So I just want all those people who are anti-screen protector people to know one thing. The screen does scratch. They all said that sand is the only mineral that can scratch it. That is a BIG FAT LIE! I purposely took a knife to my already defective iPhone. The Original iPhone will scratch when the knife is scraped against the glass with a bit of pressure. I did this about 7 month ago. I also did it to my 3G before sending it to Apple, same goes to that. My iPod touch got a scratch from being in my sweat pants pocket, and no, there is no sand, or anything in there, just the iPod. The Original iPod touch that I had I was able to scratch with a staple. I know doing this sounds extremely dumb, but people say the screen is scratch proof, and no, Apple didn't say that. The truth is, it is very scratch resistant, but more things besides sand will PERMANENTLY SCRATCH the screen. I'll admit, the naked screen is a joy to use. It's very smooth and like silk, but i use a screen protector, because I want a scratch less screen.
