    Screen Cover

    Do you really need one of those plastic screen covers? Seems like they come off fairly easy and I know quite a few people without them who have no scratches nicks.

    It is gorrila glass on the Droid, but it is scratchable. Believe me, I scratched mine. A grain of sand etc could do the damage. I use phantom skinz and it does not move so I am not sure what you were looking at? It is applied using a water/soap mix as many of the top ones are.

    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    I scratched my screen wiping it on my jeans... but I think once you get the proper microfiber cloth, the protecter wouldn't be necessary.. just me though.

    Not the good steinheil crystal no. Well... you might be able to find them at a kiosk in a mall or something but nowhere convenient. Their shipping is FAST though and this way you don't have to pay tax (well, less you live in a gay a$$ state like Ca. or something, didn't look at your info).

    The protectors I got keep coming off, very annoying. How many people use screen protectors?

    I can't stand not having one. I use the bodyguardz by nlu products. They come two to a pack but I have had one on a curve for seven months now and haven't had to change it yet. It covers the whole phone and keeps the prints from sticking to the screen like they do when you don't have the protector on. I hate having fingerprints all over my screen and without the protector it seems like it is always dirty!! NLU Products
    You know you should look for the humor in everything because you look much sexier when you smile!!!
