Pros: Nobody can peek at my screen from the side
If you dont like people looking at your screen when your typing and feel that you need to type w/ your blackberry close to your chest so you have privacy - then I highly suggest you buy this product. Now I can type and know that my personal business is kept for my eyes and the receipient only.
Perfect for the Curve 8310
User: Marc Kollar, May 21, 2008
Pros: Perfect for common-space gatherings and travel
Cons: Static-cling side can pick up lint easily needs to be rinsed GENTLY occasionally
When applying this, I found that putting distilled water on the static-cling side helped to minimize the air pockets much like with after-market window film for cars. It does work best on flat screens such as the Curve. While it will bend somewhat, the mil thickness of the plastic does limit applications to flat screens.
Once I put it on my Curve (about a minute including reading of the directions), I tested it in indoor light and shadow and sunlight and shadow. Very easy to read text and view email and websites. I have the Mac OS X theme installed and I was able to clearly read the smaller font that installs for the menus.
Mostly does what it promises

Pros: Does indeed give you a privacy screen
Cons: pops up
Because the Blackberry Pearl screen isnt perfectly flat, the edges tend to pop up from the screen leaving air bubbles.
Needs to be replaced occasionally

Pros: Privacy does work
Cons: Pops up on sides with the Curve, gets lint on sticky side fast, and scratches easily
If you apply this to the Curve, and you have a hard case, leave the case on when you apply the screen. I didnt think of trying to cut to fit, but I will on my replacement. The screen itself scratches easily, but its better than having the phone scratch. There is the slighest dimming of the screen and whatever makes it black out on a tilt does add a very minor fuzziness to images. Pictures might look unclear, but after taking the screen off, and even just e-mailing the photos to myself, its not the camera on the phone causing this.

Pros: Works great
Cons: Difficult to apply if you have OCD
The screen does what its supposed to and does it well, but the sticky side picks up lint like its nobodys business. Also, straight out of the box it doesnt fit well for the Curve (not that its supposed to), but I had a hard time getting it cut to just the right size. If its too big itll pop up on the sides or the bottom and its difficult to cut it exactly straight when youre working with such a small area. Then again, all this could just be from my OCD and most people might not have any problems. :)
