    A friend of mine was considering haven't Beat Buy install a shield for him, we asked about refunds and they said no.

    But this was back in March, so things could have changed.

    You can return the Zagg. But I doubt youll get installation fees back, if they even charged you.

    IIRC your receipt has BB's return policies and AFAIK most BBs have a customer service desk. Either one of those will give you the answer you're looking for. Here you'll get lots of opinions ranging from "yes" to "no" and everything inbetween.

    I took one off a phone about a year ago and returned it (didn't like the feel) and they took it back with no questions. They didn't refund the installation fee but fully refunded for the screen protector.

    I'm pretty sure it's a free service, so I don't think there is much to complain about.
    In fact, if people were coming in for refunds because my employees were not putting them on perfectly, I would have a store meeting telling everyone that we no longer install screen protectors on mobile devices -

    I used to work there...yes, they'll refund your $$. TECHNICALLY, there is a fee for installing screen protectors but it's RARE that they actually charge for it.

    If you did get charged for it, I'd ask for that $$ back too if the installation was poorly done. FWIW, it takes about 2 days before all the little bubbles and whatnot disappear so give it a few more days then see what it looks like.

    I'm pretty sure they charge like $12 for installation.

    But that's besides the point. iOS devices really don't need screen protectors. Apple had put a lot of R&D into designing a durable screen with just the right amount of tactile feedback. Not sure why you'd want to cover that up. After dealing with screen protectors for the first couple months of my iPhone 4, I said screw it. Not a single visible scratch on the screen.
