Do screen protectors remove the oleophobic coating if you take them off?

    If you apply a screen protector to the iphone screen then later decide to take it off can it remove abit of the oleophobic coating? If not then does the oleophobic coating wear off over time with normal use?

    It wear off over a very long period of time, just a guess. But no, protectors do not rip it off.

    I've never heard of it happening and taken off quite a few. Since most people cover it up anyway I guess it doesn't matter. :D

    The oleophobic coating wore off of my 3Gs in about five months of normal to heavy use.
