Is it bad to put a screen protector on the back of my 8320? I just got a pack of 10 protectors for screens but I would like to be able to protect the back of the phone without adding the bulk of a case. So what I am trying to figure out is if I put it on the back of the phone, would it pull the paint off when I took it off? Would it be safeto do?

you could actually try using the blackberry skin. i was always opposed to it, but since i got the 8310, i'm trying out the skin to hopefully combat the dust getting under the screen like my 8300! i've got a screen protector on front as well as the skin, and i actually kinda like it...

Yeah, I have the skin too. I am trying to replace it with the screen protectors. Thanks for the response though.

I suppose. I am just nervous it will take the paint off. However that full phone protector probably uses the same type of stuff, so I would assume this would be fine.

Before I put a full skin on, I was using a generic digital camera screen protector for the battery cover. No problems when pulling it off. It's sticky, but not like packing tape or something similar.

Doesn't seem like paint to me on the cover, but that's just an opinion.

The protector is sticky or the battery cover is sticky?
