I can't tell if there is already a screen protector on....I obviously took off the plastic when i first got it...is there another piece underneath that original piece of plastic or am i seeing things?

I believe that there is another piece of plastic specifically over the screen. If there are no bubbles, you can leave it on as it won't hurt anything and it could offer a very small amount of protection, but to answer your question, no. The iPhone does not come with a screen protector.

Well i bought a screen protector so i don't know if i should take this other piece off or just leave it on....well depending on if its really there or not...i tried "digging" for it with my finger nail, but i can't pull anything up...but it definitely looks like there's something there!?!?!?!

That would be the new screen coating probably, but it should be crystal clear. If it was factory plastic, there would be a tab in one of the corners that you use to pull it off with.

And if it is factory plastic and you have a screen protector, go ahead and take it off and put the screen protector on.

Umm, no there's no extra screen protector on the 3GS out of the box. I'd stop picking at the screen right away unless you want to damage something.
