    Recommendation? Invisible Shield full body. It's only $30 at AT&T I think, but you get a lifetime warranty. Definitely good if you wear earrings, you don't have to worry about marring the front or back, or if you like naked devices.

    I have that, you can easily see fingerprints and it kinda downgrades retina display. I took mine off and going screen protector less for the last 3 months!

    Screen portectors are worthless, as are cases.

    cases are definitely not worthless. I'll like to have a case on for that time when I flub and drop my phone. some protection is better than none.

    I agree, they ruin the feel of the touch screen. I had one on one of my old WinMo phones, but have never put one on any of my iPhones. I think the screen protector disease is called OCDism.

    (shrugs) and the times I've dropped my phone with no damage still wouldn't persuade me to cover it up. Seriously, what's the point of buying something as elegant as the if you're just going to put layer over layer on top of it so you can't use it like it's designed to be?

    The point is for people who cant hold on too a phone (my girlfriend lol)

    Only reason I have a case on mine is because it says SF GIANTS WS CHAMPS

    No screen protector though and there are some scratches but only seen in sunlight.

    I se a screen protector for thing, I had a 3Gs where the olephobic coating wore off. I want to avoid that issue. Plus for people who put their phones in their pockets, it add a level of protection from keys and coins.

    I've read enough reports of the glass getting scratched to embrace the notion of a screen protector.

    Some people don't use them, others do. Its all a personal preference.

    LOL until you scratch the "Hard to scratch" glass the first day you have the Iphone ( My 3g)
    Ever since I have a Case and Screen protector and cannot imagine without one.

    My wife throws her phone in the purse and it does get scratched so she has one

    Iphone4 without bumper? Hmm

    I have a sleek case easy to take out of

    I feel little difference between the protector and glass its good, no bubbles

    $0.99 from Ebay

    Up to you some claim never ever a scratch or a nick, yet so many phones resold on ebay have them, must be a number that do then.
