Are you using the Fold or Flip³ @loowesse ?
Removing the screen protector on the Fold³ and Flip³ does not invalidate the warranty as far as I'm aware.
However the caveat is if the display is damaged in the act of removing the protector then the warranty is voided.
Circumvent o2 and go direct to a Samsung Service Centre to see if they'll assist.
I wish you all the best. Take care. 😎
