    Recently I purchased a full body Zagg Invisible Shield. I installed the front and back without a hitch, registered the lifetime warranty on their website and began using my phone with confidence. After a week or 2 I noticed the rear wasn't as snug as the front. By that I mean I could slide the shield around if I applied a small amount of pressure. The front is extremely snug, and wont move, even if I wanted it to. The back on the other hand is pretty loose. On a phone call I noticed it was starting to bunch up. After the call, the shield was pretty much half off of the phone. I took it completely off, washed it down with some water and re-applied. After the re-application it was never the same, so I put in for a warranty replacement and received it in about a week. My question to you is, are you having the same problem? I have had to replace the rear glass, with an aftermarket panel that may have been plastic and not glass. Im not sure if this is the problem or not, hopefully I will get some information from this thread.

    Edit: I also wanted to note that i did a wet install.

    Edit2: Yes the new shield I installed today is loose also

    Never had that problem. It's probably the aftermarket rear casing.

    Why does anyone use Zagg? It's one of the worst protectors ever IMHO.

    This happened to me a while back when Zagg barely released the shields for the iPhone 4. It has nothing to do with the back being glass or plastic but instead the shield you are receiving. How are you installing it? Also, Zaggs are meant to be installed once and not rewashed and applied again. That takes the stickiness of the shield away after it is taken off a few times.

    I have used other "harder" shields and I love the feel of the "softer" shield. Although I haven't used a ton if other shields, I really do love the Zagg's feel.

    It's nice to see someone else having the same problem, at least I know I'm not screwing anything up. I installed it exactly as the instructions say. I spray shield, put it on the surface and adjust so that it is lined up, and use the squeegie to push the water from under the shield. I did add another step though, after all is said and done I use a blow dryer to kind of dry all of the excess liquid from under the shield. On my first install this made the front perfect. I know for sure this has nothing to do with the back not being "stuck" as well as the front. This is what I have done with tint on all of my vehicles, and the vinyl on the rear if all of my fish tanks.

    Out of curiosity, what screen protector do you recommend that includes a lifetime warranty?

    None, but I still like SGP and the Pure+.
