    Ok, I just got my PhantomSkinz in the mail and love it! Very simple. BUT, my screen protector is very hazy.

    I know the instructions say it may appear this way from 2-4 hours but it's been over 4 hours now. There are no bubbles, the feel is GREAT, but it really is detracting from the beautiful screen right now

    Any tips? Or do I just have to wait longer? I've never done a wet application before so this is all new to me

    Wait at least 24 hours...and hopefully you didn't have very soapy (bubbly) water!

    No, not at all! I was really careful to make sure my hands were clean, the screen was clean, etc....it is a perfect fit and again feels SOOO much nicer than the stock VZW one I had on to begin with. Just want to make sure the cloudiness of it will disappear.

    Thanks for letting me know....I was afraid maybe I messed it up :)

    It might clear up. Mine did not. I reinstalled it and used Dawn instead of what they recommended and put the soap in after filling the cup and no haze at all. Had a friend have the same issue, she reinstalled the same way I did and no haze.

    Reusing the same one will be ok?

    I've never reused the same one, but they do provide two! I had a very similar one on my old phone and when I tried to remove it, it stretched because it was stuck on so well...came off clean, but not reusable for sure,

    Thanks again for the help! All the moisture has tried up under the screen and the haze is definitely gone. One of, if not THE nicest screen protector I have ever had. Very satisfied :)
