Do you use a screen protector on your phone? If so, which one?

Mine came with the OtterBox. But I've also used generic ones from Ebay. Never had an issue with them either.

Yes and I use cheap ones from eBay. But they don't last a long time so I am rethinking that strategy.

Yes - you can use a generic one and cut it to size.
I slightly scratched the screen on my phone with my keys in my pocket before I used a screen protector.

I bet the new materials are much better than the old Belkin screen protectors that are left over from a Palm device. I found a 30% discount code for Phantomskinz: winter30.

Wow, nwh10, never thought of using my old screen protectors from my old devices, I have a drawer full of them. I need one for my Ozone, never thought of those and the ozone has a small screen...mmmmmmmmmm.... I'm cheap. Also, I buy the .99 cent ones on ebay with free shipping, change them once a month or so.

The Otterbox protector is really great; its probably my fave. The ZAGG Invisible Shield is terrible. It works great for a couple of days, and then you get all these little ripples/bubbles in it. Plus its AWFUL to clean. I don't recommend mirror protectors either. They work fine inside, but if you take it outside, even on a rainy/overcast day, you can't see anything on your screen the glare is sooo bad.

HeyJude, the Belkin things were never great and still aren't. With the 30% Phantomskinz discount, I figure I can be the last of the big spenders at $6.96 delivered! I wonder if they're significantly better than the $0.99 ones.

Dolly, do you use the Otterbox kit that encloses the entire phone? Or just the screen protector?

Mike has the Commuter case on his Incredible right now; its a rubbery thin layer that fits over the phone, with a hard plastic cover that fits over the inner layer. Its nice but the outside cover is slick; if you put it on your dash and move at all your phone will sliideee right off into the floor of your car lol. He also had a Commuter on his Ozone also.
I had the Impact on my Ozone; it was a thick rubber tacky feel thing that you just slid over the outside of the phone, and it completely encased the phone, and you could put it on anything and it didn't move. It also doesn't get lint all over it when you put it in your pocket or handbag.
Mike just ordered the Defender case for his phone; its basically the same thing as the Commuter but it has a piece of plastic that adheres to the screen, not just the typical screen protector. A guy he works with has one for his IP4, and he took it and threw it against the wall and it didn't damage the phone at all. BUT I DON'T ADVOCATE DOING THAT!!!! LOL :D

Mine was 89 cents... lasted me for a long time! Before, i had invisashield on my Hero, i liked it, it was a small cover for the entire phone.
