How do you get the air-pockets off the screen?

- Yes and I tired to remove and replace but still have the air-pockets. The screen protector came with the case I purchased made by Otter Box.

If the protector is stiff try warming it up and place it on from one side forcing out any air as you go.

When you apply the screen protector use the edge of a credit card to press the air bubbles out as you put it on.

It also helps to wet the screen protector before applying. Use something like glass cleaner and be sure to wipe up any excess moisture before it runs into any openings in the device. It may take a day or two for any bubbles to work their way out.

Ensure that the screen is as clean as absolutely possible, and small piece of dirt can push the protector up causing such air pockets.

you can also use a pin to poke a tiny hole in the middle of the bubbles and press the air out. usually, the pin holes are too small to notice afterwards. don't press too hard, just hard enough to pierce the protector. otherwise, just use the credit card to try to push the bubbles to the edges. a clean screen is a must or else you'll have debris preventing good contact.

I used a fine water mist sprayer first before applying the screen protector. Makes it a lot easier to remove air bubbles with a credit card.

I buy mine from my local Mall Verizon kiosk and have her apply them. Those folks have lots of practice and get it right 1st time everytime. Works great for a fatfingered gomer like me!!
