    Default question on invisible shield
    is it really good. i've seen videos on it but looks can be deceiving that's why i wanted to know if anyone here has it? and what do you think about it? does it really protect your phone from scratches?

    thanks

    Yes, I have the invisible Shield on my phone right now it's awesome doesnt scratch at all!...It definetly helps with the fingerprints they don't show up nearly as bad, it's a bit difficult to get on with the edges keep popping up but the trick is to wait until it starts to dry and they stay down nicely. The phone looks great with it on to you can really tell it's protected...it's worth the money in my opinion, hope that helps your decision

    its very good. I have abrasion trails in certain areas but only visible when the unit is off.
    The back protector was challenging and I gave up/
    The screen protector has a slight rubbery feel at first but after a week of use either it goes away or its not noticable.
    Its been on for 2.5 months and its not peeling at all.
    I agreee it is worth the$$$

    A little tip for easier installation....

    If any of you have any experience tinting windows, you know to wet the film with windex and apply.

    Works great with a shield for the phone too...wet just a little with windex, allows you to "slide" the shield into place without it getting stuck to fast, easy to wipe any air bubbles out....then take a blow-dryer and CAREFULLY dry it off (dont use high heat, or get the phone too hot).

    Im a InvisibleShield person.
    Specifically because it does its job very well.

    I dont worry anymore about where I leave the phone because I know it wont be scratched. Same goes with my gf. She just dumps the phone in her purse without an issue. Never has owning an iPhone been easier! :P

    The BestSkinEver, you need to make your own application liquid which is quite a pain.

    The spray bottle in the IS packaging does a brilliant job.

    the only complain i have about the invisible shield is the orange peel effect on the screen.
    I would go with bodyguardz.com case.

    You get 2 sets of shields with a lifetime warranty and a 30 day satisfaction policy. Check out the comparisons on youtube u can clearly see the orange peel effect.

    Actually I've had both Invisible Shield and Best Skins Ever, I would say that applying the actual skin of Best Skins Ever is 10x easier than that of the Invisible Shield. The best skins ever slides on your iPod. Invisible Shield sticks on contact. The solution isn't a pain. All you do is take a drop of soap and place it is a bowl of water. But anyways, congratulations on your new Invisible Shield.

    Do a google search for coupons.
    WhenI bought mine the IS site had 30% off coupons
    There were some found on google for
    10%
    15%
    20%

    Find the highest one and use only that one.
    If you try to add more than one coupon the IS checkout will revert to the lowest one.

    Ever since i Had my samsung Omnia, a girl dropped it and regardless of what shield you have on it, dropping it will leave a small dent. It wont scratch, but it WILL dent. Ever since, I've bought rubberized plastic cases and an invisible shield for my phones.

    I've had 3 blackberries, original iphone, samsung omnia, HTC Touch dual, and now i'm on my iphone 3g 16gb white! Love ittt!!!

    This is a great case, but the only thing is it took forever for me to apply. It took me like an hour to get it on right, but since then it has been great.

    i have the full body coverage for my iphone from invisible shield. the front screen protector got a small scratch and a small nick in it. the back piece started coming loose on the corners and it also started to turn yellow.

    i went to an invisible shield kiosk at the mall the other day and they said they would replce the back cover for $5.

    I'm off to work now but i will take pictures as soon as i get home.
