Hero protection

Okay I just ordered my hero from sprint. My next item is protection for it. What is the best recommended case for it that will clip on your belt? What is the best recommended screen protector that doesn't interfere with the "touch" part of operating the touchscreen? Please no flames. Just post what you are using, where you can get it, and why you like i

Re: Hero protection

I have been looking at this screen protector:

And this case:

I also have a large strip that I had purchased from Best Skins ever that I used part of for my mp4 player and there is enough to cover the screen.

Re: Hero protection

dont get those mirror screens from handhelditems. I got one for my hero and my girlfriends hero and they REALLY reduce the sensitivity of the screen, ESPECIALLY around the edges. I put that screen protector on as soon as I opened my box, before even turning the hero on for the first time. And after about a week of thinking my heros screen was defective because it was not as sensitive as my girlfriends (had not put hers on at this time) i finally took the screen off and my heros screen is great now. My girlfriend had hers on for about 2 hours and took it off as well because they just suck. We now are not using any type of screen protectors on our phones and probably wont.

Re: Hero protection

Hey Fox, i got the " fellowes universal" screen protect and it works great..no problems at all.. the install is easy cause the backing on the protector has a grid which allows you perfect positioning on the device your using it on...try it..

take care

Re: Hero protection

I used a rubber case and a boxwave screen protector the only thing i don't like about the boxwave is that it doesnt fit the screen!! I also had a zagg's invisible shield on it and it was perfect i'm going back to it LOL!!!!!

Thanks for the suggestion man, will look into those, I see they are on amazon for 12 bucks. Going without a screen protector is like unprotected sex, the screen feels so good but i'm afraid to scratch it up

Re: Hero protection

I have used the fellowes protectors on mp3 players and they are easy to cut and easy to install. I may end up going with another bodyguardz as it has really paid for itself on the touch pro that I have.
