Yoko!!!! That is some awesome advice!

HAhahahahaha. I need to do this. I suck at it. Dog hair and air bubbles under mine, even though I cleaned EVERYTHING and used the little card they give you to do it with. I may just buy the Invisible Shield one and have Best Buy put it on.

I'm completely anal about it, it's rather ridiculous lol.

Best way for me is to clean the whole phone (not just the screen) and wash my hands so no bits of dust or fur. Dry both thoroughly. Remove the backing on the screen protector and line up while holding by the edges, then lower so the middle hits first. From there smooth a bit at a time from the center out toward the edges, kind of like you are stretching a canvas...middle to middle edges then middle to corners.

And yes I realize this makes me sound like a crazy person

I usually screw up all of them, use up the whole package of protectors, and finally give up on the last one. I end up using the last one even though it has bubbles, lint, dust, dog hair, ect under it.

Just... Fail lol.

Mine is messed up. It has several air bubbles and I just.... ugh gave up. But that bathroom idea sounds like a great one I might just try that!

I've never put one on anything before. I don't own any.

I didn't realize they were this common, lol.

You guys should check the screen protector that I have for both my iPhone and iPad. I do it myself, no dust no bubble. It is the BEST type of protector out there, designed especially for people like I once was (I was not good at putting on the traditional screen protectors. That is history now am a pro with this one. No bubble, no dust )
Here is one link to the type of protector I use:

Seriously, it is the best after trying out the traditional ones that drove me crazy!

I actually learned that from some of my video game friends XD

For bubbles the best way I have found is to put one edge down and use the card to push the protector on as you slowly pull whatever it's stuck to out from under it. That way you have only touched that tiny edge and if you see a bubble you can pull the protector up off the phone and do it again there. *sorry don't know if that made sense* If you do it right you should only have bubbles at the very edge and those are easy to push out.
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!
