To Sqeekybigfoot... I used the generic Verizon screen protector on my DX for awhile (maybe 4 or 5 months?) before I upgraded to the SGP Crystal Clear. Let me tell you, I didn't realize how AWFUL my phone had looked until I put a quality protector on. THEN, I was kicking myself for having waited so long. Make the change sooner rather than later. I'm sure you'll be glad you did. You've paid good money for a great phone, make the best of it!
