Default Zagg Invisible Shield Installation

Is it just me, or are they hard to put on? I used one of the 50% off coupons to pick up a shield for 10 bucks. When I got it, it took me 3-4 times to put it on, and still there were bubbles, even after 24 hours of drying.

I contacted them and they were pretty much no help as I did everything already that they suggested.

So I went to Best Buy today to pick up another one and to have them them install it for $7.99. It looks FANTASTIC. It took him about 3 minutes to do! They did have their own bottle of some liquid not the standard one that came in the package. Anyway, if you have trouble or want it done right, have them do it!

*They got in 75 INC yesterday, and they are already sold out.* He had to deny 3 customers while I was waiting in line.

Thanks for the tip. I also ruined my Zagg shield putting it on yesterday.. a tiny little hair, but you know-- enough to drive me crazy. I tried to pull it off and scuffed the shield with my fingernail. I tried washing it.. everything, to salvage it, but it's a no -go. I will just go to Best Buy and get one and have them do it.

Take your time, make sure your device is 1000% clean, and do it in as dust free environment as possible.

I heard they're not coming with the spray anymore, just a sponge. Is this true?

Mine came with just a sponge. I thought the install was pretty easy, other than worrying about the solution getting into parts of the phone.

The one I got from them directly was just a sponge in some water/cleaner.

The one I purchased at Best Buy came with a bottle of cleaner and a better scraper. The CSR said that they normally don't come with cleaner any more; he was surprised.

It's also guaranteed for the life of the phone if you purchase the install through them. Just walk in and get a new one put on. Can't beat that.

So if you have this do you not need any form of cover any more? It essentially protects the whole phone from any kind of scratching right?

How much was it for the whole phone cover plus installation?

I just got the screen protector..($20.99) + Install ($7.99). The whole screen is covered, including the buttons.

I just have the high gloss case around it. Perfect Fit.

I didnt think the sponge was that bad, it probably caused me to use a little more solution than i needed.

I believe ZAGG only has the screen cover right now, but i would guess they will come out with a "full body" cover sometime.

The Zagg shield covers the entire front of the phone, not just the screen.

Mine came with a little spray bottle but Best Buy installed it for me using their own bottle of soapy water. Definitely be meticulous about everything being clean. When I got home I noticed one tiny piece of lint between the cover and the screen. It's in the corner, though, so I don't notice it unless I'm looking for it, so I'm not going to worry about it.

I just purchased 2 of the Zagg front shields for the husband and I at Best Buy. Our phones won't be here until Mon-Tues, but I opened one of the packages and they did come with the spray, not a sponge. They also have a little rubbery squeegee/card thing.

I thought $7.99 was expensive for them to install them on the front screen only, but if they only 100% guarantee them if you pay for install, I may just have to pay up. It looks like we may be bringing in our Incredibles to Best Buy with our purchased Zagg shields when we get them.

All zagg shields are 100% guarantee. It cost $5 dollar to get a replacement directly from zagg or if you have those mall carts they will replace them for free and you can get it installed for $5.

It's not difficult to install the screen shield. Just go slowly and use a credit card to smooth the bubbles out while u lay the shield down.

I've found the less solution u use, the better. Plus it dries a lot faster. The bubbles will work themselves out.

Do it in a steamy bathroom. The dust particles would not stick under it.

That's what I always do. It's a great suggestion, and the most "dust free" environment most of us can accomplish at home.

Wow, you might want to check your moisture detection sticker now. It might be triggered. I have seen a few cases of them getting tripped due to humid environments.

How well does the Zagg shield work? I've read a number of mixed reviews for Zagg on the iphone and other devices.

If you don't buy your Zagg shield at Best Buy (I bought mine at the Zagg website) can you still go into Best Buy and have them install it for $7.99?

And if so, do they still guarantee it?

I had so many coupons from Zagg that it was cheaper for me to buy it online but I would rather Best Buy install it. I have a tendency to screw up even the simplest screen covers.

I installed mine and there are bubbles everywhere. It's sticky not smooth. So let me get straight, I paid $10.50 with discount at zagg, spent 20 mins trying to put this, now it doesn't work and I need to buy another one at best buy plus the installation? How much this is going to cost altogether? What do I have to do to get replacement at zagg?

That's exactly what I did...It costs $3.95 for replacement.

If you get it installed at BB, it's guaranteed for the life of the phone. Just go in anytime and they will put on a new one.

I read that you need to send ZAGG the original shield to get a replacement?

