It shouldn't. But, did you not clean your screen before you placed it on?

It won't scratch. I've had dirt get caught in some of my screen protector installs, and when I decided to take it off and install a new one later on, I didn't see any scratches on my screen at all. This applies to both my iPhone and iPad.

Although, on the iPad, it's a bit harder to do a perfect install of them. But you shouldn't have any worries. ;)

Maybe your hands are dirty when you are installing the screen protector?

Depends on what the "dirt" is.

It's fairly simple: if a material is harder than another material it will scratch. If not, it won't.

That's never happened to me on any of my devices. I know my wife had the invisibleshield and some cheap rubber/plastic case that would lift it up, sand got trapped under it and she didn't care to clean it. I'm not just talking about 1 or 2, it was like she dropped it in the sand and had like 20 sand particules under it. I was afraid it would scratch it but to my surprise it didn't.

It will only scratch if it moves around. Since it's trapped under the film, it shouldn't move or scratch. Must be pretty annoying to see though.

It wont scratch (assuming it's sand though) but if any pressure is applied to it, it will nick it.

Yes, it will. Remove with cellophane tape and put protector back on.
