    I ordered my Otterbox Defender and I did not realize that Otterbox supplies a screen protector with the case. My Question is? Has anyone removed the supplied screen protector? It this screen protector Built into the Shell ? I want to keep my screen protector, Is this possible?

    Thanks

    When I had mine for the iphone yes it is built into the shell. Very well infact.

    As far as leaving one on underneath I am unsure

    Well I've got an invisible shield on my dx and have a defender on the way, so unless someone beats me to it ill let you know how it works in conjunction with the built in one on the defender case

    I just received my Defender and already have a Invisible Shield by Zagg screen protector on the X. I haven't removed the Zagg yet BUT with it on there and the one on the OB, it's kinda bubbly looking. So far I don't like both being on at the same time.

    Would it be possible to Remove the Otterbox Screen Protector (with a sharp instrument) and still keep the the overall appearance as close to stock as possible?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure with a razor knife you could do just that. I'm trying to determine which one to remove. It'd be a lot easier to pull the one off of the phone and just use the OtterBox case protector. But, if the one on the OB was bubbly, I'd be pissed for removing the Zagg because it looks good. I wonder what everyone else has done?

    I just received the otterbox defender today. My phone has the maximum protection from zagg. YES the zagg will work with otterbox. but the screen protector looks really bubbly when you press on it. Im going to wait till i get the commuter in before i decide on removing the zagg screen protector.

    It's just glued in a few spots on the inside. You can remove it with no permanent consequences with a little care.
    My Omnia used to bubble so what I did was remove it, let it just sit and when I put my Omnia in it removed the bubbles. Plus the defender cover is easily scratched

    It will work with another protector but you do loose some sensetivety. I switched back to Seidio.

    I removed my screen protector (VZW's) from my x, installed the OB Defender, and reinstalled the screen protector on the Defender screen cover. Screen sensitivity/use is unaffected and now the OB Defender will remain unscratched, an issue I had with a Defender on an Omnia...live and learn.

    My question: why spend $50 on an obviously well thought out, engineered case, only to cannibalize it? I mean, the ONLY reason I bought the OB after having the rugged was BECAUSE the former has an integrated screen protector. Again, my screen usage has been unaffected by the OB screen protector WITH a VZW screen protector installed on top of it. I've even experimented with gloves that I've sewn conductive thread into the fingertips and again, not one issue regarding screen functionality.
