    I was thinking about getting some sort of full phone screen protectors and I called BB and asked if they had a kiosk that installed the screen protector shields for you and they said all they did have an invisible shield kiosk where they would "install" it for you in under 20 minutes... but they only have covers for the front screen...

    I have a few questions before i consider buying one though.

    Which of the two is least noticeable, and which would you prefer.

    Also, How hard are they to install of you're doing it yourself?

    I've messed up a couple. I wouldn't be surprised that it took them two or three tries to apply your screen protector correctly. The issue I have faced is how the screen protector seems to not stick properly on one corner. It's always one corner. And after constantly sticking it in my pocket and taking it out it will eventually fall off.

    Did you have an invisible shield or ghost armor?

    I have the option of getting a full cover invisible shield installed for me at BB (when they get more in stock) or i can install my own Ghost armor (for cheaper) if i order it online...

    what do you think i should do?

    (i'm going to end up putting my phone in a bumper [along with the screen protectors] as soon as more colors are released)

    I've used them both. The biggest difference is Ghost Armor is much more clear and translucent than Invisible Shield. They're both almost equal, but I personally like Ghost Armor better than Invisible Shield. I've tried them both!

    Ghost Armor is awesome

    Walked right out of the Apple store and into the waiting arms of Ghost Armor (their kiosk was right outside). I've tried InvisibleShield before and found the orange peel effect much worse than Ghost Armor's, so I decided to give them a shot.

    I watched the GA rep install one on someone else's phone and felt she did a respectable job. I had her install mine (both front and back) and she did beautiful work. It looks fantastic. This protection, coupled with the bumper, is all the protection I'm going to get for my iPhone.

    P.S. I hate installing this stuff on my own. I've tried it twice over the past 4 years, and I will have the reps do it from now on. It's so much easier. If they screw it up, you get a fresh shield right there on the spot.

    I put an invisible shield full body protection dry install on my i4, and I love it. The installation instructions for the dry install were excellent, and I can't even tell there's a protector on the front of the phone. The back protector is more of a matte look that gives me confidence I can toss it on a table and not worry about blemishes/scratches.

    I bought mine from an AT&T kiosk. They were sold out pretty much everywhere I called.

    Btw: How easy is it to post photos in these forums? I can take some pics with my gf's i4. Of course we both got one... FaceTime!

    I totally botched putting on the Invisible Shield. Wasted $20, and it wasn't even full body! lol but just saw the Full Body version at Best Buy yesterday. I'm considering giving it another shot when I get my phone's screen taken care of.

    How did you waste $20? You can remove and reinstall.
