    Just ordered an Ultra Crystal from SGP and is coming in the mail soon.

    Before I slap a case on my iPhone with the crystal, I wanted to put some protection on the sides and back.

    Any suggestions? Dry applications only please.

    Thanks!

    Are the sides and back dry applications? I'm tired of the wet applications coming out so easily. :(

    Check etsy.com or luckylabs for side wrap. You can try wrapsol for the back (I don't like their wet install skins but they say their iPhone 5 back protector is a dry install).

    Went for the 2 tone back skin myself. Their fit is fantastic.

    Went with Bodyguardz for the back, 50% codes now so might as well give them a try.

    How does the side applications hold up?

    The case I'm about to put on it is fairly tight, I was wondering if they hold on pretty well.

    Can't seem to find back and side protectors that cover the whole surface of the back. I don't care too much for the chamfer, but so far a lot of them have been 1-2mm short on the back sides.

    I used BCO skins since they offer so many different textures of skins and offer full customization. Got mine today and will be doing a review soon. They have lots of coupon codes too "takeitoff20"

    Sorry, I decided not to install them. I looked at more pictures and did not like the high glossy look and the fuzz that the sides attract. I ordered the lucky labs skin today, i've used them in the past.

    No worries, i can understand that...Bodyguardz offer a refund or return label? I may return mine.
