No camera ring and it does not have the 2 screw mounts.
