    It pisses me off that none of them actually fit. I have tried several kinds...the cheap ones and the expensive ones. They are all a little too wide, a little too long or doesn't line up. I waste far more than I can get on the phone. A pack of six...I ruin 3.


    K, i'm done

    Don't use one. The phone doesn't need it anyway unless you're going to be juggling chainsaws next to it or something.

    +1 for the Power Support protectors.

    I used to use a DLO crystal protector. Nothing was wrong with it, but when I switched to the Power Support crystal one, the difference was night and day.

    I don't use a screen protector anymore, but if I went back to them it'd definitely be power support.

    They have a website and the screen protectors are available at the Apple store as well. $14.99 for two but well worth the price. Trust me. They fit perfectly as well. I bought some for my 3GS and 3G iPhones as well as my 2G phones in the last two weeks. They fit perfectly on all three phones.

    power support is definately superior. I tried a cheap one from amazon and while it fit and looked good it scratched very easily. The power support is scratch resistant and still looks new after 2 months. I had to transfer it 4 times already because my phone keeps getting replaced and it still looks perfect.

    Also if you buy screen protectors at the apple store, just ask them if they'll put them on for you. They did mine both times and it looks flawless :)

    I have tried an antiglare one from BestBuy. Cost me like 16 bucks. Had a texture to it, but it make the screen look funny. I started buying the 6-pack case-mate ones and they are clear. Looks like the actual screen. Nice and bright.

    power support crystal on mine...its not on perfectly, little off around the home button and the ear speaker. However, NOT 1 bubble at all...no dust no dirt, nothing, looks perfect. Cant even notice its on till you look at the home button and see a tiny tiny amount of the protector on the edge of the home button.

    Since the Power Support screen protectors stay on the phone due to static and not adhesive, I've found that I can actually use my two thumbs to move/realign it:) I tried doing this one day after I pulled my iPhone out of my back pocket (probably sat on it for a bit) and noticed that it had moved.

    They fit perfectly btw.

    +1! Im starting to feel like a fool spending so much cash on these protectors when in the end, this screen wont scratch...UNLESS like you said, you are juggling it with chain saws.
