    this is exactly what i do, i went to the apple store just to check the covers that i liked, they had the one i wanted, Commuter LT, it cost $34 in the Apple store. went on eBay and a guy was selling all OtterBox products with full warranties from factory at $19.99, that is $15 less than the apple store, plus the eBay had free shipping.

    So I think the word "ban" is being used improperly. If I understand the original post correctly, Apple is simply ceasing selling any and all screen protectors at their retail stores. If my understanding is accurate, this does not equal a ban, just, as said, they will no longer sell these items. There are plenty of things Apple doesn't sell at their stores, but that doesn't mean Apple has banned them. That said, I do think that this is a pretty stupid move.

    Take a chill pill people. Who actually buys their screen protectors at the apple store anyway? Not me, the nearest apple store is over 50 miles away. I actually just bought a pack from the AT&T store last week and they're pretty nice.

    I don't even notice the screen protector on mines, but somebody said it makes them look ugly??? You must have the one that just covers the touchscreen and not the whole front of the iPhone/iPod "!!

    What's up with people that don't use any punctuation? Do they not understand how, or is it just pure laziness?

    How can I protect my iphone screen without them.
    Um,can't choose one bluetooth headphone between those two. One has longer Standby Time. Another one is cheaper and Wireless.
    I want to have a substantial one for daily call.

    A screen protector is an absolute must for the iPhone. I don't know about you, but I personally shelled out $600 for the 3G and the 3GS and I'll be damned if I leave open the possibility of a $300 device becoming scratched. I know a girl who has gone through over 10 iPhone because she keeps dropping them and they keep cracking but her parents keep buying her knew ones, some people actually work for the things they have and can't just leave the continued usability of these devices up in the air.

    They are not banning screen protectors, they are just not selling them in their store anymore. I don't really care because anything apple sells in over priced anyway.

    I'm confused by this article. It says, "all screen-protecting film products from all retail stores and the Apple Online Store."

    But then it goes on to say that it's for the Apple stores.

    So which is it? ALL stores, or just the Apple stores?
