Does anybody know if Apple dish out for repairs or replacements on scratched 3GS screens?
I managed to scratch it on the rivet of my jeans when I was taking it out of my pocket.
It's not the biggest scratch known to man, but knowing it's there is a spirit crusher. Especially when you're swiping away and feel it scraping your finger.

It would prob cost quite a bit. I suspect Apple would have to replace the whole screen which could cost you a ~$150

Do whatever you want to do man.

Perhaps you could get a screen protector for it. Then at least you may not feel the scratch as much with your finger.

I've thought about that, but I do enjoy the oleophobic coating. Cleaning is a breeze. I had a screen protector on my iPod Touch and that got quite scummy.
