After months of keeping it in great shape..it saddens me that i received my first real iPhone scratch. Whats even worse is that its on the screen and I don't even know how I got it. Man this really sucks..

that sucks dude.
But how did you manage to get it on the screen. The screen seems almost unscratchable.

You sure it's a scratch? Do you have some omnicleaner or whatever it is from radtech? I wound up there looking for a headphone adapter, and they had some cleaning solution. It really does a better job than anything else I had tried up to that point to get off what I initially thought was some strong smudge. When nothing I tried worked and I could feel it faintly with my fingernail, I came to believe it was a scratch. It ended up not being a scratch when I went at it with this stuff, cause I got it off. It can be ordered with a grey cloth that is pretty similar to the black one that comes with the iPhone. But I found better results with the solution and my trusty 3m high performance cloth. (can a cloth really be high performance? O_o)

My iPhone has 3 small bubbles that have developed under the screen and now I recently noticed and area of discoloration...Not very impressed with my iPhone. Speakerphone is completely unusable, audio in general is sometimes audible, other times not...ect....Should've waited for iPhone 2.0...imho.

I keep mine in my front pocket. It has one very tiny scratch right in the middle of the screen. I think it came from a grain of sand in my pocket. Those tiny grains of sand are dangerous on cell phone displays.

Dropped mine 3 times onto the concrete onto its screen (all in the same day lol). Only got a few marks on the chrome bezel. I don't care about scratching up the sides, the screen is all that matters to me.
