    As crazy as it sounds, you can use toothpaste to remove them if they are small enough. It's an old school trick I used to use on CD's.

    EDIT: Be sure to use an older toothpaste style (opaque solid color toothpaste) and not any gel types.

    Toothpaste can be a little too abrasive. A better thing to use is Brasso.

    Brasso is a metal polish, not plastic. I used it on my PSP faceplate and it scratched it up even more. If you are going to use brasso, you're either going to have to spend hours polishing or use an electric polisher...which can do more damage than good. I suggest you just live with your scratches.

    I don't think there is a way to actually remove the scratch. ( buy a screen protector)

    Is a crack or a scratch? I think it a difference. Also was it from the bottom screen?

    I think the flaw from it really is it make it easy to put to much pressure on it, it doesn't just
    outright scratch your screen.
