    Not possible. It's not a surface that can be polished. It's a treated surface that would look worse if you tried to fool with it. Use a bumper or case to solve the problem.

    It's not a phone that's made to be carried naked by someone that cares about the looks. :cool:

    Wow!! talk about irony!! If you case about the looks, you better use a case to keep it from getting scratched. But, If you use a case you will never see the looks that you care so much about.!!!! its a catch 22

    Dude, after owning several iPods in the past and all four iPhone, I can tell you.....NEVER try to repair a scratch, you will end up making it even worse.

    What up, 212?!
    As a couple of people have said, it's not really easy (if at all possible!) to repair scratches and the best way to avoid them is to use a case.

    I got a ton of scuffs on the metal band from my :apple: bumper case and too found out anything I tried to do to make them go away, only made them worse. Put on an antenna wrap and forgot about them. Now if only I could do that to the scratch on the screen! :(
