    I have a couple of marks, guessing from my keys. Can i remove the screen protector that it comes with and install my own? Has anything else done this before?

    Sure, that is why the device comes with a screen protector. Ben

    Ben is probably right, I dont even have a Centro, but I had sort of got the idea that the protector the Centro comes with is not actually easily removable.

    Removing many regular protectors is difficult enough, and doesnt always leave the removed plastic in the best of shape, so Im worried you might do even more damage to what you have on now, and then find out you have to live with it.

    Ben doesnt specifically say he has actually done this - could you elaborate on yr experience Ben, or someone else who has done this?

    cheers

    I saw the thread that said the screen protector is actually part of the screen and would have to be serviced to be removed.

    You have to bring it to the store because the screen protector is inside of the phone's housing. It can be replaced but I'd call the store first to see if they even have them in stock.

    it has to be taken apart to get to the screen protector, and I think it's a pretty strong adhesive from what I remember reading. The thread is pretty old that had the pics of the breakdown.

    Why on earth would you put your keys and your phone in the same pocket?

    left long enough together, the keys WILL actually remove the problematic protector

    ..but, seriously, are people therefore putting all those Centro screen protectors for sale out there ON TOP of the "built-in" one?

    My wife has a fairly new Centro directly from Sprint and it does not have a "built-in" one - it has one that did come on it, but it is not built-in.

    I thought most people here were adding screen protectors to their Centro? The screen you see on the Centro is the screen protector, not the screen. There is a Palm sticker on the screen when you get it but that's not what people are referring to. Apparently someone was able to remove the screen protector by accident when removing a screen protector he applied.

    they all come with one. You wouldn't notice it unless you took the phone apart. It's an extra layer on top of the touch screen. This topic was thoroughly discussed months ago here.

    And many are adding their own screen protectors. Because once you do manage to scratch the built in one, since it's not user accessible, you're still kinda hosed. Doesn't really make a whole lot of sense except for the fact that the built in protector is a bit more durable than the touchscreen itself.

    But good luck going to the sprint store with a scratched screen trying to get them to replace the protector stating that the manual states I don't need a screen protector because there is one built in. And since that's bull, you need to replace it.,

    I have a 3rd party on on top of what ever is already there, its good because any sweat or dirt you can just wipe off. If it scratches you can just peel it right off.

    You're not allowed to wipe dirt and sweat off the stock screen?

    Well it gets messed up, with one on top you can just pull it right off and clean it.
