Angry Where to get screen protector replacements?

So as we all know applying the screen protector perfectly is almost as tough as keeping it in perfect condition. I was one of the fortunate who managed to apply it bubble and dust free. However little did I know that one sunny afternoon while my TP2 rustled around in my front jean pocket that somehow the corner edge near the talk button would snag on some fabric in my pocket causing the corner to start peeling.

I tried vigorously to keep it stuck down by rubbing it but as know that once the air and dust get undernearth it only gets worse from there.

I then attempted microscopic surgery on the damaged edge with an exacto knife and a credit card and removed the limp corner but only found it has now started to bubble near that area and is slowly spreading like cancer.

My question is obvious. Where do I get a replacement for this? I have the Telus TP2 and would like the exact one my phone came with. I don't understand why Telus doesn't sell extras.. And I don't want some 3rd party piece of garbage that won't stick or that I have to cut and shape myself.

Any suggestions anyone?

The touch screen works as good as when it has no screen protector, but it feels a bit "rubber".

I love it

Re: Where to get screen protector replacements?

Same problem, I'm on my 3rd one, stupid pocket..Telus store was no help at all, I ended up buying a generic one and ony cutting it into a square and putting it over the screen only. So far it hasn't caught on anything but we will have to wait and see..pain in the arse. On the plus side, a screen sized square goes on much straighter and easier than the one that barely fits the phone..

True, the shape of the TP2 compared the Diamond made a huge difference when putting it on. The only place you run into problems is lining up the ear speaker and the where the talk/end buttons are.

If anyone can figure out how to an extra one from Telus please share your secret! I managed to get one ONCE but only because the guy was nicer than average and he went as far as grabbing another brand new phone, opened the box and stole the protector out of the box. I got a new protector but some poor guy that bought that phone is missing one lol.

Re: Where to get screen protector replacements?

Check out boxwaves screen protectors. I'm not sure if they have one out yet for the sprint tp2 but should real soon. They are really good quality and last a long time. They have crystal clear versions and anti-glare versions. I've had the crystal clear version on my diamond for over year and it is just starting to get worn. I'll check and post a link if they have them out for the sprint tp2 yet.

Re: Where to get screen protector replacements?

I just checked boxwave's site and they don't have the US TP2 one's yet just the Euro one with the hole for the camera. They should have it soon though. I'll keep checking for everyone.

Cool, do you think I'd have issues getting one being that I live in Toronto and have the Telus version? I don't know off hand if the protector has any slight or minor differences between your Sprint version and my Telus version..
