    I've been using the Zagg dry-install screen protector set on my iPhone 4 since July, and paired with a bumper it's been a real nice setup. However after recently playing with a un-protected screen I've realized that I've completely forgotten how amazing the screen feels.

    I ordered some stuff from SW-box.com recently (their black/transparent apple bumper replica is awesome!), and decided to give their carbon fiber sticker set a try. Here are the results!

    For anyone interested, I paid $2.30 for this set from swbox.com

    does it have a tekture feel to it or is it just a smooth carbon look? how much was the shipping also? do you feel like it is a sold decal or do you find yourself trying to be careful not to catch it when puting you pocket and such?

    It has a texture feel to it, and so far has been very solidly affixed to the phone. I've been taking it in and out of my pocket for the last couple days with no issues.

    I ordered this set along with two bumpers and I believe shipping was around $4, maybe less.

    Also, I maybe lose 1 bar of signal when I give it a good grip at the base of the phone.

    Depends on where you live. I'm in Washington, DC and the two bumpers I ordered took almost 5 weeks to get to me. People in the Midwest got theirs faster.

    I'm in Arizona now and their cheap no-tracking shipping took less than two weeks. I placed a larger order later and opted for premium fedex shipping which took less than a week.

    What lock screen are you using? That is a great look with the carbon fiber skin. Also do you know if you can order the skin without the apple logo?

    The lockscreen is REDLOCKSCREEN: http://www.macthemes.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16805703

    The skin came with the apple logo covered, so I suppose you could opt to not peel it off when applying. This skin is so awesome I've ordered 2 more as backups, as well as one of the faux-leather ones.
