    I just put on a screen protector. It was my third, the other got messed up. It came with three. It came perfect except it has air bubbles along the right edge, and a little of the top (touching the edge of the screen). It may be a millimeter off, but it was the closest I could get it. How can I get them out? I'm crazy about these small things. It is not dust, and I tried the little white card and credit card.

    I've tried screen protectors on my previous phones, and there is no way to get rid of all air-bubbles and imperfections. A screen protector will never look as good as a naked screen, unfortunately... Sorry.

    That is completely untrue. You are probably using poor quality screen protectors. I've always had screen protectors on my iPhones and iPads and with a little patience and a good quality protector, you can have a perfect bubble-less installation.

    I highly recommend the Moshi iVisor. I have one on my iPhone and I put one on my girlfriend's Fire and they are amazing. When they say bubble free, they truly mean bubble free.

    If you have bubbles along the edge try squeegeeing them out with a credit card. If there is a strip that is not adhering, it's most likely oil on the screen. I've had this problem before. Sometimes it's impossible to cure. You could try removing the film and cleaning the screen with vinegar which will remove the oil. Good luck

    There's no way I am putting vinegar on my screen haha... and I have gotten protectors on perfectly, on my iPad and iPhone. Only reason why I got a new iPad one is bc it was anti glare and looked grainy.

    I've used this protector as well. Despite a perfect installation, I still prefer the superb tactile experience of the standard uncovered screen. It's a matter of personal preference. As one who's careful, scratching is not something that I'm concerned with.

    I've tried screen protectors from time to time when my less than careful friends pickup scratches. Caving into periodic concern, each time I apply one it never stays on long before I tire of it.

    My iPhones have all survived scratch free, no problem. Apples done an excellent job choosing both the thickness of the coating and its stellar application. Each year as I upgrade, my old one always looks like new and fetches a great price.
