Nothing personal, but I rather appreciate any unlock progress than a paintwork. :D

Press your finger into a heap of sugar, and rub for all you're worth, until it wears off (took me half an hour!)

Thanks for the tip! It sounded so crazy I had to try it, gone with the logo in 17 minutes flat! Posted Image
Refreshing the sugar every minute helps a lot Posted Image

of course you're going to get scratches and spoil the finish...I won't touch mine.

I got a really great SIKAI black gel case with a thick screen protector which'll keep my OMC scratch free for years....

I just sold my 4 year old damage and scratch free nokia N95 for £85 on ebay...scratched up N95's go for approx. £30...

@dadashi

Sugar is used BECAUSE it does not scratch the finish of the plastic. It wasn't just an arbitrary decision to use it, if you think about it more. Your scepticism will evaporate, once you've tried this, but until you do, many others will confirm your fears are unfounded.

Someone bought an N95? I'd have bought an £8 Nokia 1800, which at least does what it is designed to.

It is true, I have also tried this sugar method on Optimus mark(idk if it is the same material used), but since I'm too impatient I didn't go all the way through so I quited after 3 or 4 minutes :P

But I had not a single scratch...

I actually didn't believe my eyes also, but the sugar really works!

Good heavens, how did you do that without damaging the shine?

Due to a terrible miscalculation of scale the entire battle fleet was accidentally swallowed by a small dog.

Just take a sugar cube and start rubbing it! you'll see it doesn't make any scratches as long as you don't press TOO hard...
