    Anyone else having trouble with the Zagg invisible shield - I got mine at the mall where I got the pre, had it installed on two pres. One (my gf's) is prefect, while mine had horizontal lines that were highly reflective (un-dried glue probably). After a couple of days, went back to get a new one. They told me to wait 24 hours, and after that I had to return that one since it had a lot of horizontal lines.

    So just got back with the 3rd one, which still has lines (this time much smaller). Man, the pre seems to be cursed!

    Mine had the same thing. The lines were too evenly and perfectly spaced and they were all exactly the same size for it to be a glue problem or something like that. Had to be something in the film or possibly thinner spots...

    So what did you do? I have 1 and a half weeks on the 2 week free-replace-and-install and not sure what to do. I might try my luck again over the weekend, but I am getting sick of going to the mall.

    had mine put on by the booth I got it from and it looks great. There are no streaks or the horizontal lines that you guys are mentioning.

    if you goto the zagg.com website you can use the Retail location funtion to see if one is close to you. Once you do a search you should see if (if any) are a installation location.

    Same here.. I tried doing installing it myself and it look horrible. I was at the Philadelphia air port last weekend (layover) and saw a zagg kiosk. I brought mine there and they told me if I pay the $5 install fee they will give me a new one and install it (obviously) So they put the new one on and it looks great! Took them about 15 minutes to do (had to reapply a few times). Im very happy with my invisible shield. The pre shield was the hardest to install out of any of the ones I have done in the past.

    really they're all about the same. I had a Zagg IS on my pre but messed up my install leaving an air bubble in the middle of my screen. It worked great though, no scratches on my screen and I really liked the texture it gave the phone. Some people whine about an "orange peel" look that comes from the shield but when the phones on you dont notice it at all and it doesn't hurt image quality. Next I decided to try Bodyguardz brand since they give you two in the kit and I thought it would be nice to have a spare incase I screwed up. The BG'z are thinner and clearer than the IS but the pattern they're cut from was harder for me to install. Other than that both are great products so pick your poison.

    Also my father is using BeskSkinsEver on his Pre and Its pretty close to IS. The pattern/template they use for the corners is a little more generic and the skin itself is a little thinner but it went on easy and is working great for him.

    I have BSE on my PRE also... Like Mikest mentioned, the corners are pretty generic but the main body portion of the phone is pretty invisible and have no problem with any visible lines or anything. I have the full body protector installed.

    I'm thinking maybe I should have someone else do it for me, but only Best Buy's are listed on their website in my area. Does anyone know if Best Buy will install it?

    If you load a white I can see them the best - they are highly shiny lines.

    I wish I knew. All their website says is "under development".

    I recommend Ghost-Armor. I've used ZAGG for many years since they've changed their website name several times from theinvisibleshield.com, shieldzone.com etc. This is my first time using Ghost-Armor but I have to say it is much clearer and smoother than ZAGG. Dare I say it's more "invisible" than the invisible shield. Someone even asked while playing with my phone when I was ordering my ZAGG - had to tell them it was already installed.
