alright so ive read a lot of threads about people complaining about how the chrome bezel around the iPhone gets real scratched up when left without a case. i had the same problem because i never used a case as i liked the naked look of the phone. I haven't really seen any great solutions besides buying some type of case to cover it up, or doing the whole "brushed metal mod". personally i like the look of the chrome along the outside and really don't feel comfortable taking sandpaper or steel wool to my $500 phone. i was in an auto parts store the other day and saw this stuff called "quixx scratch remover". it was like 13 bucks and looked pretty legit so i decided to try it out. HOLY s*** this stuff made my phone look brand new. it comes with like 2 bottles labeled steps 1 and 2 and you just use them in order (obviously) going up and down the chrome with a cloth. It basically just buffs out all the scratches. at first i really didn't notice anything and thought i had just wasted money, but after a couple applications the thing looked brand new. id imagine this stuff was available at any autoparts store. hope this helps everybody else whos as anal as i am when it comes to things like this. cheers.
