Once all the pieces are applied, you can lightly dry the unit and lightly polish it with your towel. Do not exert too much pressure on the film for 1 hous – until that time, the adhesive is still curing, and it is possible to have a piece come off. After 1 hour, you can treat the phone however you wish – it will be nearly impossible to accidentally remove any film pieces.
Try not to get any moisture near openings on the device, such as speaker holes and microphones. If the solution does get into these areas, blot it off with a towel. Sometimes, there are edges and curves on the device that the film will not stick to when wet. If this happens, apply the film to the flat areas, squeegee, and then wait for the edges to dry (5-10 minutes). Then, push down the edges – they will stick better.
In Step #7, to speed up the process, apply heat to the film using a blow dryer. Only 1 minute should be needed with a blow dryer, but be careful! Blow dryers can make your device very hot and risk damage.
Problem: There is still some moisture under the film after I’ve applied i
Solution: Moisture should dissipate after 2-3 days. If it does not, you can also use a blow dryer to help remove it.
Problem: My edges aren’t staying down – the adhesive isn’t sticking to the phone in curvy areas.
Solution: Set the phone aside for 5-10 minutes, letting the film dry a bit, and then try pushing the edges down again, or use a blow dryer to dry and soften the material.
Problem: I ran out of solution in the spray bottle!
Solution: Refill the spray bottle with water and continue using it as directed. If you find the solution is not slippery enough, add one drop of baby shampoo to the spray bottle, shake, and try again.
