Excellent product, and here's a good tip,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MediaDevil Apple iPhone 3G / 3GS Screen Protector: Magicscreen Crystal Clear (Invisible) Edition - (2 x Protectors) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Try to get the protector aligned up before you start to apply it.
If you get more than 2 or 3 bubbles, then remove it and try again.
If you get a speck/s of dirt/dust then they will never go away, and could permenantly mark your screen.
Don't worry, just remove the protector, apply some fairy liquid (washing up liquid)to the adhesive side, and wash under a running tap, gently rubbing with your fingers which will remove the dirt speck. Shake off any excess water and re apply the protector, you will get less bubbles, and any you do get will squeeze out easier. The protector does still stick firmly to your screen.
You will not know it is there, the screen is just as responsive as before, a great product.

Thanks for tip on washing with fairy liquid. Dropped protector during application first time round and picked up a few specks of dirts and just could not get rid of bubbles due to embedded dirt. So decided to check out what you said. Works!

Very helpful review.
A few of points I would add:
(1) Apply the protector in a "clean" room - no carpets, not full of static generating equipment that attracts dust, etc
(2) Before drawing air bubbles out with the supplied piece of plastic, make sure there is no trapped dust, otherwise as the review says you "could permanently mark your screen".
(3) To assist with (2), work under a good light.

I hope you are well. I am the founder of PhoneDevil.
Thanks very much for these helpful posts! We have actually found that using adhesive tape removes dust very easily and effectively. We have an easy to follow guide on our support centre which is very useful in terms of both applying the protector with no air/dust bubbles occurring, and also how to remove any that do appear.
The key thing to note is that you should never (ever) touch the adhesive side, as (although it does not affect the stickyness of the protector), skin cells are very stubborn to remove and will result in blurring if you try to remove them using water.
We truly care about the experience of all of our customers with their PhoneDevil products, and encourage them to contact us with any issues.
The high quality of our products and our caring customer service, are together the reason that PhoneDevil products have such good reviews...and we don't plan on letting our standards drop! :)
I hope this helps!

I agree, sticky tape works really well, and leaves no adhesive or residue, the protector is amazing material. According to Which? iphones don't like water (at least the older ones don't), so I'd use the PhoneDevil method.

Mr. D. Edwards says:
When i say "apply some fairy liquid" i meant soapy water, just smear some on the protector, and rub and rinse off any specs, shake it, then re-apply. The squeege will work much better. When i say "shake off excess water" really shake it off, what gets left is a very thin smear of soapy water. then squeegee from the centre outwards, and away from the ear speaker.
We have used this method on adhesive decals in the motor trade for many many years, and they were touch and stuck forever decals! So we had to make them slidable.

Great advice - perfect. In fact it was far easier to apply after washing the screen protector as above.
