    My method: clean screen, apply special liquid on screen, start applying screen protector, push out bubbles and liquid with card (credit card, etc.)

    I use some shieldzone spray, I think it's like alcohol based, or it's just water.

    special liquid?

    If you are using a shieldzone type film, then you just need to use soap and water. It's applied the same way you would apply tint.

    The adhesive on the Shieldzone or beskskinsever is activated once wet, soap makes the shield slippery for adjusting and what not.

    You could use a credit card to then squeege (sp?) the water/air out.

    You can also apply it in the bathroom (what I do). Turn on the hot shower and wait for it to get a bit foggy. This way, you won't trap any dust particles under the screen. leave the battery in a dry place outside of the bathroom.

    scotch tape is your friend when dust particles land on the screen as you put the protector on

    when you apply, work your way out from the inside, centre. don't too much about small air bubbles as you can gently massage it out of an edge. some also disappear after a few days. i am one of the most anal when applying a screen protector. it must be perfect with no dust particle.

    what I do is clean it with alocohol. Apply the protector in dust free environment. When applying start from bottom, align it, then slowly use ur thumb pushing the protector on to the screen. Work it from bottom to top

    got a question regarding the k790.. the cybershot logo (says rogers on mine) sticks out a bit so when the lady put on the screen protector it lifts it up. is there a way to put it on smoothly and have it not stick out?



    will i be able to take it off and reapply it? costed me $10 ><
