    I want an anti-glare screen protector for my BB 8900. And by "anti-glare", I mean a satin finish that'll make the display like an old laptop screen instead of like a glossy piece of glass.

    I've tried purchasing a few that claim to be anti-glare, but they're not; they make my phone's screen look like it's coated in wet Vaseline. I'd try some more brands, but the prices are insane - $13 plus shipping for a single thin little piece of clear plastic? Upwards of $30 total for a pack of three?!

    Why are real, working, anti-glare screen protectors so hard to find? Can anyone recommend a place where I can get a good one for a reasonable price?

    $11 is still waaay too expensive for a little piece of plastic (and I want to have at least three, in case I have trouble getting them on without bubbles). And look at how shiny that one is in the video! Not anti-glare at all...

    I use invisible shield. Not TOTALLY anti-glare, but better then without. When the screen is off, the screen protector looks slightly textured... I'd call it "pebbled" I guess. I don't know if there is anything out there that have the same effect of the old laptop screens you're talking about though...

    I don't like the anti glare protectors because they degrade the way the screen looks overall... Also the gain from them in sunlight is fairly minimal anyways.

    Anti-glare will always do this. Thats what you get with it and will always lose screen quality. If you want clear, then get a crystal screen protector

    I agree with this. I just took the anti-glare protector off my Storm 2 because it really gave a horrible quality to the screen.
