    Is the place where you are dusty? If so, it might help to steam up your bathroom, and then go in there to apply the protector.

    I learnt that trick with the psp on gamefaqs.

    Peel the protector from its wax sheet at one corner, stick that on the screen, then use the card to slowly slide it all down across the screen.

    I HATE screen protectors,

    I was very good about putting it on, I still had like 3 noticeable screen bubbles, and if even a little bit of dirt gets underneath it, it is VERY irratating, especially on a white screen. I've been using my touch without a screen protector for a few months now, and it's fine, the back is the only thing that will scratch.

    If you insist on having one, here's what I reccomend: Make sure the protector is FLAWLESS, like I said, a little bit of dust will be annoying and cause screen bubbles,

    Start putting the protector on one corner of the screen, then get a credit card and apply it scraping the protector all the way accross the screen, the slower you go, the better.

    hope this helps.

    I have a protector. The only bubbles I have are covered by my iPod case. I think it is good to have one.

    it all depends on what kind you get I have had several because I couldn't find a good one... Yes this does sound weird but you need a high quality screen protector the one I have right now is flawless no bubble and I took no time putting it on I just slapped it on there and there are no bubbles I've done the same thing with others and they just bubble up like crazy... I wish I could tell you which kind I have but I don't no the name.....

    That is power support crystal film. Good stuff. But my touch is naked except for a small pouch that I keep it in when not in use. Works great. no bulk, no screen protector, and best of all, no scratch's.

    Considering it has a glass screen, I don't really worry with screen protectors. I just make sure there isn't anything in my pocket that can rub up against my iTouch. The aluminum casing, however, is gonna scratch for sure if you don't get a base. Belkin makes some awesome sleeves, but I don't think a screen protector's necessary if you're kinda careful.

    My screen has quite a few scratches on the screen that seem to appear overnight. They aren't real noticeable, unless it is a white screen.
    I want them off my screen, though. Any way to fix them?

    I have my iPhone in an Incase 2 piece slip case .... I don't use a screen protector but I do put my iPhone in a Lowepro Tasca pouch when in my pocket. Fits great even with the case on it. Very easy to get the iphone in and out of quickly while protecting the iphone from sharp objects that seem to find their way into my pocket. You can also clip it onto a belt loop.
    You can get them at Best Buy, mine is red and black in color, but here's a link to one like it from another place .....

    just a quick noobie question, but does the screen protector affect the sensitivity of the touchscreen?
