    Thought i would post a good how to on screen protectors. I did not write this(Hypnotic2010 over at PPCGeeks did) but it is the one i have used and it seems to always go smoothly with this method. Again all credit goes to Hynotic2010

    Just thought I would share the technique that works the best for me when applying a screen protector.
    In the past I have struggled with screen protectors, and got so mad I almost broke a phone over it. So hopefully this can prevent a few people from wanting to pull their hair out.
    I have heard of many different methods people use, but for me this has been the easiest and has had the best results for me.
    The pictures are of the stock screen protector I just applied to my Touch Pro 2.

    Here goes:

    -Get a bowl or a cup of water.

    -Add a few drops of dish detergent and mix into the water.

    -Go into the bathroom and turn the shower on hot to get it steamy to drop any dust to the floor.

    -Remove the battery to be extra safe.

    -Scrub your fingers with rubbing alcohol to remove oil from your fingers.

    -Make sure the screen is clean and dust free.
    -Peel/open the screen protector.

    -Dip it lightly into the soap solution..

    -Lay the protector on the screen.

    -You should be able to move the protector around enough to prescisly position it.

    -Since it is wet there should be very few air bubbles if any, and if there is they will push out very easily when wet.
    -In a short time the protector will adhere in place.

    -Let dry overnight before putting the battery back in.

    -If there are any imperfections they will go away completley in a few days, unless there is dust under it.

    -You may notice some light spots/haze/white film in areas after the application, but any spots will go away in 1-2 days.

    -Good luck!

    Extra tips:
    **dont go crazy with the solution, just dab a little on the screen and dip the protector lightly and shake off excess before applying.

    Oh and here is a link to the original post...
