Question Question on the Invisible Shield removal and reinstallation?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone ... well I had just install the Invisible Shield onto my Storm and I waited the 12 hours as instructed but now when I turned on my phone I noticed that there is a speck of dirt under the screen protector ... you don't really notice it until there is a white background ... its not that bad but it annoys me now that I know it's there

So my question is that if I try to remove the protector now to remove that speck ... would I be able to reinstall the screen protector without a problem or am I screwed and I have to get a new screen protector?

Also for those of you who installed this product ... will the little bubbles of air that I wasn't able to squeeze out go away on it's own?

Thanks for any help or advice!

Not worth the Hassle, the screen will not scratch unless you use a diamond on it it is a Glass screen not plastic, Remove the protector and be happy!!!

Bubbles won't go away anytime soon. It's trapped air/water. You can try to carefully pop them using a syringe (which is what I used).

The speck of dust is there for good. If you take the protector off now its worthless. If you have little bubbles that look like they're filled with liquid, then they'll go away in a few days. If its air that's in there, then wait a week, and then you'll have to pop them if they are still present. I am very particular about air bubbles, so I just take my time and do it 3-4 times when everything is still wet and everything is perfect. Just wait 6 months until the invisible shield turns yellow and take it off lol.

I had the same issue. If you remove the shield (even carefully) you will need to use a new one...because the area you use to pull it up (corner) will look worse then the spec if you reapply it... and if the spec drove you nuts (like it did me), then the corner will be 10x that. Just buy a new shield, they are cheap..and be carefully to remove all dust first.
