Have you used this product before? I am looking at the zagg as well (only screen, no full-body there yet) and I have heard 'yellowing' issues with Zagg, but I have a 50% off coupon for there. The price of this one is slightly higher after the coupon, but the price difference is secondary to a better product.
A good review or two of this product would be helpful!!
Here is the Zagg one ($14.99)
Wow...they just added full-body coverage since yesterday for $24.99!!

The glossy black silicone skin they sell at Verizon is REALLY good. It fits perfectly and addresses the two concerns I had with the phone. 1, that the camera protrudes so far that when you lay the device down it makes contact with the surface - the skin comes out far enough that that doesn't happen. 2, that I can set it face down on a flat surface and the screen will not be scratched by some small grains of dust/dirt. The skin provides a small bevel around the screen that lifts it up ever so slightly.
It also has a somewhat cool "scale" design, visible when light hits it just the right way.
I'll post pics...

Is that glossy silicone skin "sticky"? Will it get hung up in a pocket?
Also, I love the idea of a Zagg skin, but after having them on both a storm and an iPhone, they peal up at the corners sometimes. Even if you have their people install it.
I dont know what i'm going to do yet.

I had a Zagg invisible shield on my Samsumg Omnia last year. Honestly, I would never buy it again, for a touch screen phone especially. It protects the phone well, but it sometimes has a sticky feeling that makes it very difficult to swipe on the touch screen. It only really works when your hands are well moisturized or oily, otherwise they will slightly stick. Also eventually the small pieces on the sides will eventually start to come off and collect lint.
Also if you screw up the application and let bubbles under the skin, even though most will evaporate, micro bubbles will still be stuck there and be very annoying. It's annoying to apply and can be an easy $30 loss if you screw up bad.
My honest opinion is to do with what I did with my Droid: Buy a kick *** "Seidio Innocase" and get one of those general screen protectors. The innocase fits well, looks amazing, and is thin enough to not add virtually any bulk at all. Also the screen protectors are better for sliding fingers on the phone and never cause sticking.
One thing to note is that I use ShapeWriter as my on screen keyboard, so I do a lot of swiping and prefer to have the least resistance or sticking possible.
Just got home from work and it's here! Ill post some pics of my loot soon. The box is very cool. It has some texture on it like snake skin. It came with a spray bottle, squeegee, and instructions. Took me about 3 minutes to install. Its very smooth and easy to slide my finger across the screen.
That silicon case is pretty cool. I may get one then just use the screen protector. The back feels like rubber so who knows if you can even scratch it. Does it hang on to the phone well. I used to use cases but they always popped off on me and drove me nuts.

sorry just saw the response.....not getting notifications.
Yeah the corners of the full body pop up and turn yellow.
What is the one place that phones get dinged when dropped? The corners.
They are tacky, but that goes away over time.
I now only do screen only ones.
I am torn between this and the Phantom. Probably just order the IS when I find a coupon.
