    I am soon buying the Iphone, but am curiuos why I don't see much in the way of screen protection for the new G? Has the screen improved so much that it doesn't need protection? Are the mirror screens that I saw a year ago no longer necessary? I see a ton of cases, but almost no screen protection and wanted to find out why.
    I wanted to also ask specifically about the case to buy. I have read about the best/most popular 5 cases, maybe I can give some thoughts on exactly what I want and get better advice.
    I am looking for the nice spongey type cover that also can be clipped (either on belt or shorts if working out).
    Thanks in advance....

    The iPhone has a great screen to begin with.. very hard to scratch.

    But you can't go wrong with the Anti-Glare Screen Protector by Power Support. Solid product.

    Even if it doesn't, it's a good idea to protect it. Just for your own peace of mind

    I hate screen protector. You get bubbles no matter what. Try buying a case with a built-in screen guard.

    No bubbles here whatsoever. PS anti-glare been on my 3GS since July and it's flawless. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants a fingerprint-free iPhone (and doesn't mind sacrificing a little clarity).
    Just be SUPER clean at install and make sure it's straight!

    I have no bubbles on my screen. The trick is to use a clean area and take your time. I also used the scotch tape trick to remove any dirt that left a bubble on the screen.

    IMO the iPhone has never needed screen protection. The glass is very resistant to scratches. If you impact it hard enough to crack no plastic shield is going to stop it from cracking.

    I don't see a need for a screen protector on the 3Gs. I love that it has that coating that repels smudges.

    Meh, I use one. My phone sits in my pocket with my lighter, keys and change all the time. Jesus phone might be badass, but it's expensive enough that I'm not taking any chances. And if you do it right you won't have bubbles.

    a protector is cool, but not necessary, and its hard as hell to install perfectly with no bubbles.

    soon as you run a key across your screen by accident, u will wish u had a screen protector...mines saved my iPhone quite a few times, not to mention, a nice case is a great addition to go along with it

    just me, but i don't use one (currently) on my 3GS. i have an old Oakley sunglasses bag that i drop my "i" into when it's in my pocket. that keeps it away from keys, change, etc. worked so far.

    i see the need for some to get screen protection. just not necessary for me. depending on your lifestyle, you might need one though.

    you get what you pay for. cheap = bubbles & pricey = no bubbles
    the issue i am having is debris getting stuck in between my case and device, causing little pits in the back of it.

    Blink that happened to me to. I found that if you take the phone out of the case and wipe it down and the case you can minimize that.

    I've had the 3gs since launch, no screen protector=no scratches. I do, however, have it in a Vaja flip front case that protects the screen when not in use.

    i like having high quality screen protectors on mine because i'd rather not take the chances of scratching the screen even tho it is very scratch resistant just by itself
