    The 3G really should have been made with brushed metal trim (instead of polished chrome) and a matte, rubberized black back. Scratches and fingerprints are less likely to show with such a setup and it would also look a bit more professional/classy.

    Looks like people did the brushed mod with the original iPhone:

    Has anyone tried this with the 3G yet?

    Anyone aware of a third party who will do cosmetic work?

    I know if you do do it, you'll probably have to be more careful about the adjoining plastic.

    Why don't you cover the screen and the camera and run some fine grit sand paper of the black back and the silver trim.

    Let us know how it looks. :D

    Indeed, than give it it's final finish by placing it softly in the toilet than flush it 7 times. *Repeat steps if necessary.
