Default New TMobile Branded Case?

Please Login to Remove!

I had a small scratch on the screen and tried toothpaste. It did help, so I tried some more, this time with a little more pressure. I cleaned it off and saw I made a ton scratches all around it. They are very light, but noticeable scratches. The original scratch is also still there. Is there a way to get a new black tmobile branded front part? If not, what's the best product to remove scratches that will also restore the shine?

Why is that $50 while the batter cover is only $15? And it's a 3rd party case and unbranded too, so I wouldn't want it anyway.

The TMobile Logo is only on the bottom "chin plate." It's a separate piece. The rest of it only says "BlackBerry"

I don't know why it's $50. That's just how much it is.

Oh it is? But still, $50? I think I'll try some scratch removal product before I do that.

I'm confused about the toothpaste concept here...

Toothpaste is a fine abrasive, can be great for getting rid of scratches, only down fall is I have found that on clear plastic, you can see a lot of fine scratches from using it, almost leaving a foggy apperance.

Spend a few bucks and get a screen protector. It's well worth it.
