    Hey guys,

    I just wasted $40 trying to apply case mate's anti-glare film screens to my iphone 4. None of them worked -- Some of the edges will never completely set down.

    I've applied power support's anti-glare film to my ipod touch 2g before, and the application was relatively easy, and it was completely bubble free.

    I don't want to become OCD about fingerprints, and I use my gear in the sun: so I'm avoiding crystal finishes or the like.

    Any recs? Or should I just wait on PS again...

    I recommend against getting any screen protector like that. I bought the oleophobic model from SGP. It has excellent clarity and the cut is terrific; overall it's a very high-quality product. However, it really is a fingerprint magnet and even a little bit of oil on the screen can make text appear to shimmer. I bought the anti-glare iPhone 4 screen protector from Power Support which I'm hoping performs much better in this regard.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I've also tried the Oleophobic protector, which you've mentioned.
    I agree, it is a very good product -- It went on without any bubbles, and my girlfriend could not tell that I had anything on (Thinking I had applied an IS, she even held the phone at an angle, looking for Zagg's trademark orange skin peeling.)

    But it really is a fingerprint magnet. I couldn't grip the phone without leaving fingerprints all over the screen. :(
    Which is why I'm looking for a matte-type finish.

    The one from AT&T in Anti Glare is not a fingerprint magnet. (and Im pretty OCD about my phone)

    I think the ATT one is made by case mate. I tried 4 times and couldn't get a good application (Air bubbles would form around the cut out for the front-facing camera and the far edges, and they won't go away) . Where/how did the salesperson apply it?

    Yes it says Case Mate on the back. He just cleaned my screen then lined it up then applied. Nothing special really! Not saying I could of done it tho!
