Scotch tape really isn't necessary to clean the screen. A microfiber cloth works wonder.

well to try to fix it i decided to use the scotch tape all around the bezel and the majority of the paint was coming off and it was black underneath so it probably work out

yea its just a painted coating...not actual chrome. I dented my first 8900 accidentally and the indention was black...thank goodnees the speaker went out and they sent me a replacement..still I dont like the black bezel, but the all white on colorware looks amazing.

This has happened to at least one other person posted on another forum (I started a thread recently with a pic of his Zagg with the paint stuck on it). That dude just removed all the chrome too and said he liked it way better black.
