    Although I had a small bubble or two when I applied my last screen protector, they went away after a week or two. I think some of the modern versions allow for a certain amount of osmosis.

    Alot of soapy water and my driver's license made a huge difference. If you use enough soapy water, you can actually peel it off and redo it before it dries if you screw up. A stiff plastic card also helps. Georgia driver's licenses are a lot thicker than credit cards.

    Be careful with the Palm screen protector included with the Treo. I've read a lot of horror stories about the screen pulling with the protector when you remove it.

    Yeah, that's another thing. How do you folks get the danged thing off? I've just used my fingernail. It's hard though. I try to just peel it back rather than "up". Anyway, if I'm gonna "dig" at my screen with my fingernail every little while to change screen protectors, makes me wonder if I wouldn't dig at it less by not even using a screen protector.

    Simple; don't use sticky screen protectors. There are many which are not, such as JavoScreen, Boxwave I believe are not as well.

    You shouldn't have to keep removing and reapplying new screen protectors very often. I've had the same Boxwave Anti-Glare on my 650 for 2 1/2 years now. No lint, bubbles or scratches with the backlight on or off...

    I tried the NuShield at first because it didn't have any adhesive. The problem was that it would shift around a little and eventually interfere with the screen connectors under the shell. Very wierd freezes and app behavior when that happened.

    Since then I've been using the Palm ones and like others have said, they've worked very well. Use the applicator, driver license or credit card to apply but only peel enough off the backing to get started. From the bottom of the screen, use the card to push out the bubbles as you peel the backing away to the top of the screen. Just do it slow are careful since you can always peel some of the protector off the screen if you see bubbles trapped.

    Since you have to cut the palm ones down to size, I leave mine a few mm longer on one side so it just barely touches the case. That makes it easier to get a start when peeling it off.

    I think most of the folks who say it looks perfect are talking about how it looks when the phone/pda is powered on. I need it to look perfect when it is off too because I can't stand seeing "stuff" on my screen.........EVER.

    I know I have a problem.
    You're not the only one. I am on my 6th Treo. Before that, many palm handhelds. I never use a protector. I do however have good cases and holsters.

    Never used one of those.. The Javo Screen I have is very slightly tacky, it doesn't move. But NOWHERE as sticky like most screen protectors.

    It's been interesting. Thanks for all the input. Guess it's time for me to check out some alternatives to the Palm branded screen protectors. I don't like them that much. They are way sticky and hard to remove.

    Verizon has, on their website, a screen protector for the 700wx said to adhere by static electricity, be pre-cut to exactly fit the 700wx (I can never get those corners right! ). Package of 3 for $10.00. I just ordered a pack of those. It'll be interesting to see how they work.

    Edit: Although, after further thought... I could be talked into trying those ones that have to be put on in a steamy shower. If I can get help!
