Okay so I was ignorant to think I didn't need a screen protector - thought it would look "lame" but unfortunately I've gotten a small scratch on the screen of my month old Tour. Thought if I never put it in my pocket and used the holster and all it would be fine.
BUT! I have a small scratch and was wondering if anyone has advice how to get rid of it or at least minimize it???

1. Get a screen protector yesterday.
2. There are some screen scratch fixes out there... I've never seen one that really worked well. I don't recall the name of the product, but at Automative stores there is some scratch repair liquid, but I don't guarantee it.
At this point, I'd minimize your grief by getting protection from here forward.

I was under the impresson the Blackberry touch screens were difficult to scratch. Under hard conditions nothing is unscratchable.
If the scratch really bothers you, bring your phone back to your dealer, and let them send it back to Blackberry service. They can replace the screen or the screen bezzel. It's not going to be cheap to change.
You can try using a polishing compound that is for acrylic surfaces. With a lot of time, skill at hand polishing, and a lot of patients it is possible to polish out the scratch. Turtlewax is one manufacture that makes polishes for acrylic.
When polishing the screen surface you will remove some of the optical anti-glare coating. This is the downside for polishing.
If you put on a screen protector, it may mask the scratch if the scratch is very small.
A number of years ago I had a phone where I made a scratch in the screen. I sent it back, and they changed the screen. It cost me about half the price of a new phone.
