    was just trying to clean the screen of my touch which has become really sticky and non-slippery when i saw the scrratch!

    I do not want to try to remove it. I just wanna know, can apple help? I bought it mid-october without any extra protection plan....
    I get the rainbow effect when i see white below the scratch, but the area over the scratch is still sensitive.
    What protection (case) should I get in order to avoid future scratches?
    What can i do about the heavily scratched back of my ipod?
    Another thing, how to get that like-new slippery screen back?

    For protection from future scratches, you should get a BSE or an invisible shield.

    To get rid of the scratch, I recommend the Applesauce iPod polish.

    Definitely pick up the Invisible Shield. I keep seeing all these people going on about how the screen won't scratch - it's GLASS - glass scratches. Not easily, but it does scratch...

    I don't understand which part of your post do you express being OK with it. I put mine in an iPod sock everytime I don't use it. I never set it down without one on. And I brush metalize the back so scratches are no worry.

    I have the exact same problem, when I posted no one had a solution.
    Hope some one can figure out what works with the touch by now

    I still find it amazing that people still think there's some magical cure or solution that can fix scratches. A scratch is permanent. It is a chunk of the surface that has been damaged and is now missing. Thinking there's is some solution that can just erase scratches is the same as thinking there's a magical potion that can put together a decapitated leg. And if its affecting his screen with a rainbow effect then even if there was such a solution it wouldn't matter because he has damaged the display along with the glass.

    Definitely put some kind of protective film on it.

    hmm I'm debating whether or not to get the invisible shield. I have the iclear by griffin right now but I'm feeling like it's too thick. I'm also thinking about a silicon case (for shock absorption).

    If you're willing to spend some money on a case you should buy the Griffin iReflect. If you're just leaving it in your pocket or in a backpack it's great. I don't have a single scratch.

    LOL

    How do you decapitate a leg? Legs don't have heads!
