    Ghost Armor A+! Invisibileshield I dont know?

    I just got Ghost Armor today on my 3G Iphone. The guy at AT&T basically made me buy it cause he said it was the best accessory for the iphone. So of course I bought it and it looks awesome! Ive never heard of invisibileshield so i couldnt tell you the difference all i know is that my Ghost Armor is just perfect :D the only part of the phone not covered is the buttons and its totally clear (I showed my friends my phone and they were playing with it for like 10 minutes then said I should get a case for it so it doesnt scratch haha they didnt even notice anything was on it) and the ghost armor doesnt scratch (or so they said I havent tried and not planning to either :p) and it doesnt affect the touch and has a lifetime warranty. So I dont know how it gets much better than this. But anyway If that helps any that was my personal experience of the day lol sorry I couldnt be of more help good luck

    get the invisibleshield it is amazing and lets you enjoy the slimness of your iPhone without worrying about scratches!
    http://www.invisibleshield.com
    I have it on my iPod nano. No complaints at all. I've dropped it many times, still no scratches. I decided to take it off and only leave it on the screen and click wheel, came off with no residue.
    If anything DOES happen to it, there is a lifetime warranty.

    what about something like this - http://www.nulime.com/Iphone-Clear-Hard-Case/p225412 - it's acrylic? or the belkin acrylic case? i have one of these types of cases for my ds and i love it.
    does anyone have a "hard" case for their iphone? im always in a hurry and just toss my phone in my purse :/

    Sidewalk - problem with those is sometimes people reported 'stuff' finding it's way under there in time - trapped - and slowly grinds away at the phone's finish. That's my big worry with those.

    Just checked out the Ghost Armor website. Looks pretty impressive. I wish I could see what it looks like on a 3G iPhone. (to see how it fits the tapered edges)

    For those of you that have the Ghost Armor, does it leave smudges? Is it PERMANENT? (or can I take it off?) From the demo video, it looked like he was literally glueing it onto the iPhone and said it needed to be blow-dried and cannot be powered on for 1 hour after application. That doesn't sound like a temporary skin. (and probably negates the Apple warrenty if I ever need to take my phone in for return/repair, no?)

    Challenge

    See the challenge above from Phil A. youtube contributors?

    I wonder if the Ghost Armour can deal with:

    1. An axe attack
    2. Sulphuric acid
    3. Nuclear strikes

    Now those would make good video (and might even stop the Windoze clones from moaning about the iPhone. Maybe not)

    Mind you, the lack of UK iPhones available might make this an unattractive idea. Just order one from O2 and, well, wait...

    BTW for you 'pikeys' out there - if you are too tight to buy a decent case, just wrap your phone in several layers of Sellotape, or a carrier bag. Much cheaper.

    But with those films you have to use liquied which, in my oppinion just isnt right.. Electronics mixed with water --> Bad combo

    Ah - It's ok. You just do it over absorbant microfiber or something that won't lose lint/fibers or have your cloth ready when you push the water out. I just did my macbook air and there was water everywhere but it was ok. I even did around the keyboard, etc. Thousands put these things on their devices.

    So you're saying that the Ghost Shield is PERMANANT?

    Still want to know if it smudges too.
