    Is there a way i can get them out?
    Please dont tell me what products there are avalible, becacuse i already know that.
    Has any body sucessfully removed a scratch from their ipod touch?

    BTW, i take very good care of it, after im done using it, i put it back in the case and put it in my closet so nobody but me can use it.
    I have no idea where they come from, they just appear there. I never put it in my pocket before, i have clean hands. WTF?

    sorry dude, but the only way to fix it: shave off a thin thin layer of the rest of the screen so its as deep as the scratches. because, you cant fix them. a scratch on the touch screen, what it really is, is whatever scratched it, took part of the scren off. thats why in the scratched area it looks blurred, because part of the lense is gone.

    you probably got your stracthes from the case itself. the thing that can hurt apple screens the MOST (i mean the glass ones) are really really small types of dust like sand or so,maybe it somehow got in your case and voila..
    strange enough,i figured the best way to take care of glass is not take care at all,on both my touch and iphone i dont have a single scratch,i just have silicon case for back.

    I've done atleast 12 hours of googling(seriously, I did) and found nothing.
    However, a few people did say that novus polish is the best thing, but won't that mess up the touch screen?

    Someone else said displex took the scratches right out, but I went to their site and it said not to use on touch screens.

    Oh man, sorry to hear about those scratches on your screen... Furthermore, I'm assuming you did not apply any screen protector ya? Well, I guess you can check out those links and suggestions posted by the other forumers, hopefully you can get your solution!

    I am facing the same problem as you, but my scratches are FAR worse than your twelve scratches... I have numerous long and short ones all over my screen, made worse after I came back from Australia (probably scratched badly by lint or dust in my jeans pockets and it was cold over there as well!)... Luckily I have a protector that did it's job well and the multi-touch response is also doing fine...

    well! I just got a few screen protectors in today.
    When I put one on the scratches faded and lost their shine!
    The deep scratches look like hair, and the minor ones are hardly noticable.
    They don't bother me too much anymore.
