    i don't usually like to do things this way, but i just don't have all the info here.

    i recall a post either here or on another android forum suggesting the material that comprises the droid incredible screen is unusually robust all on its own and a glue on screen protector is overkill/unneccessary. the post included a video of some guy trying to mess up his screen with a few items, but it turned out just fine...without a protector.

    thoughts?

    I have personally scratched my screen. It's worth spending the couple of dollars for the added protection. Every incredible that I have come across without the screen protector has been scratched in some way or another. You can get them on eBay for just over 2 or 3 dollars.

    Or if you're lazy (like me!) There is invisishield for about $20 Installed at most malls - again, well worth it.

    +1 on on buying a screen protector.

    I always do and never use a case....too bulky. The ones from Verizon don't glue on, work more like a really strong wall-cling leaving no tackiness or damaging the phone.

    I agree. I use big bulky cases and don't use them,but if I went "naked" I would have one.

    I use one. I'm glad I do. Key scratches and such are not fun to look at.

    Why would you put your phone in your pocket with keys?

    I do not use a case or screen protectors. I look at the money I spent on my phone as an investment and actually take care of my phone. I realize accidents happen but some people are down right careless with $500 dollar devices.

    I picked up 5 of the static cling screen protectors on eBay for $2.95.
    For a little extra protection you can't beat the price.

    Unlike the OG Droid the Incredible is not equipped with a scratch resistant Gorilla Glass Screen, so yes I would recommend some sort of screen protector

    Like everyone else has said, it's good insurance. The original Incredible I had got a really small scratch in the screen and it annoyed the hell out of me.

    I only use a screen protector to minimize the finger prints which drives me crazy.

    I have the same conversation with my girlfriend. She has a 4 year old MOTO razr. It's beat all to Hell. Why can't she just dedicate a pocket to just the phone. You always know where it is. I don't understand the big unorganized purse anyway.

    Haha. Yeah, I can understand that. Sometimes (Most of the time) we're all in a rush to get ready or get to where we need to go and just toss it in there. I know I do. I'm glad I have the protector things.

    I can definitely understand the need for cases and screen protectors they are just not for me.

    I don't use one on my Dinc but I do have a Sedio case that I like a lot. I've dropped my phone several times and one time it cartwheeled down the road. The case did its job. I don't keep anything in the same pocket as my phone so the way I look at it, if a rock hits the screen it's going to do a lot more damage than just a little scratch. No plastic film is going to stop a scratch.

    Had my dinc for about six months. One of the first things i did when i got it was slap on a screen protector. Just changed it the other day..held it up to a light revealing a crossword puzzle of scratches while leaving my dinc in pristineish condition. I’d say yeah defiantly get one.
