    My Zte Warp is on it's way from BoostMobile and i wanted to order a Skinomi skin so when the phone gets here i can immediately protect it. To my understanding the back of the Warp is rubber/ soft touch stuff with ridges in it. Will this even stay on the phone??? Skinomi TechSkin - ZTE Warp Silver Carbon Fiber Skin Protector Thanks ahead of time.

    Had my skin on for a week and so far no problems. When I first got the skin, part of the skin wasn't even attach to the paper that it was shipped on. I thought, all Sh*t, the glue dried up, and it won't stick to the phone. BUT when I put the sticky part of the skin on the phone, then I got the hair dryer going. heated the skin up a little, and now I'm a happy camper

    Yep, got the skinomi, took forever to get. The carbon skin is thicker than the clear front. I really like the skin and the phone :)

    But does it sweep around and cover the botton in the from? or does it only cover the battery door? Or is it like this one where it covers the front? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWFUStV4RiM&feature=related

    There is one large piece that covers the battery cover, then there are 3 narrow pieces that cover the sides of the phone. Plus you get the clear for the front.

    @ronk734. I am new to this whole skinomi thing. So does this replace having to buy a case? How durable is it? I am interested in purchasing the silver one. Thanks for the picture too!

    HEll no! If you drop your phone a lot you need a case. It's not shock proof its really just scratch proof for the screen and the housing. If you buy a case there is no need to get this. But you still need a screen protector. Skinomi is pretty good. i had it on my Zune HD for months......before i lost it.

    I settled on this one for my warp, but before doing so I researched the hell out of it. In theory, it does provide basic protection for the device, however, I'm not absolutely positive how much protection it provides if it's dropped. I have a hard shell case for the PoS iPhone I have and it's provided fairly effective protection against drops and the occasional throwing, but it usually pops off. From what I've seen of the product for the warp, it is pretty much die (laser) cut and has all the the necessary orifices for the battery, camera, speaker, charger/usb tether, etc. And since it appears to be carbon fiber, it should do a reasonably good job of absorbing small shocks, bumps and what not.

    Eh?

    I don't see a skin absorbing anything. Regardless of quality.

    Abrasions yes, shocks and bumps no.

    I'm 99% sure that it is only vinyl that looks like carbon fiber.
