    Just received my Iphone4 Full Body Shield kit and the front screen shield has the home button cut out, the ear speaker cut out but no front camera cut out. Anyone else have this issue or am I the only lucky one?:confused:

    There is no need as the front camera is under the glass.

    not sure why anybody would want to use a screen protector and hinder the look of the retina display. i have never owned a screen protector and have never had a scratch. take a note from apple considering they banned screen protectors from their stores... you don't need them!

    I noticed this also. I emailed Zagg and was told that the ear piece speaker hole/ slit is larger and more elongated which will leave the camera exposed. If you hold the shield over your current iphone you'll notice what I'm talking about.

    I heard the cutout extends far enough to cover the camera as well as the speaker. Instead of making 2 separate cut outs with a flimsy piece in the middle, they just made one big cutout. Not sure how true this is or not though.

    Edit: beat me to it Scotty

    so........because apple does not sell them, it means we don't need a screen protector?

    Apple doesn't sell them because they got tired of warranty/return issues with faulty installs.

    Our 3 iPhones here in this household have all hit the bricks so many times I've lost count. Good cases and screen protectors have been the key to selling every generation on eBay for more than I pay for the next gen.

    You're going to be sick the first time you scratch that glass on the new one.

    Apple sells screen protectors on their website, just saw some for a 3G/3Gs at the store today.

    This is the picture of the InvisibleShield for iPhone 4. Even here, you can tell that the speaker cutout is longer than the speaker itself.

    The packaging picture is obviously before they changed the cut. I noticed that a day after receiving mine. The pictures on their website show what the final cut ending up being.

    Consider yourself lucky. Many others including myself have scratches on the screen. Just because you've never had an accident doesn't mean you don't need a seatbelt.

    Not everyone takes such bad care of their phones that they drop them so many times they lose count.

    You'd be correct. Was I just supposed to guess that you did and thus deserve the roll eye emoticon?

    Way to be condescending. From my experience, cases harm my phone more than using me it without one.
