I would assume coating right? but how am I to tell, the one that is bothering me you can actually feel..but its tough to really tell if its the screen or coating. I can't think of a time i was handling anything so sharp or hard that would cause this, but who knows. I certainly was not walking around with diamonds or sand in my pocket.

".. dropped, kicked all over the place.. " I mean.. WHO IN THE HECK IS KICKING THEIR PHONE???
about your other 3G phone. History would suggest that you do the same.
I have had mine for a while and not a mark on it and NO screen protector.
Also if you did the same thing (that caused the scratch) to your other phone who is to say it wouldn't happen.
You are jumping way to quick in to this to say 3G screen is better and 3GS screen sucks with out REAL proof (bad photo does not count). The coating is less then .5 mm. I seriously doubt that is what scratched. For all we know it a piece of dried cheese on their.

I'm sorry, but if you google for scratched iPhone, you'll find all sorts of 3G, 2G and 3GS horror stories. It's simply a numbers game, and people that had a scratch on their phone were at the @ss end of the odds.
My first ( and defective 3GS ) scratched while in my pocket by itself. My co-worker has dropped his a few times, throws in the same pocket with his keys, and his screen looks brand new. Some people will scratch their screen. Period. That's ALL that has been proved.

I don't care about the oleophobic screen at all. Since I always used screen protectors, it never mattered to me, I'm just saying, I had a 3G and got a scratch on the screen in the first week. Then went right out and got a screen protector to save myself from getting any more. With my 3Gs, I got a screen protector on day 1, coating or not.
Now, stop being a whiney baby. Your screen is scratched. Boo hoo. Get over it. Lesson learned. If you have such a problem with it, go make an appointment with one of Apple's geniuses and complain to them. When I scratched my 3G, it was my fault. Lesson learned. Got a screen protector. End of story. Sheesh.

Yeah Entertainment, you sure are whining a lot on here. And I did read the whole thread. Unfortunately I won't get those few minutes of my life back.
Anyway, as has been stated here, glass can scratch. Period. Want to protect it, put a screen protector on. Don't want to? Deal with the potential consequence. Pretty simple.
All you need is a little sand on your hand or in your pocket. Instant scratch. It doesn't take much. Glass is more resistant to scratches, but it's not scratch proof. Now quit whining.
