    Default invisibleSHIELD for the iphone.
    What do you think of the invisibleshield for the iphone, do you think it is worth getting one?
    Thanks

    yup. The last thing you want is a cracked screen. Besides its not all that much of a pain in the *** when you considering how much it bumps around, and the possiblility of scratches. 3 people i know with a cracked/ scratched screen.

    Get it... you won't regret it.

    P.S. If your in Canada (i am) and the phone is not here yet. Then its an investment.

    Mine is amazing. Just put the back on today. Deciding if i want to use the screen or not. I've had one on my ipod for a year now, works perfectly, plus the guarantee for life.

    OK, after using it, i put the front on today. Spectacular. But also took off the back. Just ended up not liking it.

    Hi, i have used the invisible shield for all my phones so far and it is by far the best protection around. I have the full body shield and it is well worth the money, it is the first thing you should buy when you get an expensive phone.

    Default Dirt!
    I'll agree with the degree of protection it gives, and how it practically looks invisible, but it collects dirt on the edges of the film and it looks worse with the dirt built up. I contacted the company if theres a quick cleaning solution, and waiting for response.

    I picked up an invisibleSHIELD at Macworld. When I applied the screen cover it was not wide enough to cover the entire screen glass by about 1mm on the sides. The sticker is slightly bumpy and sticky and makes swiping your finger across the screen when scrolling or surfing difficult. The coating also had vertical lines on it that were visible when using the screen. I sent it back and got a refund (still waiting for the check to show up).

    I've now gone to BodyGuardz and I'm much happier with it. The coating is much better. It was easier to install, the back cover it designed much better (the invisibleSHIELD requires you stick on these little dots and crap to cover the entire thing which the BodyGuardz does not), and it's not sticky/tacky like the invisibleSHIELD. The squeegee included with the BodyGuardz works better for installation and they include 2x as much of the installation fluid. I'd recommend the BodyGuardz.

    I actually liked that it was tacky. I often rest it on my pants and without the screen protector it would slide off my pants all the time.

    Mine had this problem too but it went away for some reason. I don't get why.

    I hated the stupid little dots thing as well. I got a very large bottle of the installation fluid but I think its just water. I mean it says its not harmful to eyes, to the skin, or if swallowed.

    I think I may give the BodyGaurdz a try if what you say about the back is accurate.

    in my opinion u should look into bodyguardz

    bodyguardz.com

    i got one from there and they work very nicely and they even include vids on how to install it... look into it you wont regret it

    Anyone that says Bodyguardz is better has never done a side by side comparison. The invisible shield protects your device a million times better than bodyguardz. Bodyguardz is a weak plastic compared to invisible shield.

    And for the people who said bumps? toughness to scroll? C'mon please give me a break. First of all, the invisible shield has absolutely NO bumps. Its as smooth as the normal glass. (yes at a far, and I mean FAR angle the screen does appear blurry, but who cares when your eyes will be right in front of it)
    And for the "toughness of scrolling"? OMG its practically the same as glass. Yes a little grippier but as far as being TOUGH to scroll or swipe your finger? No way

    Go with INVISIBLE SHIELD and I promise you wont be disappointed.

    i bought the full body shield the other day. but i also have a contour isee like this
    would my iphone still fit into the dock and my hard case with the invisibleshield on?

  18. #16

  19. #17
    Im not sure i have two cases one similar like that one and it doesnt fit i also have teh agent 18 one and does not fit but once you get the full body protection you dont need a case

    I highly recommend you guys get the invisible shield front cover and the incase iphone hard case or agent 18.You will not regret it!

    The Invisible Shield $14.95 Front Screen Protection
    -might not cover the whole sides by 1mm, but it allows incase's / agent18's case to comfortably slid on and fix that issue.
    -the invisible shield's surface might be alittle bumpy looking but when u turn ur iphone on you won't even notice it.
    -It is scratchproof beyond what I first believed but I've tested it with my eyes and a knife and this thing does not scratch!

    The incase slider case $34.95 or agent eco18 $29.99 Overall Protection from drops
    -must buy, it provides a way to protect your investment by thick plastic. I've dropped my phone a couple of times by accident and because of these cases there was no scratches around. Unlike cheap cases the case didn't fall apart or crack.
    -the incase case also has a slider bottom which can easily be detatched to slip on the charger docker.
    -the agent 18 is cheaper but you don't get this slide out feature but you can still charge it the traditional case.

    I always get invisible skin from mainly BestSkinsEver (sometimes InvisibleShield if they have 50% off specials) for any of my electronics. Definitely worth the price if you like keeping your gadgets in pristine condition!
