Thread: iPhone 4 scratched... :-(

    Default iPhone 4 scratched... :-(
    Would a spectacle (eye glass) repair kit fix the hairline scratch on the front screen?

    hardened glass may not be as easy to buff out a scratch
    60% of the time, it works every time.

    Is it possible to buff out scratches on a 3G screen? I have quite a few and im getting a new case and chrome bezel for it, it's kinda hard not to get fake stuff so I don't really wanna go for a new screen
    If it is possible what's the best "product" to use??

    I would also like to hear if this works. My iPhone 4 has a slight scratch that I can only see in bright light at the right angle. Just knowing it's there bugs the heck out of me!!!

    I wouldn't use an eye glass repair kit to buff out scratches on an iPhone 4. 3gs's and 4's have a special coating on the screens to help prevent scratches. Anything you use to buff out scratches will remove that coating and leave the phone more susceptible to even more scratching.
