    Is there anything anyone out there has done for scratches and possibly even dents on the back aluminum of a first generation iPhone?

    My phone was immaculate for nearly a year, and I finally dropped it, giving it a couple scratches and an ugly dent on one of the corners.

    Anyone have any possible solutions?

    That is awesome, until I saw the price tag. I wish it was a lot cheaper, for that price, I might as well spend another $70 and get a 3G.

    Thanks a lot though.

    There are cheaper replacement solutions, but thats the first one I know of.
    As far as I know, there really is no wax/compound to put on the back.

    I just sent them an e-mail asking how much they could bang off the price if I provided the backplate. If I'm going to replace it I think I'd like a black one, which I found online for like $20. I can't see the FedEx shipping being more than like $50

    Edit: Nevermind, shut down... they only replace parts bought from them. Figured that though.

    If anyone else has any suggestions, speak up.
