Keeping Your Screen Scratch Free without digging a hole in your Pocket

I have a cost effective solution to keep your phone's screen free from scratches...


WARNING!!!! PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND DO NOT BLAME ME IF IN CASE ANYTHING GOES WRONG!!!


This was how my phone looked before removing the cellophane tape...

I guess now you can find the defference



My E61's Scratchless screen :-)


Make sure you clean the screen properly with a soft cloth

The apparatus required are


Water(Yes you are reading it right)


Paper Cutter


Scissors

And most important is the cellophane tape which is big enough to fit the screen as shown below

First switch off your phone and if you are not sure of yourself, remove the battery also.

Then carefully put drops of water on the screen alone, making sure that it does not fall on keyboard and other places which may penetrate through the body to the inside

Water is required to avoid the airbubles while placing the tape.

Make sure you place the tape slowly and spread the water droplets to avoid air bubbles, However this is an advanced task and needs practice. I followed the same procedure for all my phones and so I can do this without switching off the phone.. :-)


Then carefully cut out the tape using the paper cutter, by slicing it through the screen's border.

At first the screen may look a little blurred because of the water, but carefully wipe the screen and switch on the phone... However the blur may dissappear after an hour or so since the water has to evaporate...

Enjoy with your new scratchless screen...

Please note that this procedure needs practice and you may end up with air bubbles...etc.. Trial and error method is the only solution... :-)

I might suggest using a credit card or something similar to spread the tape and avoid the formation of bubbles...

P.S: I'll do it to my E61 as soon as I get it, thanks for the guide!
