I've almost always used a Power Support Anti-Glare on the screen because I like the smooth feeling it gives.. but lately I've been rocking the screen naked with the phone in an Incase Slider or Switcheasy Rebel..
Still can't talk myself into using no case for longer than 2-3 days.. just don't want to risk the back getting scratched.

Why do you guys do this to me? I've got an invisishield on mine and I hate it. It just ruins the appearance I think. I was debating taking it off, but talked myself into keeping it on after seeing so many people complain of scratches. Now this thread, and I want to take it off again.
Has anyone removed the invisishield from at 3gs? It doesn't damage the oleophobic coating, does it? That's my biggest fear. I'm debating taking it off and getting the powersupport shield everyone is always talking about instead.

No scraches, bumps, or brusies. A few smudges, but with the great oleophobic screen and a good wipe with my shirt...nothing. I've had mine a month after it came out...darn shipping and back order! I use a incase hard case and it's going strong. By far the best piece of technology I have...maybe second to my car.

I have had screen protectors on twice since I have had my 3GS (6/27) and end up taking them off after a few days. I love the feel of the screen as is. I had a Feather on it and now have a Batwing Candyshell, but the only scratch is a little one on the Apple logo that I think was caused by something getting under the Feather case. My 17yr old daughter has a 3GS too - she hates screen protectors and hers still looks great too.
If the darn thing was just a little more "grippy" by itself, I would not even use a case!

So I ordered the Power Support shield and decided to replace my Invisishield. I don't really care about the back, just want to keep the glass scratch-free.
So I took off the Invisishield when my PS shields came, and decided to rock it without a screen protector for a day to see how I liked it. It's a week later now, and the PS shields are still in the original box. Still rocking it case/protector free, no scratches, and loving it. The oleophobic coating is awesome, and just putting the phone in my pocket cleans it.
I'm SUPER careful with my phone, don't let anyone (except my wife) handle it. It's always in my pocket, with nothing else in the pocket with it. I've always been extremely careful with my stuff.
Still a possibility I might put the protector on, but I just love the beautiful screen without it.

after reading this i was convinced and took my screen protector [AKA oil collector] off.
5 minutes later i noticed a tiny scratch on the screen. and i mean TINY, it's in the very top right of the surface so not technically on the screen, and is only visible from the right angle. i wonder though if this actually happened while a screen protector was on as it is around the same spot i had a spec of... something under a screen protector for a while.
anyway since the iphone has proven to be pretty damn scratch resistant i was wondering if anyone knows what WILL scratch the screen?
there are of course diamonds but i hardly ever carry those around in my pockets anymore so it's not any issue... anything else we should avoid though?

So I was going naked until today. Noticed a scratch from the bezel down to the screen, but not on the screen. You can only see it in direct bright light, but that was enough for me. Thankfully the screen wasn't scratched. So I put on my anti-glare ps shield and I love it. It was SO easy to put on.
My phone did not spontaneously scratch though, it fell between the door and seat of my car last night. I think that's when it happened. Been super careful, but it got away from me there and cost me. No more chances.
