I bought the full setup (front & back) and I think I did a pretty good job; only it strectched using the tool to ensure no bubbles. Its a sticky sensation of a screen protector - something I'm not liking as for gaming and repeated & rapid sliding will not be useful or trackable using it. Also it over stayed the bottom edge on the front and bottom top of the back of my IP4.

What I meant by "sticky" is that when putting into the IP4 Apple dock I really have to pull to pry it free - with a stick sound. Not good.

I purchased them from Power Support. Expensive for one but when ordering 2 a bit more cost effective compared with the Zagg and install.

The Apple stores seem to have Powersupport screen protectors for the 3G and 3GS only at the moment of nothing at all for the iPhone4. I picked up a screen protector from Telus today and I'll give it a go at installing it later.

It's a one time use code for up to 3 items, and expires on 30 September. If you do use it, please add a post, so that others will know it's gone.

I've had various cases and screen protectors for my 2 year old iPhone 3G, finally using Zagg and tore them off after 2 months. All, especially Zagg, make the phone look like awful very quickly.

I've been using a naked iPhone for a few months and it looks and feels better than when I used skins and cases.

Frankly, I think Apple designed a good case and a GREAT screen for their products and these 3rd party manufacturers just aren't improving on it.

I've used Power Support on my iPhone 3G for years as well as my wife's iPod touch. The best thing is that the incase slider covers I bought for both never interfered with the anti gloss protector. Kinda like a belt and suspenders type of thing.

I threw away my screen protector three years ago and use the perfectly good glass Apple provides. It works better, is far more sensitive and cleans with a simple wipe. Not a single scratch to be seen either. Screen protectors are a gimmick and an unnecessary one at that. Stop supporting cheap plastic makers and enjoy the real screen on your Touch or Phone.

+1; no screen protector on my iPhone for over a year and the glass is near flawless, including after several drops face-down on the floor. Don't share your iPhone with your loose change or keys in your pocket and it'll do just fine.

if I took that advice, my last iphone's screen would have been scratched to hell.

No way I'm going to chance that with an expensive phone.
