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.
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.
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.
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.
