I get the case mate or the ifrogs ones from the AT&T store. They are $9.99 you get 3 of them and they are the card plasticky type. No bubbles.
And I will tell you sweat will ruin the oleo phobic screen coating. Read this thread.

I tried a Zagg, for the second time, the other day. The first time was an EPIC FAIL and I swore I would never use one again...but...this time it went perfectly! I am really happy with it! I know the iP4 has the "Gorilla Glass" But I always protect my screens. Life is tough! You never know what is going to happen!

I have had an iphone 4 and now have a 4s. They scratch. First scratch was due to a rogue piece of sand at the beach. Other fine ones came after time. When I got the 4s I stuck with screen protectors. I go this route mainly for resale value. Cheers!

However, lately I have been using the Otterbox Commuter for my 2 month old iPhone 4S with the self adhesive screen protector it came with and it doesn't dull the brightness of the retina.

I tried Zagg on the last BB I owned and it was ok but not great. This time when I got the 4s I got the Power Support protectors from the Apple store and I really have been happy with it. I like that they even give you directions if you need to remove/reapply.

Mine doesn't have scratches either and I don't have a screen protector on mine. Even though it's never in my pocket or in a spot in my purse that can cause it harm. I am very careful with my devices on account I only keep them for 7-8 months.

I really am enjoying the beautiful retina screen without a screen protector BUT nervous using it without one as I can be clumsy.

I had a Zagg Kiosk put on a clear screen protector where they happened to be located right outside the Apple store where I bought my 4S and am glad I did and it also has a lifetime warranty once you register it. The smudges are minimal. Go to ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | iPhone, iPod Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins and read about them. I love it and well worth the $20.00 - the discount they gave me for coming out of the apple store and getting it put right on.

I would never consider going without one.
My 3G is in pristine condition without a scratch anywhere on the entire phone thanks to the asvic of the ATT rep who didn't want to let me leave the store without a case or a screen protector. He suggested that there were several cases which included a sp in the package. He even spent the extra time to put it on for me and he did a perfect job on it.
I hated the case which was a giant dust mwgnet cuz it was a soft sticky neoprene so I ended up getting a different case and returning the first to ATT since they give you 30 days.
But that screen protector has been on for three years with many a scratch on it that would have ended up on the phone.
If I were to sell my phone tomorrow I could get top dollar since it is in pristine condition thanks to the case and sp. Why wouldn't you choose a relatively cheap piece of plastic to protect an investment of several hundred dollars?
If you're having difficulty installing one, why not just go to your carrier or the apple store and find a nice salesman willing to do it for you? And if you don't like the way it looks or performs after few weeks, both places will give you a refund in that 30 day period.
As others have mentioned, its not a question of IF it will get scratched its just a matter of WHEN.

I completely disagree with the your are going to have a scratch without a protector for the screen. Yes it's easy to get them but if your careful enough you can go without getting them. Most people aren't but it's easily possible. Ive had my iPad two for about 7 months, only a smart cover on it and no scratches. I personally hate the plastic feeling of the protectors over the amazing glass feeling. But if your worried get them? Because with an invisishield or another brand most of the time you won't get a scratch.

I really think it depends on the person. I'm extremely careful with anything I purchase and make it a practice to not have MY devices in anyone's hands but my own so I'm screen protector less with my Magpul Field Case!

May I ask for any of these recommended skins if they ship to the UK. I'm in England and most of them mention US stores.
I want to stay away from Zagg, as if the BSE was a failure I don't want to go for a more expensive wet-application to get the same results... Orange Peel and dust.

I have anti-glare screen protectors front and back. Besides protecting the screen, they really cut down on dirt and finger prints. I don't have to clean it like a bare naked screen. Mine are some el cheapo protectors from eBay, but they work great.
