I love reading the stories of people who have their phones 'naked' for months at a time and never get a scratch, but I'm not that lucky. I have a gash (maybe even a small crack, not sure) on the back of my iPhone 4s and it's right on the Apple logo. Of course, it couldn't be off to the side where I can't notice it. I have AppleCare plus, but I don't want to waste a claim on a gash less than a 1/4" long. If it was cracked, paying the $29 fee would be ok, but at this point I'm not sure. I'm not really asking for sympathy here, it's just that I needed to tell somebody who might understand.
