    Nothing to do...one you scratch AL, it's scratched. You should put a skin on it. Never let the back go uncovered if you are going to worry about scratches. iCarbons.com.

    Don't think there is. But I'd pay it no attention. Ignore it. Mine is scratched to buggery; it's the nature of the material.

    But the scratches are close to the port for the charger. I already have a zagg on the back...

    So what? Scratches are scratches. They won't effect the port, even if the port itself is scratched.

    I know you are right but the OCD in me makes it drives me crazy!

    Chill. IPad is almost indestructible.

    I'm the same about this sort of thing, it'd drive me mad but I'm afraid there's not much you can do, sorry! Like others have said though, best thing you could do is get a new case for the back, or you could try some sort of full body screen protector (don't know if these exist) to prevent it happening again?

    Zagg makes a full body, screen back,sides. Got one coming will let all know how it works out, what the pad no longer fits in, how else it complicates things. It's only fractions of a mm thick but the tolerances are pretty tight.
