    So I used to be paranoid about my PDA phones (Treos, Mogul, etc..) and used a screen protector on them at all times. The protector on my mogul got really ugly, so I took it off and have had it like that for the past 3 months...without any scratches.

    So the question is:

    Do you use a screen protector on your Treo? Why or why not? For those that don't, are your screens scratched up?

    Disclaimer: One of my favorite games to play on the WinMo device is Virtual Pool which you play with a stylus dragging across the screen.

    I always use one. I like the Smartphone Experts one. I am sure they will have one to fit the 800w soon. You can sometimes get a piece of dust embedded in the tip of your stylus without even knowing it. It makes for a small scratch for sure. Screen protector is a must for me.

    Ditto. I always use one.

    I thought the Treo came with a screen protector preinstalled?

    Always use one and am bummed that I can't find one made for the 800W yet (just was looking in the TreoCentral store as a matter of fact).

    I guess I'll just try and trim one of my 700P ones to fit until I can order some new.

    I've always used both a screen protector and a small rubber casing to protect my treos...

    Since the screen is smaller, the pre-cut ones for the 700WX I had laying around weren't a good fit....so I trimmed it and now it's ugly as sin.

    man, I wish they would have just gone with the flush/glass touch screen.

    Use a credit card when installing the film. Do a little at a time.

    ....It says right on page one of the getting started book....Built in Screen Protector.

    Tough it... it's softer, and gives. Not like the hard glass on the 700wx. The question is how do you change it when it gets all scratched up?

    Exactly what is the point of a screen protector if you can't remove it. I always use 3rd party protectors.

    I used the same kind that I used on my 650...and for some reason, my 800w was acting up...it was registering touches that I didn't make. Fortunately, before I took it back, I realized it was because of the screen protector that I'd installed a couple days before! This one is definitely more sensitive than my older model, so I'll need a better one asap. In the meantime, I'm making a concerted effort not to put anything in the same pocket as the phone!

    I have tried different ones and now like the ZAGG Invisishields.

    Havent used a sccren protector since the visor days, had a 600, 650, 700p and 755p no protector, no problems. Im sure there are probably tiny scratches all over my screens that can only be seen when you hold them up to the light at a certain angle.

    I regularly clean my screens with whatever shirt I am wearing as well. no joke. no problems, but I am probably not as picky as some other people. I do use belt holsters.

    holsters help a lot. I might need to get one since the 800w is a tad thicker than I would like it to be for the pocket. but, if you keep it in the pocket, the screen protectors are a must (imo).

    Back in the Graffiti days you had to use screen protectors because the stylus would eventually scratch the screen in the text input area if you were a heavy user.

    I continued using them for years after Graffiti was dead. I stopped using them when I got my 700p because it was such a POS that I did not care about it. I have had it for well over 2.5 years now and it has zero scratches. In fact I even stopped using cases with my 700p and guess what, I find those are not necessary either.

    I don't plan to use either with my 800w. We'll see how that works out for me.

    I contacted BSE, they said they will probably make one for the 800. Just not sure the release date.

    Thanks Seidio! I need an anti glare one bad because although I love the screen, when driving it's impossible to see it.

    Edit: Your description doesn't say anti glare so I'll hold off until I can get it. BTW your link didn't work, here's the link again:
