    Hey guys,
    I've installed invisibleShield on atleast 3 or 4 devices in the past few years, all with perfect results.

    I got one for the rear of my iPhone 3GS, and installed it this past weekend, and was having the hardest time working out all of the bubbles/inconsistencies for some reason. I don't remember it being this difficult to look perfect. My installation was on Saturday, and today (Wednesday, 4 days later), micro bubbles and surface irregularities are still apparent.

    Anyone dealt with it taking this long? Should I wait longer, or rip it off and reinstall?

    Mine was only less than a day, yours though is really quite long. You might want a replacement to be sent for that one.

    What I always do when I install these is wrap the phone really tight in saran wrap for a bit.

    When you do that after it starts to adhere the stuff sits perfectly after. Try wrapping it in that for a little bit.

    Think that could help even after this amount of time, or only when first installing?

    I'm going to give it another few days and then think about getting a replacement.

    Well, I've installed shields on all my iphones and macbooks and I usually do it at night and let it dry up overnight. (9+hours)

    I think it could still help. Heat it up a bit with a hair dryer, then wrap it tight.

    getting it looking perfect was quite easy i found because the liquid gives you a hell of a lot of leniancy compared to, say, a screen protector. I'd say leave it over night to see the true results of installation, it should look pretty damn good by the morning!
