    Just a quick heads up for everyone: I bought a Zagg full body shield from amazon for $11.77 (although it looks like it went up to $12.99), + $4.99 shipping. It arrived in about 4 days. I called Best Buy and asked how much the installation was, and they said $13.99 for the full body or $7.99 for just the front. But when I went in to get it installed, he only charged me $7.99! He did a great job with the install; if you look REALLY closely, you can tell the alignment is a LITTLE bit off, but there's definitely no bubbles or anything like that. Much better than what I could have done (and believe me, I tried).

    Zagg full body shield: $12.99 + $4.99 shipping = $17.98
    Best Buy Installation: $7.99
    Total: $25.97.

    My BB only charged $7.99 for the full body.

    Smart to buy it off of Amazon, though. I think BB's price (if I remember correctly) was $30.00 for the full body kit. That seems ridiculous to me.

    Why on Earth would you pay $8 for installation?

    I just put my ZAGG in yesterday. First time, and it only took me 'bout 15 minutes if you follow the directions closely. I let it cure for a few days and it looks perfect.

    Mind as well do it yourself cause $8 can get you a BSE.

    When you let it cure... does that mean you do not touch it at allll?????

    I assume if you don't touch it at all, the process would be a lot quicker (24-48 hours), but I used the phone daily and it dried up fine.
