    Default Otterbox Defender Screen...

    Does anyone use a Defender with the screen shield removed? If so, how do you like it?

    Yep! I actually like it. You can go either "naked" with the screen, which looks GREAT, or you can add your own screen protector that can be easily swapped out if it gets scratched. I have done this with almost all my OBD when the built in screen protector gets scratched.

    I Was considering removing the protector because crap always gets under it then I have to break the case down to clean it. That will ultimately lead to a nice, loose fitting silicone skin and I definitely don't want that.

    Shoot...I don't have any more clear screen protectors. Guess I gotta use an anti glare protector until I can get to Verizon tomorrow.

    I was concerned about doing that bc I didn't want the hard plastic to scratch. Did it leave a smooth plastic rim?

    Yes, it's smooth. There's actually a slight gap so you don't have to worry about it scratching the screen. I have another screen protector on the phone itself.

    Does anyone know from experience if the otterboxes will arrive in time the phone arrives?

    Default Otterbox Defender Screen...

    So did anyone create some form of gasket to keep debris from getting in through the gap created by removing the built in screen protector?
