    Checked the CB store, and VZW's website and couldn't find screen protectors for the new Bold Touch.

    So, any word on when these will start being sold? Should I just keep on the screen protector that is on the phone when I get it until some good ones are being sold?

    They have them up on newegg. They also have a 1600 mAh battery for $10. Anybody going to give it a whirl?

    I would stick with clear. You could lose some clarity with the mirrored/privacy type.

    Got it, thanks! I had the privacy one on my Bold 9650 and hated how thick it was. Definitely took away from the screen brightness and clarity.

    Thanks again!

    EDIT:
    If I'm disappointed with battery life, I'll probably pick up that 1600 mAh battery. $10 seems like a steal...

    I always get my BB screen protectors (I prefer clear) from eBay. I only buy from USA sellers (quick shipping via First Class mail) and make sure they are the type with 2 removable layers. They can be found really cheap so I get extras and never worry about installation problems or replacing anytime I want. I ordered 5 for a 9900/9930 for just $3, shipped.

    Shipping from newegg is 5-7 days and I leave for college at the end of that time period. I really don't want the screen protector shipped to my house and then have it shipped to my college from my parents when I'm moving in and having orientation (great time for stuff to get lost...)


    So, after checking eBay, I picked up this for $2.50 (amazing price compared to Newegg... and if they aren't as good as the description and it turns out to be one of those 'you get what you pay for' kinda deals, I can just cut my losses of $2.50 and pick up a legit screen protector when they hit stores.

    That size battery will actually fit normally into the Bold 9930.. why didnt RIM just use one of those in the first place? :/

    It does although seem like a steal at that price.. anyone think there is something sketchy about it? I mean Newegg is like my favorite place so I doubt it would be, but IDK the price just seems.. Off...

    I prefer the Invisible Shield ones. I have used them on every cell phone I've ever had that they made one for. They don't have them available yet though

    I usually buy XtremeGuard screen protectors, same ideas as Invisible Shield at much better prices. Always work well. I emailed them and they said 9900 protectors should be out soon, but no ETA.

    Tru Protection is an amazing protector. Bought the Anti-glare one from BB as they had 30% off fit perfect. =)
