Scratches on the iPhone camera? *gasp*

hi guys

any of you with scratches on your camera lens? Mine is so badly scratched that the quality is pretty bad. It looked very whitewashed when i look at it at the computer

After looking thru the net i've kinda ruled out changing the back casing(can get it on ebay) because of all the horror stories. SO i thought of trying out displex? Any of you tried it before?
Or have u guys tried dvd/cd cleaners?

Apple support is out for me for the moment

I made a post on this issue a few months back and was scoffed at by a few members of the community. "its got the same high quality scratch resistant glass as the screen!" they cried.

Yet the issue remains the same: if and when the screen gets scratched, you're sunk. Apple did very little to protect the lens.

it's not that hard to replace the back cover. My wifes was trashed and I replaced it with one I got off of ebay. It looks new and you would never know it has been changed except it doesn't say iphone and it doesn't show the size. It's a very clean look.

so the lens is part of the back casing then?



Every signature I've ever had has been modified within days. This is all that's left.

Well, the lens cover is part of the back case.

Yeah, I have a scratch on mine. No idea how it got there since I keep very good care of it, but it's there all the same.

So far it doesn't really seem to affect the picture quality, but I sure am sick of the damn red/green tint.... I don't even bother taking pictures with it, the quality sucks.

Thanks for the replies but i think a few people tried replacing the back cover and it's quite difficult. One person in this forum i think intend to give it for free after screwing it up i think.( saw it last week)

Anyways i got a cd cleaner thingie will try later when i got the guts... will post updates

wish me luck
