    Default Blackberry Bold 9780 scratch and finger print ressistant screen

    Anyone know if the 9780 has a scratch and fingerprint resistant screen or either one? Because i'm planning to buy one soon upgrading from the 9000 and I HATE applying screen protectors. Why? Because I had a hard time applying them in the past. Thanks

    Best guess is that the 9780 screen is the same physically as the 9700. As far as I know they haven't made any changes to the form factor other than colour.

    Not 100% but I know for a fact my 9700 doesn't like car keys

    thats the 9700 specs, sure the 9780 will be almost identical.

    I loved screen protectors on my 9530, they looked great and were easy to clean and I didn't have to worry about the screen... However, I hate them on my 9700. The PPI is just too high, and all of the three types of screen protectors I have tried have either blurred or distorted the beautiful screen (especially in direct light or sunlight) on my phone. I run an Otterbox commuter, keep my blackberry in its factory holster when not in use, and wipe the screen down daily, and (touch wood) I still don't have a single scratch on the screen. (oh, and I really am a mechanic, and I couldn't work in a more 'electronics un-friendly' environment)

    I have the privacy screen on my Bold. It wipes off easily and protects the screen.
    I have no glare issues and no one can see what is on my screen. It doesn't void out any warranty. I have tried Invisible and the Ghost Armour. I like the privacy screen.
    got it at the Verizon store and it is easy to apply. If you are all thumbs, they will put it on for you. It is very simple to do

    It is reasonably scratch resistant. It depends on how hard you try, I suppose.

    I still have the original plastic screen cover stuck on mine. Yes, the one that was on it when I took it out of the box. I never removed it. I just cut off the little tab on the bottom the help you remove it.

    Just like my fiance, she is right.. why go buy a screen protector when that works fine for her. She wont cut the plastic tab off because she is worried it might lift a little bit and create an air pocket.

    Second vote for zagg screen protectors... Formerly called InvisibleShield

    I purchased one 4-5 years ago for my 8300 and have gotten one for every device since.... Great little product.

    The problem with those thin screen protectors is the air bubbles that get stuck under it. Right now I have the Privacy Screen protector on my bold 9000. Easy to apply and remove. Its great and all but the screen protector itself gets scratched easity which is annoying. But I guess as long as its not on the actual screen i'm fine. Anyways just need a good method to remove those air bubbles, I've tried the card method but works sometimes only

    I have never used any type of screen protector and never scratched any of my Blackberry screens. Keep your device in a holster and not in your pocket.

    You don't need to lift anything. You just take a r e a l l y sharp knife or razor knif and cut the 1/8" wide tab off. Done.

    Um, thanks but I don't think so, dad.

    Holsters are the epitome of nerd. They are our generations' pocket protector and they pair well with minivans, dockers, and sneakers worn with everything. Maybe I'll start drinking Bud Light while I'm at it.

    I prefer a Vaja case despite their high cost. And if you must go naked at least a screen protector ensures you won't wreck the screen.

    I think i'll go with the screen protector. i'm a 19 year old and go to college so having a Holster attached to my belt or pants would be too geeky and nerdy and I would never use it. Oh and pulling it in and out everytime u receive a message is just too much work and annoying. A skin and screen protector should do it.

    Luqman, a skin will be a b1tch to pull out of any pocket, especially jeans. Consider getting a sleeve for it like what RIM offered with the 8300 series.

    mine the same, used a blade to cut the little tab off.

    i dont understand why phone manufacutrers just supply these fitted or make scratch resistent screens.

    Because it would effect businesses who make screen protectors ie Zagg.

    I've had a skin on my 9000 for a year and had no problems pulling it out at all.

    I'm pretty sure when I bought my Otter Box commuter series case for my 8520 that it came with an awesome screen protector. And those cases are perfect for "in pocket" transpo because they have a hard plastic outer shell that slides against your pants nicely..... no joke material there :P

    no matter how hard it is to apply, APPLY ONE! My 9700 screen is looking like sh*t and it's all my fault for not protecting it. Go through the hassle, it WILL be worth it!
