    Got my first screen shield, and I can't get some of the airbubbles away with a card. So I was wondering if the airbubbles is gonna stay for good or will they disappear with time? Thanks in advance. I know this is a stupid question, but I'm too lazy to Google.

    You most likely didn't apply it correctly or evenly. Just take it off, clean the device and reapply.

    The only "stupid" question is the one you should ask, but don't. :)

    The best answer I can give is "it depends". Small 'pin prick' bubbles will usually disappear over a few days, but larger ones may leave a void even after the air dissipates. With the latter it's best to carefully peel the protector back to release the bubble and then smooth it back.

    a credit card or something similar always keeps the job done. if there are bubbles underneath its becasuse of trapped dirt, at least in my experience lol

    My daughter just asked me to apply a screen shield for her and I messed it up. Didn't know you could peel off and reapply so I am glad I found this thread.
