    The screen is working good. There are rainbowish lines where the scratches are though. But should i replace the digitzer since I can actually feel the scratches?

    Im sorry I was going to write earlier but then got caught up in something else. You don't need to replace the digitizer since the screen is thick enough no to let the scratches go all the way through. I think you can get one of these http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-iPhone-3G-T...wItemQQptZPDA_Accessories?hash=item45f0b7a562
    This is for iphone 3g because ever since one kid dropped mine scratches like that appeared so now im trying to replace it myself once it comes.
