    Does the plastic edge of this get dirty with use?

    From the pictures it seems to be a tight fit.. Do you think you can still get a case over it? Agent18 or the Switcheasy?

    i followed these directions exactly, and it came out very nice. i like the feel it adds when im holding the phone in my palm now. i like the way the face of it doesn't attract grease or leave finger prints like the glass face did.

    my suggestion to anyone doing this. take ur time lol. i felt like i was rushed or something and one of my corners are overlapping but like its not even really a problem its just i know whats wrong since i did it. take ur time. make sure its aligned, and fold the edges over slowly without stretching it. the corners take time to dry/stick so don't be freaked when u see it lifting. jus keep running ur finger against the directions it should be sitting and this will keep squeegying out water until it eventually dry's and starts to stick. jus alternate all 4 corners til they all finally stick. when everythings fine n dandy n dry, you'll love it.

    I used the skin before on a Blackberry Pearl and it came out nice. It's funny that people use the steam in the bathroom to moisten the skins but the real reason I and many people do work in the bathroom is to have a dust free area.

    I usually leave the Hot water running to create the steam then shut it off and let the bathroom clear up. Dust in the air attaches itself to the water molecules and falls on the ground creating a nice dust free work place. A Poor Man's Clean room! lol

    Does anyone have any confirmation on whether the skin works with the Agent 18 hard case?

    I ordered the skin today.

    just to let everyone know, once you put in the BSE, you cannot use a hard case like the Agent 18. The BSE prevented me from sliding it on and I did not want to use force to rip the BSE.

    If anyone has the snap on cases, can you confirm whether or not they are BSE compliant.

    This is a must have, had it on my first one and ordered it right after I ordered my iPhone. Fit's perfectly.

    if you have 3 hrs then do this. otherwise buy yourself an Anti Glare screen protector and have it complete in 5-10 mins...BSE was horrible with fingerprints as well. Just my opinion.

    This is a great guide! First, though, what sort of alcohol should I use?

    My new BSE for my "16" will be here tomm and I'll be in the steam room with a vid camera ***IF*** the camera doesn't fog up while I am doing it, which there is about an 88% chance of.
