They sell it at office depot, compusa, for PDA screen, just cut it to size.
I use some cheap stuff from office depot, call cool laminate, which is use for laminate picture, but it is alot thicker than the PDA screen protector. I use it for my PDA, BB, watch, flashlight.

Take a look at:

I have been using the Invisibleshield for several weeks and have found it to be a great product. If you strictly follow the application instructions the results are excellent.

In my opinion one of these 2 companies are the way to go. Both offer great products (pretty much the same) and you will find one is less expensive than the other. I have tested both and both are awesome.

Both of those you have to use water with. And both come off without residue. If you try to peel it off real fast, you can leave something behind, but a little thumb action and it comes off. I have taken a few off and have had no issues.

correction: www.bestskinsever.com

Both the BSE and IS use water to apply.

One of these products seems like the way to go. A few of questions for those that have tried one or both:
1. How easy are they to apply?
2. Is it difficult to get them on without getting bubbles underneath?
3. Any experience with the IS full body wrap?

Thanks.

You just peel them from the backing and get them wet.

I actually soak it.

I placed the entire sheet into a small bowl filled with a soapy water mixture. Then removed it and pulled most of the water off the sheet. You'll know if you don't have enough water on the sheet because it won't slide freely around the screen allowing you to properly position it.

I have used the shieldzone product now on three different blackberries and it is by far the best. It is crystal clear and doesn't inhibit the dispay in any way. There is no residue when you pull it off, as long as you do it in a slow, steady manner.

Installation is easy, as long as you follow the directions. It is very important that you wash your hands thoroughly before starting. Any oils from you fingers that get onto the underside of the protector will cause a smudge and once it is applied, it's on there for good.

I've been extremely happy with the results I've had from the shieldzone product.

1. They are relatively easy. On a scale of 1 - 10 where 10 is the hardest I give them a 7.

2. If properly installed you'll have zero bubbles.

3. Not me. I'm using the Best Skins Ever full protection. Works great.

I didn't review the BSE site as much as the Shieldzone site. So BSE has a full protection option as well, huh? For that one, then, what all is covered on the device? I am pictureing basically a single sheet of material on the back panel to go along with the basic screen protector sheet. Is that right, or is there more protection?

Thanks.

If you do go the straight adhesive route...I wrote a post about my method's for cutting the sheets (purchased at OfficeMax). It involved placing your bb on a copy machine.....seems rediculous now that I have invisibleShield!
