    Soft Plastic Backing on Maxx

    I am referring to the back of the phone, the layer of plastic, and then on top of it is a couple of stickers.

    I've had my MAXX now for a little over a month. I haven't gotten a case that I like, and meanwhile, the back of my phone has gotten all scratched up. I halfway pulled off the protective plastic backing, and noticed that only the plastic was scuffed up, and the phone was fine.

    I would like to peel off this plastic backing, and preserve the stickers. Can I buy plastic (with, I guess you call it adhesive) to fit the phone?

    Is there a point to keeping those stickers, really?

    Case wise, I purchased the Otterbox commuter case, which I absolutely hate. Why? I use my phone a lot on the car dock and the two do not fit. I read that they do, and the poster was incorrect at my expense. I'm thinking of trying a ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD case. It looks thin enough to fit the car dock. Plus, I wasn't impressed with the size of the Otterbox Commuter's screen protector.

    Cases and screen protectors are unnecessary in my opinion I don't use 1 now and I didn't use 1 on my X and I haven't had any issues

    That's what I'm thinking. I don't plan on purposely dropping my phone 6 feet above or throwing it across the room or anything like that on purpose. The only thing I can think of that might damage it is if I run over it. I'm disabled, I'm in a wheelchair. Why would I do that unless I've had too many shots of whiskey or something and just being an idiot? That's the only reason I can think of. The screen has been fine without a case, it's just the back I'm concerned about. That all said, the highest it would be dropped is about 3 feet, onto either concrete or wood floor. I've dropped my phone in my van a couple of times while attempting to dock/undock it, but it lands on a soft surface. No big deal there.

    The zagg or the military shield are great. Zagg is kind of grippy to me though. But I have one of each one my two maxx's, they're a pita to install on the sides... but the screen and back are cake..

    I keep mine in a hard shell case. It does detract form the appearance of the phone and when I feel like being flashy, the MAXX goes full monty. However, I like to protect the phone from everyday wear and tear beacause eventually, it's going to end up on eBay when some shiney new toy gets released and I like to be able to say it's in like new condition.

    The case/no case, screen protector is and has been a debated issue probably since cell phones became a pocketable device.

    The Facts are:
    - These are $600+ devices that maybe one has insurance and maybe not BUT even with insurance it is a $100.00 mistake and you will receive a refurb to replace your once new phone.

    - Maybe with luck all you will have to endure is a dinged, dented, scratched once new - still functional phone.

    - It only takes one drop and doubtful it would be intentional.

    - There are drawbacks as well as advantages to cases, as an example my OtterBox Commuter actually makes my Maxx buttons easier to use on a daily basis.

    - Bottom line, ALL phones are owned by one person that can do with the device what they choose, I am not trying to convince anyone to ensconse their pocket computer in a case because I don't think I own any phone case company stock.

    Proceed at your own risk.

    Question Soft Plastic Backing on Maxx - Did you ever figure out how to fix it?

    Did you ever figure out how to fix it? Or whether you should keep the 2 labels with numbers but take the plastic cover off? Mine is doing the same thing after a couple months and i don't know whether to tape it back on or what.

    The plastic can be pulled off and and stuck to something else. I personally stuck it to my RAZR reciept and put it in the box.

    The IMEI number can also be found in the SD card flap. So in all honesty you could just throw the thing away. I just kept mine for completion sake.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    2nd for peeling off the stickers, I stuck them to the refrigerator door. (just to piss off the old lady, but she never said a thing!?!)

    Cases and screen protectors will be argued over forever. I use them to protect my phone, because it is an expensive tool that I use every day. I find nothing sexy about a cell phone, but what ever floats your boat. One case I've got for my last three phones its the Verizon basket weave. It doesn't add much bulk and has a kick stand so you can watch videos hands free.
