Question Remove scratch from screen

Please Login to Remove!

I got a scratch in my 8830 worldphone screen yesterday. Does anyone know how to remove or reduce it?

The phone is brand new and it drives me crazy!

I've used this method with a decent amount of success on my BlackBerry devices:
Restore your iPod nano to new condition with a $4 can of Brasso | Dailey News

AND, immediately purchase screen protectors:
--ShieldZone or ScreenPatronus are both good products.

May want to research Plexus. It is a spray that is used in the aviation and motorcycle industry on clear plastics to protect it and help out with those finer scratches. I used it on my 8800 and even though I am insanely careful with my phones, I think it helped quite a bit.

The screen protectors are very good at what they do but I personally just prefer a tad less protection.

Depending how deep the scratch is, I use whiting toothpaste on fine scratches on both my iPod and BB and it worked fine. Just use it like rubbing compound.
