    I could have sworn to god I turned it off when I put the skin on.. anyway, it was only the front. I did not use too much solution. However, the screen looks very.. pixelized? Idk if that's the right word, but like, ranbowie when you move it around.

    I know it takes up to 2 days for it to completely dry, is this normal?

    Or did I screw my iPhone up?

    It's just wet. It'll look better when dry. But you should turn it off while it's drying.

    Sounds like u pushed water into the earpiece hole. Leave it off and put it in a bad of uncooked rice overnight. Make sure to tape up the headphone hole and totally submerge the phone in the rice.

    Okay it's about an hour later, and a lot of it's cleared up.. there's still some rainbowy stuff, but I'm sure it'll go away soon.

    I dont think NextTuesday was saying that as a joke or anything...I think he said that to clear up any moisture that might have got in anywhere. Same reason restaurants put a few rice in their salt shakers to prevent it from clumping.

    Yeap, if you put something in rice it will pull out moisture faster and get sucked up by the dry uncooked rice.

    So no it wasn't a joke what nextuesday said.

    I don't think he was kidding. The rice is dry and can pull the moisture out of the phone to speed the process up.

    Thats what i meant. Anyways, if u want a front skin that doesnt require moisture, try the crystal skin that apple sells. No moisture needed, just throw it on and its good to go. Its actually good protection.

    The product Next Tuesday is talking about is the Power Support Crystal Film that Apple sells. It's only the front screen protector. It comes with two PS Crystal Films and uses static cling to adhere to the iPhone's screen.

    I have a PS Anti-Glare Film and it's great. It was a snap to put on, and if you're so inclined, it can be reused (though it's a b*tch to clean any lint from the adhesive side).
