Thank you for the replies. Are the anti-glare for static cling protectors, really dark and tinted? Or would I be better off going with the regular clears ones? How thick are the Boxwave, Clarivue, and steinheil screen protectors?Feel free to private message me at any time! I enjoy getting private messages.

I picked up a package of Zagg protectors as a temp solution. I have purchased and installed SGP Crystal Clear and SGP Anti-Glare/Fingerprint protectors on (2) laptops and (5) smartphones (mostly BlackBerry) and now I ordered their kits for my Incredible. I prefer the optically clear protection and not the wavy look that the Zagg gives you. Check them out .

Yeah still showing out of stock for the Crystal Clear one...I emailed them earlier this morning and their response was this:
Thank you for contacting SGP customer service.
We are expecting it to be back in stock by end of this week, if not by early next week.
If you have any more questions, please feel free contact our customer service department again at ****. Thank you.

The VZW protectors are just rectangular films, not shaped to fit the front of the Incredible. That means you can see them because they only cover part of the screen. I think (hope) they'll eventually have custom fit protectors because I don't like the feel of the Zagg, nor using cling protectors. I want one with adhesive that fits the entire front of the device. So far I haven't found one.

Thanks for suggesting the SGP - Steinheil Crystal Clear.
Just have to caution on the side of patience and work in a dust free area. When using the scotch tape method to detach dust, I accidentally caused an abrasion on the adhesive side that I could not repair on my first application.
The second attempt went much smoother, no particles stuck under the film. Particles tend to cause a cavity keeping a small air pocket surrounding it. If using tape to remove dust, be sure to use a type that has light adhesion and does not leave part of its own residue behind.
I noticed almost immediately a strange improvement for the responsiveness of touch for the screen after the protector was applied. It also tends to be a much smoother surface allowing my fingers to glide. Even though it is not specified as a main feature the Crystal Clear, from what I have noticed, tends to resist fingerprints slightly more so than the unprotected surface. Also, seemingly because of the smoothness, smudging is not as obstructive, it tends to distribute oil from skin more evenly while remaining fairly clear.

I tried the Zagg, but it makes the screen darker and the screen is not as smooth. Ever since I started using the Swype keyboard, having a smooth screen has become more important.
Last night, I just put on the screen from Boxwave. It's crystal clear, but the screen is still stickier than I'd like. I'd like to try the SGP Crystal Clear, but it looks like it's out of stock again. Can anyone tell me if the SGP provides a low friction surface?

I use ShapeWriter and a smooth, slippery protector is a must. I guess I will stick with the anti-glare.

My apartment is always > 90 degrees, so everything gets stickier, except for the original glass screen. I didn't know if the SGP worked any better than the Boxwave in high heat, high humidity situations.
