I have used both of these and they work great no issues.

Lecter, I have to throw ScreenPatronus in there too... they last months and are a great company to purchase from.

If you want something inexpensive and the quality is top notch (for me, atelast) go for Best Skins Ever. I installed the screen cover without any problems.

How is the Shieldzone protector working for you? I have one on order and should get it this week. Looking forward to it. They look really durable. Did you ever have to replace yours? I got the full body skin.

I put Screen Patronus protectors on every phone/pda I get, the second it's out of the box.

Never had to replace it unless I changed devices (Defective).

Please note: once it's removed you cannot re use.

Do you get that Visual Voicemail with T-Mobile on your iPhone? I have 2 extra numbers on my plan as sub-accounts so I'm not voiding my contract anytime soon. Plus I really like T-Mo's service. To get the iPhone I would really want Visual Voicemail. It's the final dealbreaker for me.

The Visual Voicemail feature is only exclusive to AT&T. I can live without it

BestSkinsEver!

I put the total body on my phone after I got a scratch, and didn't want any more, and I must say I feel like I could throw it across the street and won't end up with any visual damage.

I have even dropped it a few times from a car and no scratches or dents. It's not thick and does not impair the view of the screen. And, it is very hard to tell it is even on the device

And if you get the BSE, order two. I put one on my 8700 and it dropped a few times with damage only to the skin. After about a year I pulled one of the skin panels off (it was amazing and disgusting how dirty it was). I was going to order a new skin and replace the old one, but I never got around to it, and of course the phone fell and scuffed right where the skin had been.

For my new 8320, I ordered 2. When the original gets worn I'll swap it out for a new one and order one again.

Good thinking!

I just ordered a few more, actually. Maybe every few months I'll remove and replace.

I've got the BSE full coverage kit. Also bought 2 extra screen protectors as the rest of them aren't the most important to me, but the screen protector will get replaced if it gets beat up.

Install was nice and easy, just follow the directions and you'll be fine.

Also, when installing BSE, don't get scared with the whole soapy water ordeal. I was iffy about it at first with getting my device wet, but it's not as bad as you think. You actually use less water than you'd need.

This may be a dumb question (OK, it is), but is there a link to someplace that has pictures showing where each piece goes? I got the BSE (full skin) for my 8310 and it's not obvious to me where they go.

Thanks.

Hmm, the two skinny side pieces go up the side with the larger tag part wrapping around the lower part of the faceplate near the plastic clip with your carrier name on it and the microphone in the center of it.
The plastic clip itself is covered with two parts, the smaller of the two going on the face of the unit.
The piece that has the small relief goes on the clip from the back side first where it goes down to cover by the microphone and the relief that is cut in it should go around the mic hole.

I think the screen and battery pieces are pretty easy to figure out.
