    Ordered my first iPhone on Tuesday and am waiting for it to come into the att store.

    Since this is my first iPhone I need some advice as to how to protect it. Looking for some advice on skins and/or screen protectors.

    I go with Zagg's Invisible Shield because they are a local company and they have a killer no questions asked lifetime warranty.

    Yeah, and you get a pretty rainbow effect with the plastic "shield".

    I'm not a fan of invisible shield. I haven't tried any of the alternatives though. But my experience with invisishiled just reinforced my thoughts that it was a lot like old people who put plastic over their furniture.

    For my screen, I use a PowerSupport anti-glare film - not so much to protect the glass, but because it doesn't show fingerprints and it makes the screen easier to view on the train.

    For the back, I tried InvisibleShield as I've been using it on every iPod I've owned since my 3G 20GB, and I like the peace of mind it gives. However, the I.S. for the iPhone 3G is a NIGHTMARE to apply. I went through two just trying to get it right (and don't forget, I've had LOTS of practice over the years) but I ended up ripping them both off in frustration. YMMV. ;)
