Default Scratch remover?

Hey guys,

well i've been waiting for a week now and my bodygaurdz hasnt come in the mail yet and guess what? i dropped my phone today on cement that has the pebbles in it so it just thrashed my phone. I can like 10 lil scratches in it on the front of all places. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on scratch removers?

Here are the two I was looking at on amazon.

Displex<--Bad idea read it's bad for touch screens

also, will body guards cover up the scratches or will it make it even more noticeable?

Bodyguarz does help cover up some minor scratches but it might still be visible. I'm using the shield right now and its not really that great. Makes the touch screen less sensitive by a reasonable amount.

If anyone gets this done, please post up the results. I have 2 scratches I'd love to get rid of!

none of them work for touch screens so it would be bad idea to use\
looks like they are only able to fix screens and shells of ipods and such
ice creme says it works for iphone 3g but only works for back if you read.

But Jstar you have actually used idrops on your touch screen and it fixed the scratches without damaging the screen or reducing the screen responsiveness?

ok so i ordered Ice Cream and it works pretty good. it does get minor scratches out. My scratches were pretty bad so it reduced them significantly but it took a lot of time and several coats. Of course as all scratch removers they are not miracle workers and it just takes patience to use them.

see the thing is i didnt apply the solution directly to the screen.

i went bought a cloth like the ones i use for my flatscreens and put some drops on that. wiped the screen a few times and SHAZAM..all gone.

so to u answer ur question..yes, ive used it on my TILT, ZUNE and FUZE.
Im telling u..it works every time! it was a good buy
