    I received my BodyguardZ today for my new ViP4. They suck I'm returning them right away. They are the worst I've seen, virtually impossible to put on without bubbles. I tried twice with the back and once with the front. I did it in the bathroom with the shower running too. I had better luck with the cheep one that came with my case. Anyone else have suggestions for a different brand.

    WrapSol, $20 at Walmart or just use static shields from Power Support

    No offense, but applying these things wrong is ALL USER ERROR. Blame yourself, never once have I gotten bubbles on my Wrapsol, PS, Zagg or I said, its USER ERROR. Dont blame them, for you not knowing what you're doing!

    I've applied a few different screen protectors and this was by far the worst. I followed direction to a T and still bubbles every time.

    use a wet solution and that will make it much easier to install one teaspon of soap to one cup of water, i used this method on wrapsol and bodyguardz and it worked fine no bubbles.

    I don't know how long you let the protectors set on your device, but the BodyGuardz do take 24 to 48 hours to fully cure and the bubbles will resolve themselves. If you are still having issues after 48 hours contact and they are happy to help you with any issues.

    The wet installs are fine as long as you wait for it to cure. They can take some time even if it is installed correctly. The air bubbles and excess water actually disappears over time by escaping through the breathable portions of the skin.

    The Dry Apply actually took 4 days to fully settle in. It was usuable immediately but a couple small bubbles were still visible until almost a week later.

    I agree. With wet install it's imperative to let it cure or else they can shift around.
