6 great reasons your cellphone needs a screen protector

At UnlockBase we deal with more types of cellphones than people even know exist. We handle all the big name brands as well as several lesser known brands. We offer the largest database of cellphones and service providers on the web, and we advise hundreds of customers each and every day about all kinds of topics, from how to unlock their phone to how take care of their phone.

Here then is our expert advice on the best post-purchase care of your device when it comes to the all-important screen. You’ve just bought or signed up for the gleaming new cellphone, but after just five minutes of use the screen can easily become a smeary, sticky mess of bacteria and fingerprints. With an unprotected screen, after just a few weeks, hairline scratches can start to appear from those times the phone scraped your keys in your pocket or you placed your phone front side down. Then there’s the dust, or the damage from UV rays, or maybe the eye searing glare from the screen when your insomniac boss calls you at gone 2am to check on stuff he could have asked you during the day.

Since the glass screen is one of the most vulnerable parts of a costly cellphone it makes sense to protect it with a good quality screen protector. But before purchasing just any screen protector, consider what type of protection you need. If you use your phone mainly for business you might want to consider a screen that protects your privacy, or if you use it at home during your leisure time, you may simply need a screen protector to protect against scratches, dirt, and sticky fingerprints.

As with many modern developments that have since become household products, the United States military first used a similar transparent coating to protect helicopter blades and electronic displays from abrasive airborne particles in harsh environments. Screen protectors are made from a an extremely thin clear plastic material that covers the screen of your phone so perfectly that users often do not even realize they have a screen protector on their phone. In the early days, screen protectors could be rather fiddly as they had to be trimmed to size, but today’s versions come pre-trimmed and punched to fit a wide range of cellular devices. Here are 6 top reasons you should put a screen protector on your phone.

  • Screen Protector For Better Privacy

With a privacy screen protector prying eyes are unable to read your private data when out in public. That’s because the information on your phone is visible only to you as you are directly in front of the screen looking straight at it. When the phone is tilted at an angle, however, the contents of the screen become masked, keeping electronic data confidential and blocking the view from nosey neighbors in the subway or on the coach.

  • Screen Protector As A Handy Mirror

Need to check your appearance or freshen up before an important meeting? When the phone’s screen is turned off, the screen protector creates a mirror-like finish if you choose a reflective style screen protector. But once in use, all you see is the screen of the phone.

  • Screen Protector To Reduce Glare

Anti – glare screen protectors use a matte finishing coat and diffusion thereby breaking up the reflected light that is given off the screen’s surface. An anti-glare protector reduces eye strain and avoids you having to squint due to the harsh glare. They also improve visibility outdoors or in brightly lit conditions.

  • Screen Protector To Resist Fingerprints

With a fingerprint resistant screen protector, screens stay clean looking without having to constantly clean them, at the same time eliminating the use of harsh cleaning agents that can damage the screen’s surface and bright glossy finish.

  • Screen Protector To Guard Against Bacteria

Constantly touching the screen surface with your fingers is going to create mold, while climactic conditions can create mildew that causes stains, odors, and other problems. A specially formulated coating on an anti-bacterial screen protector kills over 99 percent of common bacteria by preventing its growth and transmission. The perfect choice for those working in hospitals, schools, and other public places where bacteria can breed and where cleanliness is of prime importance.

  • Screen Protector To Prevent UV Damage

Anti-reflective (AR) screen protectors offer UV and glare protection by filtering out UVB rays while eliminating glare from sunlight thereby optimizing the screen’s readability with minimal eyestrain.

UnlockBase acquires Unlocking.com

One effective way to beat your competition is to buy them. This seems to be the strategy of Australian born USA based entrepreneur John Milton, CEO of UnlockBase, the largest cellphone unlocking site on the web. In the past month he has bought gsmliberty.net and now his latest acquisition is Unlocking.com.

Unlocking.com was founded by Irish entrepreneur John McLaughlin in 2002, and was originally known as uniquephones.com. The site was subsequently sold in May 2011 to Vietnam born, Australia based Nguyen Thuy Hoang. Mr. McLaughlin was among the first site owners to unlock Apple iPhones in 2007. Mr. Hoang has since diversified and has the exclusive right to sell MBAs from the UK in a number of Asian cities. Hoang bought the cellphone unlock site in 2011 but admits he struggled to make his investment profitable due to the complexity and ever evolving nature of the cellphone unlock industry.

Make no mistake, cellphone unlocking is a tough and fast moving business” explains Mr. Milton. “If you’re not right on top of what you are doing it simply won’t work for you. At UnlockBase we pride ourselves on having some of the best reverse engineers in the business as well as a fast and responsive customer service that is open 24/7 365 days a year, always with a human being present to help and quickly resolve problems.

Unlocking.com started out as a small project to allow users to “modify” their handsets. The site created tools to allow customers to change fonts, edit menu text, and change default clipart on their handsets for free. They then reverse engineered any Nokia handsets they could find. During this time the owners discovered all sorts of hidden data on the hand sets, including how they could be unlocked. In the winter of 2002 Unlocking.com was the first company in the world to offer phone unlock codes online. Within a few weeks the site was unlocking 8,000 handsets per hour, all for free. They only began charging users for unlocking in October 2004 and in the summer of 2006 they started to expand beyond Nokia.

Today Unlocking.com enjoys global reach aided by numerous online publications. The site has been featured in Google News, The Irish News, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal as well as Polish, Norwegian and Austrian newspapers and magazines. This has resulted in an impressive 4 million unlock codes delivered to customers in 165 countries. The site supports several handsets from over 750 carriers worldwide.

John Milton indicated his potential interest in purchase Unlocking.com began as early 2013. Eventually Mr. Hoang reached the decision to sell after some three years and Mr. Milton managed to acquire it for a quarter of what Hoang bought it for 5 years earlier.

We will now absorb the Unlocking.com database into our own.” said Mr. Milton. “As with gsmliberty.net, we anticipate unlocking.com customers will be delighted with the service we can offer. We like to be competitively priced, quick to react, versatile and offer what we believe is the largest database of phones and service providers anywhere on the net. I admit it is hard for some smaller sites to compete with our product offering – but we have been doing this a long time – fully 15 years.

UnlockBase operates worldwide and frequently receives cellphone unlock requests from countries as small as Kiribati, or as wealthy as Kuwait. To assist customers, the site offers a full suite of online paying services. This is of great importance where customers live in countries without easy access to credit or debit cards.
