I swear I just keep finding awesome little apps every day. I downloaded this one app called "Air Mouse Pro." I just got the free version, which works fine. I can basically just use my iPhone as a track pad mouse. It's pretty cool. I can get a nice chair and relax 8 feet from my computer, and just use my iPhone to navigate it. I can also browse and watch all my movies from my bed.

As a side note, there's also a way to remote access your computer via your iPhone. You need a professional version of windows, and I only have the home edition, so I can't yet utilize it, but it's definitely something that i'll be using in the future.

I got it, but never use it. No one in my family uses them (we have 4 iPhones). The problem is that you really want to see the iPhone in all it's glory, and that becomes hidden; also makes it a little heavier (slightly). I definitely recommend getting a good screen protector. Phonedevil is the way to go. Be patient and spend hours if you have to, but do it so that you don't have any bubbles. It'll look and feel like there's nothing on it.

I'm the exact opposite, case is the 1st thing that goes on. I do this with all my iPods. When I found out my phone was coming in I stopped at best buy to get a case 1st. I got the incase btw. No screen protector yet but it's coming. Not my 1st iPhone, I upgraded from a 3G. but good info ;)

i got a POwersupport screen protector. it came with 2 front and 1 pre installation. installation went PERFECT. no dust or anything under the screen. pre installation is basically like a white sticker you stick over your phone so all the dust and etc will be gone. then the screen protector itself has like 3 parts to it. it made it easy to install, instead of trying to get it all right in one swoop
