    Is there a way to remove the plastic screen from the Otterbox so you can see the Razr screen only but still keep the Otterbox?

    I just kinda popped it out, I have the ZAGG installed on the phone and the OtterBox one interfered a bit. I took the front cover off and just pushed the screen protector toward what would be the back, there's a sticky glue strip you have to kind of peel off afterward but other than that, no problems at all.

    Yeah I use my fingers, easiest to start at top right, the big lugs are attached to the bottom. I didn't pay attention when I put it together and tried using a pocket knife, it didn't work out so well. Besides the large lugs, there are other snaps you will see on the sides. A fingernail in them works well once you have a corner popped apart, just work your way around. Good luck!

    Yep, thanks! Came out easier than I thought and really makes a big difference overall. I removed the stock screen protector and had a different stick-on one installed at kiosk at our local mall. Put the case back together and wow it's way nicer looking. Thanks.

    Glad I could help! I've also read that people would get sand/dirt/etc. behind the OtterBox screen protector. I prefer the one that STICKS to the screen. ;-)

    I decided not to remove the Otterbox protector screen. If I break the LED screen, the company will ***** that I'm responsible. It's a company phone.
