Just got off the phone with Power Support USA regarding their iPhone 4 screen protectors. He said Apple will not stock Power Support nor any iPhone 4 screen protectors. Just a heads up for people waiting to get one in store.

Wasn't this news a couple months ago? That Apple decided to stop selling screen protectors in stores because that made everyone think the display gets scratched easily.

Too bad we can't all be senior Apple execs. No need for screen protectors when you can just get your iPhone replaced anytime. :cool:

Do you mean APPLE STORES or any store? I presume the former. The title of your post suggests the latter - all stores. There's a big difference.

So where can we buy them now? Does Best Buy sell the PS protectors or do they have to be ordered online now?

That's a shame...these things are great and should be available at Apple stores. The 3GS ones sold very well...

PS may be compensating the loss in business from not being sold in apple stores by raising shipping/handling fees. Just a thought.

It really cannot help their business now that Apple is shutting them out like this. So I guess this makes sense

They have every right to stock whatever the hell they want in their stores. :rolleyes:

Want one? Buy it online.
It's dumb. The screen protectors used to be the number one selling accessory on the online store and I'd imagine they were the same in-store. But Apple decides to remove the number one selling accessory because they think we don't need it- not because they sold poorly. That deserves to have :rolleyes: at.

What is wrong with PS's sales/marketing dept... they should be working with walmart, best buy, radioshack... etc by now. Someone needs to fix their business model... not that I'm an expert, but isn't this common sense?
