Just got a Vikuiti screen protector and I am frustrated by how difficult it is to apply. No matter what, one edge just won't stick on perfectly. originally it was both the bottom and the top edges, then i readjusted it so that the top edge stuck on, but now the bottom edge still won't stick no matter what. arghhhhhh this is so irritating. I'm really tempted to just cut off the bottom part. Any suggestions?

Throughout this process, since it took so long, my screen protector has specks of dust underneath it. I'm thinking about just taking it off, applying tape to the entire surface, and then re-applying. Anyone have any other ideas?

My advise would be to let your phone cool down for a moment. Just take off the battery, and just let your phone be(yea I know it's hard for most of us!). After ten minutes, start applying the protector.
When cool(protector) and hot material(screen) are mixed, it causes air bubbles

And thanks for the tutorial. I tried to apply a protector for my phone yesterday, but I failed, and lost two protectors. The other one's on my screen, and it has at least six large air bubbles at the bottom of the screen :cheers:
Fortunately they are those 5 pieces per pound(@Ebay) screenies!
