    Martin Fields W600 protector failed?

    I ordered a MF screen protector, got it on my new W600 without much trouble and was pleased with the fit and quality. However, after four days of residing in my pocket, the upper corners next to the game buttons began to curl up. I tried to scotch tape the dust off and press down the corners again (following an email from the company) but they don't seem to have any adhesive qualities anymore and now are bent and painfully sticking my ear as I talk and my leg in my pocket. Is the protector toast or can I do something to bring it back? The MF email said it can happen from going in and out of my pocket but I had a generic protector on my T637 for almost two years and the edges never separated from the surface (although that protector was not as clear as this one). Anyone else have this issue?

    you know - no matter what screen protectors i have ever used - i have ALWAYS had that problem (although i must say - ive only tried them on 3-4 different devices - namely, my 7610, axim, and 2 ipods)

    i just dont buy them anymore because they all seem to disappoint me

    just know youre not alone...

    Hm.... no problem here for me.... mines is still going strong and people can't even realize that i have a screen protector on.

    As a matter of fact i've never had any problem with any of the "harder" screen protectors that I've used in the past.

    Try an EXim for your w800. You won't even be able to tell it's on there.

    I have martin fields for... almost a year and nothing is wrong with it. You know you can wash it though right? Don't use tape I tried it, just put it under water and rinse it. maybe that will work

    I have a MF for my W600 - same problems. First time I took it off and did the cleaning by running it under water, etc. Worked out. And the edges started peeling again, so the 2nd times I use a lint-free cloth (the ones for glasses) to just wipe of the edges, and that worked too. And again it's starting to peel. I'll probably just cut it off, since it's getting annoying.
