    When I got my X at BB yesterday, they offered to sell and install a none-tailor-made zagg shield that they would have had to cut and put on. Since they were discussing "how they were going to do it" I decided against it and went to VZW and got one from them... not happy with the VZW smoke screen...

    BB also stated that the custom made Zagg shield were on order and they should have them in 2 weeks. Yey!

    I bought a pack for my wife at Verizon and had one put on mine that I figured I would peel off later but to my surprise the anti glare from verizon are wonderful! I had a zag on my incredible and could not stand it..

    way to go BB...order accessories for the phone...after it drops..Yeah i would have declined the hack job on a universal one too. I too got the smoke screens<---which is an excellent term for it, and i'm not happy with them either.

    isn't there another brand that does these types of skins besides Zagg?

    I preordered my skin from Zagg the first week of July and there's not shipment date insight. I contacted customer service yesterday who informed me they have no tentative date. If I don't hear anything next week, I'm going to purchase from someone else.

    I've owned a few different protectors in the past, but I love Zagg's screens.

    Update: Zagg's CS has been absolutely terrible this week. Apparently they are overwhelmed with iPhone 4 screen orders and are extremely low on CSRs. I've called and was on hold for well over 15 minutes each time and gave up. I have emailed them several times about my preorder and haven't heard anything back. I called again this afternoon and received a message that they were closed due to them moving offices.

    I finally received an email informing me that their screens for the Droid X are delayed with not tentative date. I plan on canceling my order come Monday and looking for an alternative...this thing is a fingerprint magnet and I need some "protection" :p immediately!

    I've gone through a lot of phones and protectors, I swear by the "clear protector" brand ones.

    they are usually 1/2 price on ebay, and the seller is in draper, ut.

    Edit: Alright, well Zagg is a mind-****.

    Shortly after I posted the previous message about my order being delayed, I received an email saying my order has shipped...o_O

    Total bill was like $30. It was 7.99 for them to install, and the cover was maybe $22 - $23? Sometimes you have a pay a price for instant gratification and someone else doing the work.

    I just watched the video and that's probably between a hard plastic and a polymer that is self-healing like the Zagg or Clear Protector brands. I hate that in-between type.

    Really you just need the screen as the rest of the phone has a rubbery texture. Even above and below the screen on the face. Go ahead give your fingernail some love!

    I went to BB today after work and bought the custom Zagg screen protector for my Droid X and had them install it for me. I did not want to mess with wet application for the screen protector. I can never line up the protectors correctly. So far it looks great and if anything ever happens to it I can go back to BB to have it reapplied or replaced.:)

    My BB also had the full coverage protectors as well for the Droid X.
