Default Aria Scratches?

So to my surprise, when I took my phone out of my pocket today, I noticed that I had a few scratches near the bottom!

Anybody else have any? I mean I haven't even dropped my phone yet...and it's mainly been in my pocket the whole time.

No scratches, but the screen is terrible with fingerprints compared to my old iPhone 3G.

I leave mine in my pocket the majority of the day as well and don't have any scratches. However I don't keep ANYTHING in my pocket with it. Not even a dime.

I put a screen protector and also one of those rubber cases that fit snuggly around it, so now it wont get scratched and if I drop it, it has less of a chance of getting damaged

yea I don't keep anything in that pocket either! besides maybe uhh the Zune HD occasionally when the other pockets are full but that has a silicone case on it! ahh this is driving me nuts. =(

I mean, its not anywhere near the screen, but at the bottom right edge and one a little onto of the search button. Actually I'm starting to think its from my jeans and the button thingy next to pockets or so. sorry I suck at describing things.

Its just a soft shell I guess.

HTC Black Soft Shell Gel Case - HTC Aria A6366 - Cell Phone Accessories - Wireless from AT&T

I didnt want anything bulky. It just presses onto the back of it. only issue is its hard to push the unlock button, and its expensive. but Im not so worried about dropping it. i also got the aria specific screen protectors.
i work construction as a plumber and often I get sand or rocks in my pockets.

I'm wondering if getting a screen protector would help it. I hate when you do clean it and if the phone isn't locked it does things like your pressing buttons.

I dont get that problem, but I do still get smudges. the nice thing about it is, when it gets scratched up, just put a new screen protecter on and its good as new. They do scratch easier than the screen itself, but I rather live with a scratched up screen pro. than a scratched fon
