OK, I have had my iPhone for almost two weeks now and am now happy with the protection system that I have on it.

For me, the best things to do was:

1) Bestskinsever.com for the total protection (back and sides), but I didn't use their front cover, as it was way to visible.

2) Boxwave for the front cover. I have this thing on perfectly, and I can honestly say that it is near invisible, absolutely amazing! Also, grease smudges are nowhere near as visible as they were without it.

I went through two of the bestskinsever covers before I got one on perfectly, but they are pretty inexpensive. I have now put two of the boxwave fronts on two different iPhones, and they were both perfect from the start.

If you didn't use the top cover from bestskinsever doesn't that mean the chrome parts of the phone are no lover covered ? or does the bestskinsever bottom piece over that alll? if so i think I will do the same and just get the Apple crystal cover then

I think that is correct.
From macro pictures i've seen of the skin, the back covers chrome sides.
Two other small pieces cover the top and bottom chrome.
In total, there are four pieces with the BSE skin, the last being the screen.

You sure that there are 4 total? It seems like 2 ... the back just covers up to the top the chrome? and the last was to cover the screen? not sure just asking..

I'm using the crystal film cover from Apple for the front. For the back, the only skin I know of that covers it all (including the chrome portions) is the bodyguardz one. Both the bestskinever and invisibleshield don't cover this part.

I have to tell ya, if you are looking for just screen protection, the Crystal Film set from the Apple store is the best I've seen yet. It is a breeze to put on and no air bubbles. You can't even tell I have a screen protection on. I'm very happy with it.

I've been reluctant to go for the clear screen protection but I actually bought the Crystal from the Apple store tonight and I have to say I am SOOOOO pleased! What a surprise. No, it doesn't cover the silver edge but my incase covers that fine. And other than seeing a little edge around the home button and the ear area it LOOKS GREAT and I'm very picky when it comes to screens. I've actually been able to relax a little more tonight knowing the screen is protected.

I totally agree. The Bestskin is great for the back and a bonus feature is that it makes it easier to grip. The phone doesn't slide out of my hands as easily. However I don't like it on the front, it has an orange peel texture. I ordered a crystal skin from Apple and I think the two will be a great combination.

I just got my crystal film set, and I ruined the first one! Do not touch it and even though it can be cleaned you have to clean it very softly and don't use a papertowel as it will scratch. But anyway, I used the second one and installed it perfectly and it was easy! And, I've been using the phone for about 2 hours now and I have to say that it reduces the residue/finger printing conservatively by about 90%. I wrote this and there is only one little finger print I can see. It's incredible!
