    I tried out the body glove and I just hated it. Bulky and makes the slide out keyboard pointless because i can't hit the top row of buttons easily because of my big fingers. Also had a hard time sliding it out.
    Thinking of getting the ZAGG invisible shield.
    What's you all's favorites?
    BTW, for recommendations, im not interested in clip cases nor pocket pouches.

    Naked. I used to be so paranoid with my phones until I came to the revelation that I'm only going to have it for a year. I use my annual upgrade every year.

    I tried the Zagg. Unfortunately they don't use the application spray anymore and instead give you this black sponge soaked with some sort of liquid. My problem is that the black sponge left little pieces of black sponge on the film protector and as hard as I tried I couldn't get it all off. I emailed Zagg this last weekend after attempting the install and I finally heard from them today. They state, and I quote:

    "I'm sorry to hear that your installation didn't go well. We no longer use the SHIELDspray application process because many times when we would ship the SHIELDspray with orders, they would leak and destroy the products that we were sending. I do apologize. In general, our lifetime replacement guarantee only covers normal wear-and-tear issues, such as scratching and peeling, and typically does not cover installation difficulties, however, I am willing to extend a one-time courtesy replacement for you. Also, as the sponge did cause some of the installation trouble, I would be willing to waive the normal shipping and handling fee that we would charge for the warranty requests.
    To process your replacement request you will be asked to provide a credit or debit card. Your card will be pre-authorized for the retail value of the product you are replacing. You will have 25 days to return your original product. When we receive the original product back, the pre-authorized charge on your credit or debit card will be removed. Your card will be charged in full if the original product is not returned within 25 days."

    Oh Thank You, Thank You Zagg for being so understanding. Its not an installation problem. Its a manufacturers defect in your stupid little sponge. Sounds as if they are doing me a GREAT favor. You decide if this is a company and product you want to spend $25 on. This one is going back and I don't want a replacement. The product doesn't properly cover and protect the phone anyway.

    1) The ZAGG replacement procedure is tedious. I understand why they must go through the returning of the original product and what not, but it's awfully laborious.
    2) As of this week, my ZAGG is going back to them. The thin strips of whatever that "supposed" to cover the sides of the phone are ridiculous. They didn't even ship a strip that goes around the edge that sticks out the most! And because these strips have pointed corners, they'll snag and roll when you put your phone in your pocket. Speaking to ZAGG, they said I have to let the phone "cure" for 12-24 hours, with it OFF. I let it cure for 10 hours, so my bad right? Nah, their bad... it's going back.
    3) I don't like the "orange peel" texture of the plastic. Apparently, according to them, it's the "nanotechnology" of the plastic. The peel texture is not great. And your finger doesn't exactly "glide" over the plastic. It's rather sticky.

    If you're going to buy it, buy the face shield. The full body is worthless.

    Your right about the full body coverage. I'm not sure why Zagg would create a product that doesn't protect the areas of the phone that protrude out the most and would be damaged in an accident. The edges of the thin strips on the sides are starting to peel on mine also. I requested a return authorization number but haven't heard back from Zagg yet.

    I usually buy several types and end up using none of them. Mine is naked in a $5.97 horizontal belt case I bought on eBay.

    Yep i agree on the body glove although it protected nice, it sucked to put it in my pocket and it also tore my droid caseing up while putting it on one day. Verizon store was nice enough to take it back and refund my money and give me another droid.
