    I have been using the Power Support Crystal Film for my new 3G iPhone and I like it but I wanted to remove and reapply it because the alignment was slightly off. But now that I have used the pre-install film, how do I remove the tiny dust particles / lint when I want to put on the second film? I tried reapplying without that step and it looks terrible - there are tons of little dust particles trapped in between. Why does Power Support include two films but only one pre-install film? Should I just use Scotch tape or what else to get my screen super clean for installing the film?

    Post-It notes work well. Scotch tape will leave a residue behind. Blue-painters tape also work well.

    Buy a new one. Unless you are REALLY patient.

    There is no reason to throw out the pre-install film! It can be reused! When my iPhone was exchanged I had to remove the Crystal Film on the spot and took it home in a paper napkin. After I got home I just cleaned the film and re-installed it on the new iPhone. No problem!
