    How do I take a screen protector OFF of the iPhone. its really starting to bugg me and I don't know if its actually the glass on the phone or the protector(I didn't buy it from Apple or AT&T, my cousin gave it to me, and I don't know if he had a screen protector on it)

    so 1) can I check if there's a screen protector or not
    2)if there is, how do I take it off?

    Get a chisel and carefully tap with hammer around the edge of the screen to lift it out.

    Seriously.. Most are just a thin plastic film that's sticky. Look for the edge of it and use your fingernail to lift (like the end of sellotape on its roll).

    You should be able to tell though by the feel of the screen on your finger.

    If it's one of the Power Support covers, take a piece of Scotch tape, fold it so it's all sticky, then use it to pry the cover off (there's no adhesive). If it's a sticky one, good luck to ya.
