There goes my Thunderbolt. :(
I ordered a Seidio Surface Innocase II and an Invisible Shield screen protector. I kept the solution away from all of the ports and my screen has splotches all over when the screen it turned on.
There goes $99. I have never had these problems with installing the Invisible Shield. Thank god for insurance. I'm not using another Invisible Shield ever again though.

Thanks, but that's what insurance is for. I never drop my phones so insurance is usually pointless. However, I'm so glad I kept it on my account now that this happened. Still, a waste of $99 plus the Invisible Shield. Oh well, what can you do?

ive been installing Zagg branded screen protectors on phones/laptops/tablets for over a year now and never once ruined one by "over saturating" it. im really surprised this happened, sucks to hear as well. Most of the time i spray the hell out of the screen protector and slightly wet the screen itself and i never had any problems.

sigh, I JUST ordered the Zagg during the Best Buy midnight sale last week as I didn't see too many people seem to have this sort of issue... but now I'm scared. I've applied a few InvisibleShields but almost always as outer protection, not directly to screens or anything.
I just wish I knew what a GOOD screen protector was, the stupid Verizon ones smudge any time I actually use my phone as a phone, it sounded like the InvisibleShields were the best from not getting covered in fingerprints/oils/etc. (and I am really picky about only using my phone when my hands are almost entirely clean, it just streaks like mad unless I wash my hands seconds before using it.. :/ ) Are the Steinheil ones a bit more smudge proof than the VZWs?
(and Best Skins Ever isn't really a good alternative as they need water to apply as well)

Just an update.
I received my HTC Thunderbolt today and I couldn't be happier. The device is not refurbished but rather a brand new device. I received the device in it's original OEM box with all of the included accessories. I now have a spare plug, 32 GB SD Card, Battery, etc.
Insurance is definitely worth it when this happens. The only issue I have is that my phone just took the new update from Verizon. My old device never did but that's fine. I hope I don't have any issues.

Steinheil screen protectors utilize a dry application. I have tried Bodyguardz, Zagg and Phantom Skins and I have found that Steinheil is by far the easiest to install and has held up really well. I was always skeptical of applying the "solution" to my $500 plus dollar device for that reason.HTC Thunderbolt, Droid Incredible, Moto Droid
