    I bought the screen protector as well for my droid and i have to say, it is not very good because it takes away all the sensitivity for the touch functions so it becomes very hard to do anything on the surface. I kept searching to see if there was a way to increase the sensitivity but i did not see any menu options for that setting. Anyone know if there is one?

    Are you talking about the privacy screen protector or the generic 3 pack ones? I held off ordering any because I was concerned about what you describe...

    The privacy screen protector is what i got, its kinda thick coated plastic so it interferes with the droid sensing your touch. I'm probably going to return it later on today because of that

    Ah, thanks. I've never had one (screen protector) that I liked so I don't know why I thought this would of been different. Oh well, guess I'll just have to be super careful!

    I got the real screen protector the 3 pack and they are just like they are on every other phone. But i can say, for me it's much needed. The screen is a disaster zone for fingerprints and everything.

    Privacy Protectors

    Just got back from the Verizon store. The privacy protectors are defective, the plastic is too thick.

    I ordered the Zagg screen protector. Hopefully will be shipped today. Will give a review when I get it.

    Me too. I did not realize that there are 2 sides you have to peel off.. I peefled of the first side and put it on the phone..then I peeled just the stick not the entire protector. It works ok for me.. (3 pack from Verizon)

    Thanks for the info guys! I was contemplating ordering the screen protectors from the VZW website, but I think I'll just order from Zagg today.

    Myself and my son both got the privacy screen protectors from the Verizon store and they are very thick and REALLY kill the touch. Which store quit selling them?

    Same ones we got and not sure how anyone could say they are OK, compared to the original usage they absolutely frustrate the crap out of you on some functions, it either doesnt move, scrolls by or selects.....:icon_evil:

    Yeah most VZW stores that I have heard about have stopped selling the privacy screens as they were defective (too big)... the screen protectors though are right on the money.
