    Why would you get liquid IN your phone? Are you drowning it first? As far as I know, no one that is reasonable with the spray or water or whatever method that is recommended to install the skins has had any water damage from applying one.
    I spray the crap out of my phone and haven't ever had a problem. And I have done this with many phones, many times.

    Don't worry about. There are plenty of decent screen protectors out there. Even some that don't require water for installation such as the ones offered from Seidieo Ultimate Screen Guard this one isnt full body protection but works GREAT with a hard case. I would much rather worry about a mist of water on my screen when applying a skin than a PERMANENT scratch from not putting a skin on.

    Oh and more phantom skinz love here.

    If you get bubbles with any skin install, give it up to three days, they will go away. This happened to me with the IS and the phantomskinz. You just have to give them a chance to go away, they will

    I have the Phantomskinz also....I ordered directly from their website. Through July they are running a two for one deal on Pre skins (maybe all of them), anyway you get to complete (front and back) skins for $16.72 shipped! It took me about 20-30 minutes to put mine on and I love it! You can feel a very, (and I mean VERY) slight difference in the feel of the surface but gestures work great! Let it dry for the full 24 hours like they recommend and you'll be happy with it.

    I like the tacky feel if IS on the back of my Pre. It feels more solid in my hand.

    The screen cover is too tacky for me. Also I have difficulty getting my Pre into and out of my side case. It really sticks to the case. I had great difficulty getting IS on. I wound up with some bubbles and some dirt under IS on my screen. The bubbles are slowly disappearing, but the dirt is almost dead center on my screen.

    I was unprepared for the stickiness of IS during installation. I was expecting it to be similar to Treo screen protectors. You could move those around while they were still wet. Not IS, you get one shot and it ain't moving. I spent a lot of time removing and replacing until I gave up and left some bubbles in. The dirt you can't see until you fire up the screen. How easy is it to reposition other protectors?

    My plan is to keep IS on the back and use something else on the screen.

    How complete is the coverage of the Phantom screen protector? Does it cover the corners on the front?

    If it still is too hard to remove and replace my Pre in my side case after that, I'll try something else on the back.

    I use Phamtom Skin on my Pre. I think it made my pre look BETTER! It's super glossy and shiny and you can not even tell there is a skin on the Pre! ZERO orange peel or bubbles. Took me 2 hours to put on with mild soapy warm water but well worth it!

    FWIW, the Invisible Skins instructions say to spray the skin, not the device.

    Yes this is true, but it is so much easier with water on both. When I went to Best Buy with a friend so he could pick up... that other phone... he had them install an IS and they f'ing soaked the phone, even more than I do. It actually made me cringe a little bit. So yeah I guess spray the phone at your own risk.

    Here's a question on the Phantom skinz. I switched my clearcoat skin for the PS. It looks perfect w/ the phone off. Little to no orange peel. When I turn the phone on however I get a slight diffusion type effect on the screen. It seems there is still moisture under the skin or something. I'm at about 40 hours since I installed it, can I expect this to go away over the next couple of days?

    Cheers

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm considering removing my IS as well. It's ok, but not great. I do like the additional tackiness on the screen which allows me to slide it open a bit easier.
    I wouldn't use it on the back, because the Touchstone back has a great feel to it, unlike the original shiny one which feels a bit like a wet fish.

    I concur with Phantom Skinz. It is awesome, I used to have the BodyGuard but it was too slippery. The PhantomSkinz feels perfect and I can't even tell it is there on the main screen area. However, don't use too much soap with the water - I made that mistake and there is still a bit of soap residue trapped near the bottom part of the Pre at the gesture area. Also, if you screw up the install and mess up the skin, the package should include 2 skins total.

    I am using the Bodyguardz also. I had the IS on my previous phone. The Bodyguardz are definitely easier to install and nicer looking.

    I ordered my phantom skinz this morning on their website. It said "pre-order", but took my order anyway and has already been shipped. I had IS on my instinct and was never really happy with the its texture.

    Hi bart and all,

    We have been having a technical glitch that we cannot seem to get fixed. Some peoples browsers still show the pre-order special that we were offering before the launch of the Palm Pre. We have been shipping since launch day. If you are one of those that does see the pre-order, just proceed and the system will take your order. I apologize for any inconvenience, but this seems to be outside of our control.

    Anyone else out there with me?
    Damn, they all totally ignored your question.

    I'm with you. My Pre has been totally naked since launch. No case, no plastic, no pouch. Not a scratch.

    Well I have an invisishield on mine. I paid the extra $8 for best buy to put it on. Couldn't be happier with it. It's not quite as smooth as naked but no fingerprints cuts down on glare a little bit. With the exception of one super small neglable bubble that's off screen, they put it on perfect.

    I have Ghost Armor and paid for the install. Has anyone seen a comparison between GA and Phtantom Skinz?
