    I have a SGP Crystal clear screen protector installed on my iP4. It's been on my phone since last March. So my question is should I go ahead and install a new one or is it ok to leave them on for long periods of time?

    It's fine to leave it on as long as you want.

    Replace it when it comes off or it begins to peel or if it has sustained too many scratches. There's no time limit and does not damage the screen at all.

    You can leave them on as long as you want, just replace as needed.

    Ok thanks for the replies! I'm happy with the install and there are no signs of peeling. There is just a few small scratches but nothing to bad. Looks like I'll be leaving it on awhile longer.

    Thanks again!!

    If you're happy with it just leave it on. I also have an SGP screen protector and I won't replace it for long time because it's so perfect.

    I've used screen protectors on all of my iphones since my first 3g and I've replaced it when it had too many scratches or when I've had to replace it at the Genius Bar.

    That's good feedback that it has lasted so long. I love the quality of the SGP ultra crystal after replacing the SGP ultra optics (anti-glare) which I didn't care for and thought it actually showed more fingerprints than the ultra crystal.

    I've been really happy with the SGP screen protectors. You can hardly tell I have one on there. They are pretty easy to install and the one I have on there now is almost perfect.
