    I've had the phone for about a week now, its been perfect.. But today I put it in my pocket and when I took it out... There were scratches on the top of the phone. Basically where it says BlackBerry .. Now the thing is you can only see the scratches when its under a light....
    What I would like to know is I just ordered bestskinever.. Do you think after I apply it you will still see the little scratches?

    Hard to say, the thin film may mask the scratches (pending if there deep scratches or soft surface type scratches). I have a soft case for mine and it helps tremendously with scratches.

    BSE should mask light scratches. alternatively, you could also buy a replacement...

    Don't you still have the stock skin that the storm came with or did you already take it off?

    I just buffed out the screen on my Curve, this past week!

    I used something called Flitz, it a rubbing compound, but hard to find. Brass-O would probably work too!

    I use cotton balls and Q-tips to apply and buff the screen. It works slicker than snot!

    How hard do you think it is to install this?

    I think any of the shinny or glossy surfaces on the Storm will eventually get "swirl" marks on them. Just a matter of time

    My BSE hid a couple of light scratches, I was very happy.

    not too hard as long as you have the right tool. you need something like the tool below (or any thin, rigid plastic edge) to pry off the current cover - it's held on with a few small clips and double sided tape.
