    Just wondering what everyone's using as a screen protector for their Sprint Hero. I can't really seem to find anywhere online that has a good one, so I was wondering what anyone else has used.

    Are there PhantomSkinz options? Anything BESIDES Zagg, which charges ********ly high prices?

    This is what I am rocking : BodyGaurdz I like them better than the Zagg product because they are exactly the same product, but substantially thinner, so you don't get as much of that tacky feel on screen. I have the full body kit and I love it.

    They offer the same lifetime warranty that Zagg does, but they ship you two of everything in the kit, so no waiting for replacementsmlike you have to with Zagg.

    Iv used zagg on other phones and they last, but i personally hate the gummy grippy feeping when tryin to slide my finger across the screen, believe it or not i use the mytouch 3g ones made by tmobile. You can get tuem on tmobiles web site, in their store, or walmart sells them also, there smooth like glass, and they dont scratch like ones i get from plaves like bestbuy agter a week of using them...there about 8 dollars for two and its the exact same size.

    Are the screen sizes and shape exactly the same on the MyTouch and the Hero, because if so, I may pick hem up and give them a try for just my screen, I hate the sticky too?

    I'll have to check these out as well. It's funny though. In the specs/reviews that I read before hand one of the things mentioned was that the screen was smudge resistant. However, it seems I am wiping my screen off after every use of the phone.

    Reluctant to recommend this, since you may be turned off by the relatively high price, but Martin Fields protectors are supposed to be quite good. Have NOT tried them myself, however.

    How "sticky" is the Bodyguardz screen protector compared to the naked screen? Is it an issue for you?

    No the screen is not the same size. I just went out and bought the My Touch 3g covers and they are they same size for viewable area however this leaves the black boarder around the viewable area unprotected and does not look or feel right. Shame on me before looking before I left the store.

    I love the BoxWave screen protectors. They are sized exactly for the screen and leave no bubbles whatsoever. You can choose between Crystal, which is almost 100% transparent and you won't even notice it is there, or Anti-Glare which reduces glare at the cost of some clarity.

    Take a look:

    It's not dust (I made sure the screen was really clean before installing). It looks like its the adhesive or something. Not sure why it's all speckled like that, though.

    It's been 48 hours since the install. Will these go away?
