Check your stylus!
 
My Sprint Diamond has got 3 scratches now. For each of them, I was using the stylus that came with the phone and I actually heard and felt that scratching moment.

I though it was a hit of a dust from the air and never thought it was the stylus itself.

Today I put on a screen protector, bingo, it got lots of scratches after few minutes of stylusing! This is a cheap protector pack bought from Walmart for $5.88, it simply lets the stylus show its full potentials!

I dug out the original box and saw a backup stylus in a sealed plastic bag. This one has no problem at all, totally scratch free on the same Walmart screen.

So, check your stylus ASAP and see if you're lucky like me!

BTW, the Walmart pack of 5 is not bad at all, especially for the price and local convenience. They have printed grids, easy to cut. Each piece can be cut into 2 for Diamond; so you actually got 10, way enough for practice. I wasted two pieces until the third time I did it bubble free. Each bubble means a dust there. I also cut a piece and put it on the camera face. The free one from Sprint is very good but I messed it up while trying to get rid of bubbles/dusts. Now piece of mind, for just 5 bucks.

Sprint Diamond here, no problems with my stylus, the original one, mind you, and I use it daily. I also have the spare one that came with it, it sits on my desk at home and has never been used. Sounds like you just got an unlucky one with the phone.

I noticed that my stylus would occasionally scratch the less expensive screen protectors ... however, the invisible shield by zagg seems to be unscratchable (if that is a word). It's really worth the extra $$.

When I had my vogue I used my stylus as a toothpick occasionally, A few weeks later I noticed my screen protector started scratching. Never again will I use my stylus as a toothpick

I never had issues with scratching.... I used the Screen Protector originally in the box.

I was going to say the same thing lol. I never had any problems with it scratching my screen until I started chewing on the end now and then.

I don't have a protector and I don't even have a scratch from my stylus. Of course I usually use my thumbs. :lol

Thumbs are the best way to go lol. When my friend found out my phone had a stylus he was like "dayum boy you got a shank in yo phone."

It was hilarious.

I use thumbs mostly otherwise I won't have got only 3 scratches! If it was not the Walmart screen protector, I still won't have realized it was the damn stylus and I'd get more.

Now I think I can remove the protector, but it is still better to have it in case I'll drop the phone. Also I actually get better touch responses with the protector on. It does not add any side effect to colors, brightness and clearness etc. I recall some color and font distortion with the Sprint protector.
