BSE are good, but installation is somewhat not for a newbie, spent over 1 hour installing and still not happy with my results. Its a strong durable skin, but my mistake for playing with and adjusting and adjusting while soap dried.

I have the crystal film set from the Apple Store. DEFINITLY reccomend it, don't even notice its there and doesn't lose style or functionality.

Just wondering, is there actually any advantage of a screen protector? I mean, the iPhone screen is near invincible to scratches... and screen protectors can't pretect it from impact anyway. A cheap screen protector would probably scratch more easily than the iphone screen itself. The only thing I can think off is protecting it from spills but besides that I can't think of anything else...
By the way, I tested the screen myself by running a craft knife blade down the screen and it didn't scratch in any way... (just to see if the claims are true )

You can't go wrong with it. Sure, you could buy a product for less, but why risk it when you know you can pay a few extra bucks and be protected for life? Not to mention, a product that protects military helicopter blades, shoot, if they're available to me, then of course I want it!
I have an Invisible Shield for every gadget I own. It's perfect on the iPhone. Sure, it takes a bit of patience to do the edges, but the end result will keep you very happy. I don't have to be scared to disinfect the item. I don't want something that's on a table to be on my face the next minute if you know what I mean.
Plus, the customer support that Invisible Shield is outstanding. When I needed a replacement for my iPod, I called them up and said I needed a new one, no questions asked and in a couple of days I got my new shield.
Why settle for something that's lesser?

For those who had the BSE (best skin ever) or BG (body guardz) or IS (invisible shields from shield zone), can you please take a picture of one of the corners? I am interested in knowing which product wraps around the corners well and also, which one covers the easily scratched chrome trim? Thanks!

I just installed the BSE total body skin. The corners were a pain to work with but eventually it sticked perfect. My only complain is, the iphone is now sticky when I tried to slide it in the dock.

Where can you get the invisible shield cheapest? eBay? or do you recommend direct...

Does anyone know how long it takes for the microbubbles to disappear ? I just recently helped apply one on a friend's iPhone and it's been almost three days now and there are still microbubbles. I'm beginning to worry that theyre not going to dry off. Mind you, it looks a lot better now compared to two days ago when the microbubbles were really really really noticeable. Has anyone had a problem with the microbubbles not disappearing at all ?
This is the closest picture I can find online because I'm not able to take a picture of the iPhone:
It's the same microbubbles on there that's on the iPhone. Only difference is it's not as bad and as noticeable as that one on the iPod in the picture.

Invisible shield is my personal choice.

I have BodyGuardz... it was already on there when I bought the phone from this guy. So far so good. I've had it for about 4 months now. Who knows how long it's really been on there.
I just now start noticing dirt particles on the corners, but I keep my phone in my pocket a lot, so that might just be me.
I love the texture of it, has a good grip to it.
Also, a couple of days ago I noticed a chip on the screen. I don't know how I did it but I was surprised to see it. It's small but noticeable. I also notice the screen gets a lot dirtier now. Maybe these things just wear down over time.
Anyways, I plan to purchase a new set soon. Just my 2 cents.

I used to always have that problem when installing the bse or i.s. shields. Now I apply the spray more liberally and I am able to apply the shield with zero bubbles. But I don't wait two days, I apply the spray, then skin, and then squegee the bubbles out and in 2-5 mins. there are no bubbles on the screen, none at all. It took me many tries to get the technique but now the shields go on with zero bubbles everytime.

Actually, Duke... the bubbles are completely gone. I've found that the more solution I use to install, the longer it takes for the bubbles to disappear.
I installed a BSE skin on my little sister's Nintendo DS Lite and used solution as sparingly as possible and there were no microbubbles at all. Whatever bubbles were there were gone in a day. So less solution equals less bubbles.
Not to mention that BSE has really great customer service. My little sister installed the top part of the DS skin incorrectly and asked them if they have warranty (which they don't for user installation errors). However, they sent me a complimentary package right away in the mail. Cant get any better than that!
Also, I'd like to point out that I was using a Bodyguardz full body skin on mine and I had to take out the back skin so it would go into my new Casemate Signature Leather Case as smoothly as possible (the skin added a bit of bulk so I had to get rid of it). The un-install went fine but it DID take out a bit of the white engraving on the back (where it says "iPhone" and the serial number etc) and it's now really really smooth compared to being able to "feel" the engraving on the back of the phone. However, it is still clearly visible and readable. Also, as soon as I was taking out the skin, it had a bit of a black tint color on it (probably because I was using a black silicone case and the color probably rubbed off of it).

I had the IS on my Blackberry before I got my iPhone and loved it. I bought the iPod touch before I decided I wanted an iPhone and when I installed on there, the raised bezel around the screen formed a pocket that held a lot of air bubbles. I ended up taking off the screen cover and leaving the back on. I'm pretty sure it'll fit better on the phone since there's no surface change between the chrome bezel and the screen. Anybody have this problem?

Just for clarity the lifetime warranty for the Invisibleshield is only if the shield fails. Ruin it during application or during removal and you dont get another.
