    Wondering if they're worth the cost and how easy they are to apply without leaving a bunch of small air bubbles under them, how well they stay on, etc.

    I used to have one on my Curve 8330. The product was of very high quality and came with the necessary solution and tool to effectively apply it.

    However, I found that after applying it, having followed directions to a tee and actually reapplying it a couple times, there were some air-bubbles that were next to impossible to get out. The screen added an extra gloss that made the phone annoying to look at, and after constant re-holstering and use, the edges started to accumulate dirt under it that looked like grime.

    There were also areas on the phone that were very difficult to effectively apply the film and have it stick without little pieces of it hanging off.

    Granted, I tried the key tests, the pen tests, tried to destroy the phone on the surface, and as long as that screen was on, it seemed impervious to cosmetic defection.

    I'd a good product, but if you are OCD about cleanliness or imperfections, not a product for you.

    Feedback greatly appreciated, just what I was looking for. And yes, I think I'd fall in the OCD category so it may not be the best fit for me (especially the dirt around the edges).

    be careful using these. i read where someone used one of the screen protectors that required liquid. the liquid leaked around the screen and messed it up.

    Liquid, for real? I would be livid if a screen protector bricked my BlackBerry.

    Generally wiping with a damp paper towel will suffice too, but yeah, I've seen "Moisten" in instructions too!

    BSE uses water and dish soap to apply it....as long as you follow the directions and aren't using a soaking wet product, you are fine.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    I still have the factory installed plastic on the screen. Does this phone really need a protector? Is it easily prone to scratches? I'm considering buying something for this, but have been reading other posts before I make a decision.

    Yes, the screen on this phone is very suseptible to scratches. Therefore, it is best to place a protector of some sort on it. I hear the screens are about $100 to replace.

    really? it's glass. i thought it would stand up pretty well as long as you don't pocket it with keys or something like that.

    Speaking of pocketing, you really shouldn't do that. The screen is easily depressed and I get the beeps either in my purse or in a pocket.
