I've heard a lot of you guys mention bestskinsever.com. Is it really good? Can you tell that it's actually on your phone? The screen protecter that I had for my iPod video would get air bubbles in it...I'm worried that this may happen if I buy a protector for my iPhone. I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy it...

i wouldn't. its probably the same as every other screen protector out there that says no bubbles but of course there are and says no dust under but of course there is.

best thing since sliced bread if you want protection from scratches. I don't use it for the screen, and i use the crystal clear case from the Apple store around it. Its nice becase the bestskinever makes it so that it doesn't move around in the case and get scratched. It gives the thing a nice grip if you don't want to use another case around it too. If you read the directions and put the bestskinever on right you get no bubbles and its not hard.

I just got mine in the mail yesterday and I'm very impressed.

I have zero dust under it because I took the advice I read to do it in the bathroom with a hot shower running for about 5 minutes.

The only trouble I had was with a stubborn tab that didn't want to stay down, but I pressed it down for a few minutes then left it alone, and it's fine now.

I was very nervous about using it since you have to apply it with soap water, but as long as you are careful and don't put water on the iPhone itself it will be fine. Also watch that you don't squeeze water out into the speakers or button.

I have a couple of very tiny bubbles but they are already smaller than they were this morning, and the directions say that they will go away.

I've had countless Pocket PCs, iPods, Nintendo DSes, PSPs, etc that I've put screen protectors on and this was, by far, the best one. Installing it was more involved but in the end it was worth it, because it covers darn near every square millimeter and again - NO major bubbles and ZERO dust.

Very definitely highly recommended.

I'm glad everyone likes it, I should be getting mine soon. Would anyone mind posting pictures of it on? I'd like to see more than what the website has.

i want to see what would happen if the phone was dropped on cement with this case on. bet it wouldn't hold up too well alone.
I doubt there's a case available now that would totally protect it if dropped on concrete, so I don't see what your point is.

Here's the real question.. Can you get it off without ruining the finish?
Yes. Pull off and wipe down w/ something mild like a damp paper towel and the finish looks brand new.

And as for the drop comment. It depends on how its dropped. If it hits flat it probably won't do anything. You have to hit some nasty concrete to tear the shield. If you hit on a corner it will probably tear it up as that is the weak area for a skin like this as far as protection.

So drop protection isn't bulleproof but scratch protection is exceptional. It also gives the phone a nice look and great grip.

I had this on my 2G iPhone and the metal case would be dented when hit really hard but the finish was perfect.

Honestly, I'm anal and have put about 10 of these on for myself, friends, and family. It takes a bit of practice to get it right where it is lined up, non bubbled, wrinkled, or other issues.

I've found the best way is to get a set of tight fitting latex gloves and then go at it. An iPhone installation should take about 45mins to do correctly and carefuly. Otherwise, you will get fingerprints under the shield and the finish will look 'off' from the oils in your hands.
I usually put soapy water in a bowl, put on the latex gloves and wash them with soap while on my hands, dip the skin in the water and begin application.

If installed right these are hard to beat and invisible...when not installed right they are useless and look bad.
