    I have quite a few on the little Apple logo on the back of my iPhone. Is there anyway to get them removed?

    No, your new iPhone 3G is plastic not metal like V1.0.

    Get used to it. :apple:

    Well my 1st Gen iPhone's metal logo is pretty badly scratched as well…

    Things wear out as we use them.

    Most of us learn to live with that.

    If you're the type that is bothered by scratches you should get a case. I guess its too late now, but for future upgrades.

    It doesn't bother me too much, its just that I hate looking at it. I guess its better than having an ugly case ruining the aesthetic of it. I've seen some iPod metal cleaners at Best Buy. Do those have any hope of cleaning these off?

    Have you considered a skin from Invisible Shield or a Best Skins Ever? If the scratches are very light, the application of a skin might actually cover the scratches up, and prevent new ones.

    I have a clear plastic backing on the back of my 1st gen, like what most people put on the front screen. It not only shows off the logo but keeps it from being scratched!!

    I actually have one from FullBodyFilms, but did a pretty horrible job and now have a bunch of air bubbles. I just get really irritated when the beauty of the product gets ruined by my obsession to keep it beautiful.
