    Ok, who did it? You know, the plastic overlay that came installed on the screen. Since day one, i have had it on, but it appear to be getting some small scratches from all the abuse my finger is giving it. Ive also been using the pouch that came with it. So, have you removed yours? Also, if you did....hows the screen holding up? Any scratches, marks, hairline scratches etc etc. :cool:

    I took mine off because of some really small air bubbles. No regrets yet... only thing on the screen are just smudge marks and fingerprints, not even the tiniest scratch. Then again, it's only day 3.

    I actually had a Sidekick LX before switching to this, and after 1 year the screen is still flawless. Even after being completely unprotected and being dropped several times on concrete.

    Hopefully this one will be just as resistant.

    Yeah I'm going to get Invisible Shield, too and keep my protector on until it comes.

    I'm trying to get in touch with the ZAGG people to see if we can do some free giveaways/contests on AndroidForums but we'll see... I just emailed them now.

    I'd really like to see/hear how these are fitting. The phones a bit more complicated than an iphone when it comes to laying something like this on.

    Me too, I've ordered an invisible shield for my PSP as a test to see if I like it' I'm concerned the screen will be distorted, and don't want to shell out for it if it's going to bug me. I have a cheap screen protector on my PSP and you can totally see this translucent pattern in the plastic, very distracting.

    I kept mine on. It had one air bubble on the top but I used my credit card to push it out. I'll keep it on as a screen protector for now.

    Well, mine came off today. The tap on the top of the plastic kept on coming down and i had to remove it cause i was having issues pulling down the notifications tab. Its a bit more responsive without the screen protector.

    I took mine off in front of the sales rep just after he told me the phone comes with a screen protector, he was like "oh..." as i tossed it into my bag.

    its a screen protector? isn't it just a plastic cover with super low adhesive that peels off instantly on the corners when met with a blunt object. Not really a screen protector.. just something to indicate the phone is brand new. lol. I up to date havent seen a phone that didnt' come with the so called "screen protector" if its brand new, so i think your sales rep just likes talking baloney. Probably also told you the stereo headset and 1gb micro was a free gift to you? :)

    and to those people that still have it on.. how do you stand it?? it even has a little tab thats asking for it to be pulled off. I pulled mine off before even lifting the phone out of the box.

    I've had mine since monday and took it off first thing. Just finger prints and smudges is all. I've never had much problem with screens it the corner that get boogerd up from dropping it, but so far I have managed not to let it drop

    I kept mine on until I received my bodyguardz yesterday. I've always used zagg until now and the bodyguardz was just as easy, if not easier, to apply. My baby is protected, woohoo!!

    They need an accessory sub forum. Where is the best place to go besides ebay?

    Since I received my G1 on Oct. 21st, I still have that factory plastic cover.
    Just waiting on that aftermarket to come so I can swap them right away.
