    As per the title, I have at least 20 small scratches (0.5-1cm long) on my iPod's screen. I have no idea how they got there as I keep my iPod in my pocket with my wallet and nothing else. My pocket is CLEAN. My the back of my iPod touches the wallet. What else could cause these scratches? Dropping my iPod has never done anything to the screen and it's never been scratched by something you'd think could scratch it, i.e. keys.

    I would think that you brushed up against something without realizing it. Any tears or scuffs in the material of your pocket? would be hard to scratch up your ipod from the outside without any evidence of it going through the material. I cant think of anything else if your wallet wasnt touching your ipod's screen.

    Nope. Just checked. Alot of the scratches seem to have happened today. They're all very shallow apart from the biggest three, which happen to be in the exact middle of the screen

    That sucks =/ Very weird too.. I would suggest in the future getting a screen protector for it. I use zagg's InvisibleSHIELD and it works great.

    I got some Mirror Screen Protector from a Flea Market, and it works great.

    But it must have hit something.
    Just keep the back facing outward, so even if you do brush it against something, the screen doesn't get messed up..

    I used to do it that way but then you can't use pockettouch. I keep it facing in when I wear my jeans though. Aargh! This pisses me off.

    Why do you drop your iPod? As you said:
    Some scratches may occur when you drop it but sometimes you can't see them and they may become bigger when the screen gets small hits.
    Also, I have never dropped the iPod in my life, I use it daily and I've got it for about half a year now.

    I've dropped it... 3 times? max? all with case and from about 1m off the ground. Also all of a sudden when I came home one day there were 20ish scratches less than 1/2 a mm thick all over the screen >.<
