    Running naked right now and want to see if anyone has scratched their phone yet. If so, how? Just in your pocket and got scratched or you dropped it did something more violent.

    iPhone 4 32GB owned one day and not a single scratch. Been pretty careful but phone is in my pocket a lot of the time.

    Been using the phone all day and was careful to not put anything else in my pocket with it.

    Just noticed a 1cm very fine scratch next to the front camera and another smaller one further up!! :mad:

    Definately needs a screen shield. I tried the invisible shield but fine marks on it interfered with the display.

    No scratches for me yet, i keep it in my pocket with nothing else in it. However, I did leave MOST of the original plastic apple had on it, i just cut out the earphone, front camera, home button and back camera/flash area, but the majority of it is still covered by the OEM plastic until I get my zagg shield in next week.

    Have invisible shield front + back, so scratchless.

    day 0 owner (23rd) and no scratches. It does seem to smudge a lot more than the 3G. I usually carry in my back left pocket, sometimes with change, sometimes not. Rarely in the front pocket, occasionally with keys.

    No scratches for me. I put in my pocket to come to work and it's been sitting out because I have been using it.

    No scratches. Covered front and back with Brando screen protectors when I got it yesterday.

    Always put in my front pocket with nothing else. When I'm sitting I've been taking it out and setting it on something soft. Or when I'm walking I simply hold it in my hand so it's not jostling around.

    for the first time ever... i'm going to try to use it naked. seems too beautiful to cover up.

    no scratches. but i am very VERY careful. but again, it is only 2 days old.

    Phone is naked and I've been using it normally like I did my previous iPhone and so far so good. I kind of don't like how the back lays flat against a surface when I place it down so I decided to order the wrapsol film for it. Yes, it is too pretty to cover up with a case.