It seems awfully difficult to get this thing out of the phone.

I put mine on for about 2 minutes. It looked good minus the orange peel (minor, but noticeable). I dried it off with the microfiber towel that was included and somehow, the microfiber lost a partible and it stuck to the shield. I tried my best to remove the tiny speck of black. I ended up ripping it off in a rage.

So, IMHO, ZAGG sucks. I ordered before the phone, was told by the president via email it would get there before the phone. They lied. You live you learn.

Good luck with your install though. I hope it works out for you!

I have to say I had pretty good luck putting mine on last night. Took one try. I did have to soak down the shield pretty good with the sponge. I felt queezy when I started to slide the card down the screen and all that liquid started oozing out the sides.

Checking back today, no big bubbles and the micro bubbles are just about gone. The only problem is that I have a slight line going across the shield where I guess I scraped the card to hard.

I do have to admit that it feels sticky when I am sliding through menus and I really notice it when I am using SWYPE. Does this go away after some use? Does it smooth out?

I'm confused. Where did you pay $3.95 to get a replacement? Best Buy? or Zagg?

To only pay $3.95 for replacement and $7.99 for installation, sounds like a sweet deal for me. I would end up paying like $20-$22 for the whole thing.

It's the same thing for ZAGG, if it's only $3.95 for replacement, but what kills it is to wait another week for me to get it, and then go to best buy to have it installed.

I am assuming Best Buy removes the old shield for free to install the new one.

(By the way, It's not yet 24 hours after I installed it, I put it yesterday around 11:30pm, and this is my girlfriend's phone, she likes it better now, because she says she can feel better the phone when she uses it. Before for her it was "too smooth" for her fingers"

I told her it's supposed to be that way. Maybe not that smooth now with ZAGG, but I touch phone with one finger and when I remove it, I feel this stickiness coming out.

Unless of course, it's supposed to be that way with this shield.

I spent $17 on 2 of these screen covers on recommendations from others. The WORST investment that I've ever made. I ended up throwing BOTH away. Whose idea is it to put WATER on my new phone? EPIC FAIL. I regret spending the 10 min putting those on my phones (BOTH OF THEM) and the money lost.

Yeah, I was pretty disgusted mine got scuffed so easily just trying to pull off a little bit of lint. I also felt a little sick putting all that liquid on my phone.

You can send it back, but they say it's not warrantied against installation fails.. you have to lie and tell them your phone needed repairs, so you need a new one. Then you have to mail the old one back. I wish Steinheil would hurry up!

...well, not spraying directly on the phone, just a mist on both sides of the shield. the mist allows you to put the shield on your phone to adjust/slide it. i agree...just making the point of why you do it. [love mine, btw, so i am biased]

Got mine today. It was a better setup than the last one I got for the Eris. This one had a spray bottle and a rubber (better) squeegee. Went on perfect and I left it out in the car for a few hours to bake in. Just requires a little care and patience to install it, and a little more to wait on it to dry completely. The "orange peel" everyone speaks of has no affect on viewing the screen. It's absolutely nothing to be concerned over.

I purchased one because I had a 50% off code. I finally got it today after ordering like 2 weeks ago. The thing already had some mild damage to the front of it that is annoyingly noticeable when the phone is displaying white colors. Mine came with a sponge that fell apart and stuck to the protector while I was applying solution. The sticky feeling is very annoying even though I have worked a lot of oil from my fingers into the protector. I will be returning it whenever a better product comes out. Until the, I'll deal with it and protect my screen.

I applied mine last night but the super glossy orange peel look freaked me out so I removed it. If it was just glossy without the orange peel look I would have kept it on.

I'm going to try this method haha. So if I'm going to be applying this method, I don't need that spongey solution right?

Will BB install any other screen protectors for your phone if you bring it into them?

Also what department installs the shield? Mobil or Geek Squad?

I posted some tips here Screen Protector / Invisible Shield?

You're still going to need to use the sponge and/or spray solution. If you ever need to make more spray, it's just a drop of soap in a cup or two of purified water.

I know they install them for around $7 bucks. Not sure if you had to have bought the item there or not. I'm pretty sure it's done by the geeks.

Like I posted in a few other threads. Just went to BB today to have them do it and it came out great.

He told me to let it sit for a few hours before putting the case back on. So I wonder if just 3-4 hours will be alright. I am almost afraid to use it right now since it is fresh.

I put mine on last night. It was pretty simple and it seems fine now. I hardly notice it.
