    Now that people have had the iPhone 4's for a little while let's get a scratch report from people with no cases or bumpers. How bad is the back of ur iPhone. Not from drops or crazy objects, just from everyday pocket use.

    I have a light case on the back of mine...altho I noticed a small scratch on the screen today!!! Made me sick. I had an iPhone3g before this one and never, ever got any scratches...Kind of weird since they claim it to be better and tougher. I'm extremely careful with it, never just toss it into my purse or anything, so have no idea how I got the scratch!!!

    I'm also curious to hear about what users are experiencing. The new iPod Touch is looking like it might be similar to the iPhone 4 and since I might get the new Touch I'm very curious to see how scratch resistant the iPhone is.

    I don't like using screen protectors on my Touch because they add too much friction when swiping and dragging items. That's one of the reason why I really like the Apple notebook unibody glass trackpads. They are very smooth for swiping and dragging. It's the same with my Touch without screen protection.

    I'm the same with my iPhone, I'm not rough with it. And I put it in my pocket with nothing else, except maybe a pack of gum, never keys or other metallics.

    I'm very careful, too! Almost ridiculous about it, and I still got the teeny scratch! Who knows maybe it was a piece of something on there when I went to wipe it off and it scratched it...I prefer not to have a protective screen cover on it, either, think they look awful with all the little bubbles! Think that would drive me crazy, and let me tell you...it's a short trip! LOL

    I got my iPhone 4 today, and put a screen protector on it. Somehow I got it perfect. It's actually straight and no bubbles or lint under it.

    Didn't have screen protectors for the 1st week and I didn't get any scratches with normal use. I was pretty careful, but that's just my nature, case/screen protectors or not.

    I don't have any scratches, and I am not using any type of case for it either. I do plan on purchasing a bumper though at some point.

    I picked up a cheap case from Bestbuy until Incase comes out with their case. I'll be babying my phone until it comes.

    I'm not a case guy
    I would say this one scratches more easily then the previous 2 iphones. 1 week and I have some real scratches on the front. Back looks fine.
