Those without OCD need not apply :laugh2:

Just a quick update in regard to this problem. A lot of people are having a problem with the chrome border becoming scratched, regardless of whether or not they are using a case. A few people have been using a product called Never Dull, which is sold at places like Wal-Mart for a bout $4.00. Supposedly it works well for buffing out the scratches on the trim.

I haven't used it yet, so I can't leave my own testimonial as to whether this works well. I am a bit concerned about it scratching the screen of the phone, but others are saying it works without causing any damage to the iPhone.

Some others have used jewelry cleaning wipes, which also supposedly work well.

Just wanted to post a few remedies for those concerned about the chrome trim surrounding the iPhone. Use at your own risk!

I have used Never Dull, Brasso, and other metal polishing products on other types of shiny objects but I don't think it is something I would risk trying on my iPhone. These items would seem to be a bit to abrasive for my tastes.

I think something that might work better would be SoftScrub which is a kitchen clenser made for teflon coated pans. But even then i would be worried about it seeping in between the cracks.

Small little scratches are just something I have resigned myself to live with. Considering how bad my old phone got it is not someting I am to worried about.
