    I usually end up having to replace them about every 4-5 months. I'm guessing they are all the same (I usually go through BSE) are there any better choices out there?

    btw this is mostly for back of the phone skins, but I have noticed screen ones in the past peel just as fast.

    I would look into Dbrand and Slickwraps. Both decent brands. I believe Slickwraps makes a skin strictly for the back side of the iPhone as well. (I could be mistaken. )

    @SunnySingh, any preference/knowledge on either of these two brands with your iPhones?

    DBrand has excellent customer service but only issue is their selection is too limited. Last time I ordered from them it took a bit longer and I thought package got lost, they replied apologizing and sent me another package straight away no questions asked. I ended up receiving both the packages. If that's not quality service I don't know what is. From experience Ivr realized that aslong as you get the skin aligned seamlessly at the edges it can last a very long time. Btw most of these companies get their Skins from the same 3M supplier so I don't expect any difference in longevity. It all depends on how you applied it and your usage patterns.

    Dbrands looks like it isn't applied with liquid, I would rather have that option.

    as for Slickwraps, wow, expensive $20 for just the back when everyone else charges in the $10 range.

    I guess I wouldn't mind the fee if it lasted a long time..Can anyone comment on the longevity of these brands?
