    I have an iPhone 4 that I bought on launch day, and it is absolutely perfect. I am careful where I put it, what is on my fingers when I touch it, and what's in my pocket. In the event that my phone gets a scratch, does anyone have scratch removal solutions that work with the iPhone 4? Thanks.

    screen protector if you're that paranoid.

    order some from dealextreme ( the $2 ones). much better value than the $30 screen guards or whatever they call the massively overpriced protectors these days.

    and no, they don't make your screen feel odd like some people say.

    Being in your pocket, it will eventually get scratched and there's nothing you'll be able to do about it :rolleyes:

    Don't want scratches? Get a good case and don't put it in your pocket.

    Some people like to take care of their stuff. Why spend money on something just to deface it?

    Also, post something constructive or don't bother.

    Power Support crystal shields. They make them for the front and back. Get a set for $15. You won't even know it's there. I got scratches on my last iPhone 4 and I'm super careful. Got it replaced (for other reasons), and put the shields on. Won't go without now.

    Screen shields are the ultimate scratch remover...if you get a scratch, peel it off and put a new one on.

    Agreed, grab the zagg shield, i have one on my ipad. Go check out their demonstration on their website for the ipad shield (same as the iphone shield) as to how protective it is. And it still feels good too!

    I have the zagg dry invisible shield, I love it, the phone will stay perfect. I didn't have anything on my 3gs for 8 months and now i've got 3 scratches on the screen. If I could go back into time, I would install the zagg onto the 3gs.

    NO


    you can't polish glass.. and anyone who brings up those giant machines used to polish windshield glass, you have to realize the size of those, they expensive, and they use tons of water = not relevant to what the OP wants

    +1 Note how only one or two people here actually addressed my question... I don't want a screen protector, but I don't want to scratch up the face of the phone I will be using for the next two years.

    I think the post you mention was constructive instead. When you are not maniacal about your gadget, no matter its value, you enjoy it more and have more time for more important things.
