    I don't believe they have been available yet, according to multiple emails from them to various people on here, they should be available early this week.

    Yes and yes. They're not available yet so they're not in stock. :)

    I believe he's asking because the message says "Temporarily Out of Stock", so he's trying to determine if they were ever in stock.

    Nobody here has posted that they've purchased one, so my guess is they've never had them in stock.

    I realize that. I was answering a vague question matter of factly. They put the items up on the website as placeholders for getting the first inventory of the protectors. They were never in stock to begin with.

    They were never in stock. Last week we were told either late last week or early this week.

    I'm still curious, what is it about these that people are so nuts about? I haven't used a screen protector on my last 4 phones...iPhone 3G, Palm Pre, HTC hero and now Incredible. With glass screens, it seems kind of moot.

    I don't think I'd want to take the chance after reading a handful of reports from people that have gotten scratches after carrying them around in empty pockets.

    I did see the tests with keys, someone should try it with other things like sand paper.

    its a users choice, for me they dont make the device act any different and after a day i dont even remember its on there. its makes it easy to clean and will take any hits that might do something to the screen. its $10-15 for some added insurance just in case

    Also note that the Steinheils come in the anti-fingerprint variety. Many people are bothered by fingerprints and dust, etc getting on the screen.

    I previously thought that I would get the anti-fingerprint, but fingerprints don't really bother me. You can't notice them unless the screen is off. But I also heard that anti-fingerprint helps with glare/viewing the screen outside.

    Yup got mine

    Well if you carry this in your pocket and you have a grain of sand in there, which is in all soil it will scratch easily, just look close and the windshield in your car and you will see its basically totally full of small scratches and that glass is very tough on a car, when you have scratches on a windsheild it doesnt mean much because its so huge and clear and you sit far away from it, but when its on the screen of a small phone thats backlit you do notice it 10000% percent more easily

    I guess I'm just ultra careful? Like I said my last 4 phones I've had no screen protection and never had a scratch. I carry it in my pocket but without anything else. Not keys and definitely not sand paper. Also, in the end, it's just a phone.

    My issue is I've had screen protectors in the past that were fantastic but they just never felt the same as using the glass screen. You lose something in the process.
