    I've heard those invisibleSHIELDs offer some good protection, but I found this statement on their website:

    "Warning! If you have a painted HTC Hero, the invisibleSHIELD could peel the paint"

    So, I e-mailed them with the question whether or not it would be safe to use the Full Body Protection for my white HTC Hero (EU). This is their reply:

    "In regards to your email, we have only had a few problems with the invisibleSHIELD removing the paint. However, if there is a impact damage and something cracks the chrome it could tend to peel off when you remove the invisibleSHIELD."

    Does this mean I can safely use it as long as I don't have cracks in the chrome?
    Does anyone have experience with this full body protection from ZAGG? I want to be sure before I buy it :)

    Thanks in advance.

    I have used invisible shield on many phones and it has always been a great protector. I have never had any issues with it damaging the phones at all. Once you have it on, I can't imagine you would even want to take it off, but if you did, it should be fine - just depends on the quality of the product you are coating.

    I am thinking of putting a screen protector on my Sprint Hero that I just got the other day, but I will only do the screen on this since the body has that nice rubbery or leathery (I still can't figure out what the back is) feel.

    I have the InvisibleShield for my HTC Hero. I purchased the full-body option purely because the screen only version wasn't available at the time and I wanted to protect my new toy straight away.

    In the end I've only bothered to partially apply the protector, I've done the screen and also the back of the unit. This (back) bit just covers the battery cover which I find useful since without it I found the Hero a bit to "slippy" and likely to slide off a table, the protector gives it a more "sticky" feel. I didn't bother to add the small strips down the side and at each end.

    You're probably right to do that. I had the Invisibleshield for iPhone and whilst it looked good to start with, the smaller segments quickly started to peel.

    P.S. You must have your tables at strange angles in your home! ;)
