    I would think its a personal preference. I don't have one, I use a belt holster. I do have a couple of tiny little light scratches but don't really notice them unless the light hits it a certain way.

    I never could get into the screen protectors ... even on my OG Droid.
    I use the shell holster from Verizon as well and think it provides good protection for me. Guess it all comes down to how you use it and your needs.

    It doesn't "need" one, but I always recommend them to be safe. My old phone supposedly had gorilla glass and it got scratched

    I hate screen protectors, it means I don't get to feel the smooth glass of my screen!!!

    I'm with the guys above. I use the shell holster and no screen protector and have had no problems. I quit using the protectors on my OG Droid and as long as you don't stick it in a pocket with change or keys you shouldn't have a problem unless you drop it a lot or let kids play with it.

    I would suggest Steinheil's screen protectors. Relatively easy to apply and available in a matte and crystal texture. I got matte and though it does cut down on the clarity just a bit it feels great to use.

    I concur. My Steinheil protector feels just like glass. You can't even tell it's on. I scratched my TB within two days of ownership before the Steinheil was delivered. Gorilla glass my ass. My Storm1,2 and DX never had any scratches.

    I also suggest Steinheil. Luckily I purchased mine in advance so They came the day before my TB so this first thing I did after activation was put it on, I purchased the crystal version. It feels just like the glass and doesn't hinder clarity at all

    i know a screen protector protects your screen from minor scratches, but its not going to save it from anything more than keys/coins in your pocket. it'll scratch and break if you drop the phone. Now with that in mind... why not just put the phone in the pocket without the keys?

    i dont use a protector on mine because it lowers the viewing quality of the screen. why buy a phone with such a nice screen (iphone, any newer droids, etc) then cover it up with a cover that changes how the screen looks in a negative way?
