    I have to say, of all the back protectors I've seen, Phantom Skinz seems to be the most impressive. However since it requires a water application, what are the chances of water leaking into the phone itself? I suspect that there are several entry points within the back, and sides of the phone, for water to enter. Am I right with this assumption?

    If any of you have wet applied a protector, how did you go about insuring that no water leaked into the phone?

    You don't use that much water, I don't think it's enough to do much, and you just apply carefully with a towel handy. Mop up any excess water immediately and you shouldn't have a problem. As I squeegee out the excess water I have a towel pressed against the side so whatever comes out will be immediately absorbed. I've done several wet installs with various devices and have never had an issue because of it.
