    Hi everyone,

    I hope I'm posting here in the right section.

    I've got my Samsung Galaxy S2 now for a while ago and I simply love it.

    When I was driving the car, my phone fell to the left side of my seat accidentally :(

    Now I've got a tiny scratch in the middle of the top of the screen, to be specific it's on the height of where we can see the clock on the right side (black background)

    It's not that serious but it's really annoying :(

    Do I have a guarantee on it or not? :S

    Is there a way that I can remove it?

    I really hope to read some useful tips and advices:(:eek:

    it might be a bit late but a heads up for later....
    ive put my phone under my house contents insurance. the phone ISP's want something like an extra $15 on your plan, my insurance company gave me three options...
    1)put in home contents cover for free. = something happens in the home its cover, outside, its not
    2)extra $6 = i am covered anywhere with damage/theft etc.... i have given them my serial/phones details and the insurance is LOCKED to the phone (no other item)
    3) extra $20 to cover ANY valuables up to $5000(camera/phone/watch, whatever)... dont have to have them listed, with an extra $20 premium on any claim.

    ive gone with the options 2. cheap and easy.
    Where you live will be different but have a look into other options for insurance to keep the peace of mind for these unfortunate mishaps.
    Any kind of "warranty" with the phone will only be a software related one, not physical damage.

    If the scratch is really tiny, a screen protector should conceal it and prevent further scratches.

    So why is it called "Gorilla Glass"????? I've got 2 tiny scratches on mine and the phone always stayed in my shirt pocket. I don't even know what scratched it. Thought it was "scratch proof"......

    It's not scratch proof, it's scratch resistant, there’s a huge difference.

    Samsung won't cover accidental damage and usually covers from carriers/networks don’t either. Give it a try but don't get your hopes up. As suggested already a screen protector should at least partially conceal it.

    People who keep saying you don't need screen protectors are partially responsible for this, so many think they are safe because it's Gorilla Glass when they're not.

    If your phone is still insured tell them your phone is overheating and the battery won't charge they will replace your phone and you will get your new phone :)

    Little you can do except replace the screen. The glass is hard to scratch but it can be scratched. Either get used to the scratch or pay to have it fixed, OR lie and try to get a new one with the over heating scam.
