    Default Should I put a Put zagg full body kit myself for iphone 4, or have a rep do it?
    Just bought the zagg full body kit for the iphone 4. Is it easy enough for me to put because I dont mind having someone else do it, but I've seen how rough some reps are on the back lens, and front camera. Just wanted to know if anyone had any tips, opinions, etc.

    Have them do it. It is such a pain in the *** if you get ANY dust under it.

    Depends how much they charge..I find it very easy, just time consuming, took me a half hour to put mine on, but it was easy, especially for the iPhone 4 because it has a simple body. It was much harder on the 3gs with all the curves. I guess it's up to u if it's worth the money

    Usually it is like $8. Best Buy put my invisashield on for that much. I'd rather them do it because if they mess up, they replace your screen protector.

    The i4 is SO much easier than the 3gs though, I agree.

    I see, the I was contemplating on having the same guy do it from best buy, but last time he took the scraping tool that comes with the zagg and was going at it by the lens, Idk if hit did a small-little microscopic, 20/20 vision scratch on the front camera, but the back lens was perfect, when I ask him to be careful, he said the iphone 4 has a tough scratchproof screen.

    Make that idiot replace your phone. If they screw it up, they HAVE to replace it.

    I haven't had one smudge, and I haven't had one turn yellow since they updated their products a few months ago.

    It works with mine It just takes some moving around. I haven't tried it with a legit bumper though.

    I even ordered a knock off bumper from ebay ($0.01 ) and it works with that.

    Yea, I would have, but he said they dont have any iphone 4's in stock, and also, I bought the iphone 4 at another best buy 4 hours from where I live lol.

    If I have enough patience, is it quite simple to put on myself, or can I risk water-damaging the phone or anything? Because I know I'm going to be careful not to scrap along the front camera/back camera, and take precaution with it.

    Any best buy can/will replace invisashield's/iphones. Doesn't matter where you bough it. I bought my invisashield an hour away from where I live, but I recently had my invisashield replaced at my local best buy.

    It comes with some alchohol-based liquid which they say is fine to use on phones, I literally dump it onto my phones and never have any problems, I turn my phone on 5 mins after installation and no water damage problems. The key to installation is to use the liquid they provide, and abuse it, don't worry about water damage, just spray all over. It will make it a lot easier

    Thanks for the info. So what if they mess up, and dont have any iphone 4's in stock? And do I have to pay them again to put it on?

    oh I just got a replacement from apple, this is 3rd iphone 4 I've gone through from them lol. Will I be out of luck taking it to apple again if they screw it up? Because I'm really leaning on doing it myself lol, and I'm willing to take a good hour going slowly and being careful by the front camera and back camera.

    If you have Best Buy do it, the liability is on them.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not saying you are incapable of doing it. What I am saying is that this REALLY difficult

    Apple will replace your phone all day long if you want. I had 9 3GS iphones. I am on iphone 4 number 2.

    wow. I really dont mind best buy doing it, the thing is I think they might have scratched the front camera of my last iphone (not like a a bad scratch, not even a hair scratch, you literally have to put the light on it,I can't even capture it if I took a pic with a high tech camera lol, but if they dont scrape the any front/back lens to dry the bubbles, I guess I can live with it lol.
