    I just applied, and I thought I did a decent job besides ruining one of the backs, but luckily they give you two, I thought I did it well, but I have a good amount of air bubbles, is that normal...will those subside ?

    You can try using a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting to iron out the bubbles. I did that and it worked well. Just don't leave the heat in one place for too long.

    Air and water bubbles will go away, some may take 1-2 weeks but in the end they will go away.

    Just be patient and try to let the skin set on the phone without using it for a day or two. It should turn out great. Good luck!

    I've used all the skin products (bodyguardz, IS, SGP, BSE etc). I like the bodyguardz a lot, and don't particularly care for the IS. That being said, the IS includes this rubber squeegee with their film, and I've used that for every other skin i've ever applied, and it works REALLY well to get out all the airbubbles when you install.

    What I do, is after it's layed down perfectly, I lift up one half (from the center to the top), and squeegee it back down, then I do the same with the other half. This gets rid of 99% of bubbles. Then, i use the smaller end of that squeegee to push out the smaller microbubbles, so that when it's done, i have close to zero bubbles.

    Anyway, I've got about 15 of those squeegees, from installing various friends ISs and my own, so if anyone wants one, PM me.

    That is so nice of you to give them away. I recently bought the Bodygaurdz and am waiting for it to get here and I would definitely like to have one of the squeegee's from IS because I read it is many times better then the one that Bodyguardz comes with.

    It seems like I cant PM anyone yet is there another way I can contact you? I am usually on my aim/msn/yahoo/icq 24/7 :D
