    Can someone recommend a good quality screen protector for the Prevail? Seems like a lot of the brick and mortar stores don't have any cases or screen protectors for this phone yet. For the moment, I am using an ipad screen protector that I cut myself to fit the phone but it looks pretty bad. I ordered some ezguards from amazon but later read somewhere online that they are really cheap and flimsy and fall off. Thanks.

    I got some from ebay, supposed to be good I have not received them yet so I can not comment on that.
    For now im using cut to fit and I agree its pretty bad but it does what its supposed to do.

    I reread this and found grounds for alert!
    I said "there is water under the screen" when I meant there is water between the shield and the buttons ON TOP of the screen.

    I didn't want to have someone read that and freak out because of possible water damage. :)

    I got ever so lucky. I work at a 12volt car audio shop and yesterday we had a company come by that installs chip shield on cars. I had him make me a custom shield. Works awesome. He used water and heat to put it on. Its light strong and very responsive to touch. No bubbles smooth look. It was really easy for him to do. Anybody that access to that should try, even if you locate a car dealership that does it and stumble in and hit the installer up with a nice tip. It will be worth the effort.

    I bought the Amzer jelly case and I love it! Very durable and they fit great. I'm sorta glad I want with those originally. Even my sister bought one and she loves it. The design on the back is nice as well.

    I see I forgot to update this, I received the cover and the screen protector and I am happy with them.

    The case is soft and flexible but it stays on very well, the screen protector is bubble free though it did take careful application. I have had them on for a while I wiped it with the cleaning cloth before snapping the pic but I didnt take and "clean" it.

    I've tried two different kinds, the first was the really cheapo ones from ebay. Had a lot of irregularities etc... ended up purchasing the below ebay one. Came with two. i really like the matte finish, doesn't show fingerprints and fingers slide really well over the surface. The non-matte finish screen covers always seemed sticky to me...

    I got 4 screen protectors from ebay. I paid $2 for all 4, including shipping. I got them from this seller named prestigesolutions. You can see their listing at...

    3X - CT Samsung Prevail LCD Screen Protector Guard - 3X | eBay

    The protectors were very cheap. They stay on the device by static cling. But I'm extremely happy with the results. I was a bit worried about the water on the screen... but it helped me push out the bubbles. The next morning the screen was set. I'm guessing that if I dont pull off the screen protector everything will be fine.

    One thing though... they said to leave the battery out for 6 hours or something... I didn't do that. I put the screen protector and pushed out the bubbles and after about 5 minutes put the battery back in. Everything was fine. But I should add that I used a very little bit of water. A few drops.

    Hope that helps someone.

    I just got in a case and screen protector I got from Bemz off of amazon. The case fits very well and the screen protector went on easy with minimal air bubbles, Phone still responding as normal too. Only issue was i got a different design on case than i ordered.

    If you got yours from the same ebay source I did then its tough to beat the price, less then $3 I can give up the better looks.

    I ordered a full body by clear protector last month on sale for $20 shipped.

    Freaked out because parts of the screen were unresponsive and I thought I broke the damn phone. (Had battery removed during installed and waited an hour)

    Anyways, I'm glad I installed the full body shield, too bad the silver trim around the phone isn't covered, that's where I have some dents from a drop (GASP)!

    ZAGG has the invisible shield for this phone. I just installed mine and waiting for it to dry now. I'd recommend ZAGG simply because of how easy it was to install it. I bought extreme guard from amazon for $4 and those were crappy. Just spend $15 for a ZAGG for a better screen protector.
