Does anyone know of a product to buff out scratches on the screen, of would it be worth just replacing the glass on the 3g? Thanks

    put a anti-glare screen protector on and it will hide 98% of the scratches

    My friends touch was scratched to Shiett and it made it look new.

    Its not worth buying a new glass front unless you've swapped them out before....

    For most people, then end up breaking something really important. It is more complicated than it might sound.

    invisible shield it man. that would be your best bet right now. it does a good job hiding screen scratches from what ive seen. i personally have no scratches because i had mine installed RIGHT out of the box but yeah. instead of the light reflecting off the scratches it reflects off of the smooth invisible shield coating.

    I'm sure you can use tooth paste, rubbing compound or some other very fine abrasive paste. I'm not sure if there is any type of coating on the glass though since that will definitely take a few microns off the surface

    just get any anti-glare one, The power support sold at all is good.
    Something about the anti glare hides more scratches, maybe the finish or the texture, but it doest the trick!
