    Hell yes. I love the look on my friends' faces when I take my keys out and start going at the screen and back side with it.

    I will definitely without a doubt get the Invisible Shield for my iPhone 4. It comes with a lifetime free replacement warranty, too.

    I don't really like ZAGG skins they turn yellow on me everytime. I went with a power support on my 3G after the ZAGG kept yellowing and it seemed to work better.

    Although I'm glad the iPhone 4 is flat on front and back it should make putting the skin on a lot easier. The rounded backs on the 3G 3Gs are a nightmare to put the skin on.

    Unless you constantly carry diamonds around in your pocket, I don't think Invisible shields are necessary with the iPhone 4.

    In my opinion Zagg is really durable and everything but i really dont like the feeling it has on the touch screen :S and it turns yellow for some reason after a while.

    I really want the iSkin for the iphone 4 and the ipad , i love there products and quality ;)


    Can't wait for em .

    Yeah it has an orange peel texture. Bodygaurdz are smoother and don't yellow either.

    I use the Zagg invisible shield on my macbook and it does get pretty gross after a while. Luckily they have a lifetime guarantee and you can get a replacement without too much hassle. Definitely worth it if you ask me. Personally I'd probably just use the Invisible shield on the back of the iPhone 4 and a powersupport for the front since I like the texture and quality a lot better.

    They are great for the peace of mind. I guess I am not careful enough, but each iPhone I've owned I get hairline scratches on the screen (only visible in sunlight).

    They are not perfect, though. I ordered one one time and put it on. After watching all the key test videos, I was impressed, so I decided to test it out myself with my fingernail - result = scratch all the way across my screen. And on the 3G/3GS the back cover is nearly impossible to put on correctly.

    They offer a service (I think it is like $10 + the price of the shield itself) for professional installation. You just ship them your phone and they'll get it back to you pretty quick and it'll be perfect. I'm not sure if it is listed on their site or not, you might have to ask about it.

    Nice! I got the 50% off coupon!

    I've had two of these before for the iPhone 3G and the didn't conform to the body well at all. The second time, is was installed by the pro at the mall, and it looked like ass within a few weeks. This, however, is flat! I'll try it! :p

    I like Power Support skins better. They never seem to yellow...are easy to apply...are virtually indetectable...I've had them on my original iPhone 1st gen...iPhone 3G and my iPod Touch 3rd gen...

    I like the ZAGG skins, but the edges do tend to peel over time. I have used their lifetime warranty a couple of times, all without a hitch.

    I just got my 50% coupon, so I might take advantage of it.

    Perhaps if I get an Apple bumper case and the skin's edges go underneath, it might prevent the edges from peeling up.

    I think I will be getting one from bestskinsever. These skins will last two years no problem, and as long as you dont suck at putting them on you shouldnt ever use the lifetime warrenty....and I dont feel like paying 3x as much

    Had it on my last iPhone since day 1 and it was awesome

    I'll wait for FullBodyFilms as they got the highest rating by iLounge.

    I heard many negative things about the Zagg IS. I highly recommend the clear-coat skin because it is not super sticky like other skins, does not get an orange peel affect over time like the Zagg IS and won't discolor over time. The clear-coat skin holds up very well.

    http://www.clear-coat.com/home.php

    There was a Zagg IS kiosk at my local mall, right across from the Apple store. It was shut down about 3-4 months ago and taken over by clear-coat. clear-coat also has a kiosk upstairs at the mall. I heard that Zagg was having production problems and quality control issues with the IS, that's why they shut down. Well, they are back again. I guess they fixed the problems. We shall see. I vote for clear-coat! Great product. Their telephone and email customer service could be better though. Not the best response times. Luckily there is a clear-coat kiosk really close to my home.

    Not that I'm aware of. The material is actually pretty thick and it can have these weird lines in it that against the screen, might cause a small spectrum-like effect that looks like a crack, but other than that it wasn't bad when I had it on my old iPhone. Now the yellowing edges and peeling corners were a different matter :p

    I am looking at the Power Support skin applied to my 2007-vintage 1st generation iPhone...applied when I first got it...and it STILL looks great.
