ATT iphone 5 already have screen protector

Today I got the screen protector from Ebay and want to put it on the iphone 5. But I failed and then throw away the screen protector. But suddenly, I found the iphone 5 already have the screen protector prefectly installed. WTF?? Anyone happens to this situation?

But I have it through updating the phone on ATT premier. And it comes with the whole stuff. The order is noted as new for 199.99. I need to contact ATT to make sure about it.

The OP can't be stupid enough to mistake the temporary film as the screen protector, but you never know with members these days.

Does the screen protector have cutouts for the homebutton & speaker

Yes. It is not the temporary film. When I tear the temporary film and try to put my screen protector, I found it already has the screen protector. I checked the iphone, no sign of wear. Actually the screen protector is installed very well. But feel it is weired.

Well that is infact very distressing. Was the box sealed/wrapped in retail? I'm not sure whether to call Apple or AT&T :s

Haven't read the whole thread yet but I would bet this is the case.

The box is sealed when I got it from UPS. It should be non open.

My i5 came inside a hello kitty case.
Sealed up and everything
How did that happen?

Are you sure its not the screen protector you applied? They have 2 protective layers one on each side. Are you sure you didn't just peel off the protective revealing the actual screen protector
