OK, I was able to find something pretty good!
Went to the T-Mobile store (not a kiosk - but a brick and mortar store) and they had a real nice silicone gel protector for the case and they had a screen guard/protector that is cut precisely to fit the screen. You get two protectors in the screen kit.
I must warn everyone, be very very careful with the screen protector because, it picks up oil from your fingers, dust from the air. It has what appears to be a light translucent adhesive that sticks to the plastic screen. This adhesive surface is most difficult to get clean once it attracts any substance. If you are forced to wipe it, you must use a very clean cloth and you must "swipe" with good pressure only in one direction, one swipe only before changing the cloth's wiping surface which is to be changed on every swipe. Otherwise you will just re-wipe the scunge you just took off. Get it right the first time because if you have to pick it up, you'll find it much harder to eliminate air pockets. Mine is not perfect because I thought it would be much easier than it is.
So, I've got the case protected and more importantly the screen isn't going to get dinged.
Both products carry the T-Mobile logo but do not contain the actual manufacturer's name, address or any other info. Total cost = $25.60.
