  1. 1

    Check that your phone doesn't have a thin plastic cover on the screen. New BlackBerrys come with a screen protector adhered to the display, but it's not always noticeable if you've already put a case on the phone. If the plastic cover is still there, peel it off. Chances are, you've scratched only the protector and the screen beneath is fine.

  2. 2

    Use scratch remover or display polish, available at most retail outlets and auto parts stores. Squeeze a small dab onto the BlackBerry screen, then apply gentle pressure and wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth. This should fix the majority of surface scratches.

  3. 3

    Invest in a screen protector, available online and at your BlackBerry retailer. The best way to ensure that your screen won't get scratched again is to shield it from the start.

  4. 4

    If all else fails and the scratch is still severe, consider buying a new lens screen. Purchase one directly from BlackBerry or search online for a replacement lens or professional repair service. Make sure you have your BlackBerry model information on hand.

Tips and warnings

  • No time to run to the store and pick up display polish? Using scratch remover for eyeglasses on your BlackBerry can be a quick in-home fix.
