    I get it, this is old news. Thanks for being cool with the noob about it. :rolleyes:

    Why are they writing the article like it is groundbreaking news?

    This makes me happy as heck! Im not rough on my phones on purpose, but between an active lifestyle added into work abuse I was worried that the phone would show signs of wear sooner rather then later. But then again Im coming from a pre so Im used to things not lasting...

    Actually, I'm a total geek and I had no idea. I had already seen that video with the scratch test, but I didn't know it was actually Gorilla Glass brand.

    I didn't know about it either, but I heard something about Gorilla Glass in some phones posted way back in July.

    I wont be if the Epic has this same glass. Granted the shield is fine and all, but I prefer a 'naked' screen feel to a screen protected one.

    Sphinxx, you won't be needing a shield then because the Epic has Gorilla glass

    Omfg double battery life would be amazing. Too bad it'll make the phone even more huge, but whatever. Is it even worth getting a case at all?

    How much is the deductible if I lose my phone?

    Whatever, no phone is perfect. Should we know the deductible fee already if the phone isn't out yet? It varies phone to phone obviously.

    Yeah I dont mind the extra weight and thickness. I had a double sized battery in my pre and it was noticably bigger but actually made the phone better in my hands. Plus I went from barely a day of use (if I was lucky) to getting 2-4 days of use.

    I thought the deductible for the G1 was 130?

    The G1 is Tmobile, not Sprint. Go to sprint's TEP page. They have 2 tier deductibles. Tier 1 phones all have $100 deductibles and tier 2 all have $50 deductibles. The Epic 4G isn't on the pdf yet, but I VERY HIGHLY DOUBT that they will add a new deductible just for the epic 4g, especially since its retail value doesn't seem to be any higher than the EVO 4G.

    It would be a great idea if you're like me. I get paranoid in the beginning about the condition about my phone, but once I through an Invisible Shield on, I feel like I can toss my phone around. I did this with my 3G s and it works really well. The only hard part is putting it on. Otherwise, I would recommend it.

    I went poking around on ebay for a shield but there wasn't much out there for the Epic. I ended up ordering one made for the Captivate. From what I read the screens are the same so I shouldn't have any problems with the shield working for the Epic, right???

    Not 100% sure, but I would think they would have the screen protectors at BB and such on launch day.
