    So a couple months ago I post a thread about how my trackpad stopped working and how I could fix it. One reply suggested I CPO it at Verizon. I tried that and here is what i came up with...

    The clerk was about ready to set me up with a CPO and mentioned, "As long as it's not damaged or wet, you should be fine". So I remembered that I had put on an invisibleSHIELD from ZAGG and prior to putting it on, you need to wet the film. Around the trackpad button, I remember some of the liquid went in the cracks but i didn't think much of it. So I mentioned this to the clerk and he said "yea that will void it and you'll get billed the full retail price if you do a CPO" so I declined it.

    Has this happened to anyone or know for sure that using invisibleSHIELD will void your ability to CPO?

    Tip of the talk, you shouldnt have mentioned doing a wet apply. Although i dont see that it would have caused an issue,/if you kept the battery out and let the phone dry for a day or two like Zagg recommends.

    Still, i think it was either wrong or stupid of the rep to deny you a cpo claim because of a screen protector. Did he tell you that wet applications are an issue? Have you read anywhere that they can cause damage? Do other people have issues with wet applying a zagg breaking parts?

    Id take your phone to another store and keep hush about that. By all means lie if you have to.

    I also have the invisible shield. The stuff they use isnt water. Its an electronic friendly activation solution to active the sticky stuff on the back of the screen protector. It shouldnt cause any issues.

    is it really elctoni friendly!? i put my shield on like just 5 mins ago and freaked out bc i saw all the water go down by the trackpad and i didnt know what to do!! haha. it wont damage any of the internal parts? also the microbubbles under the shield (the ones i struggled to get out but absolutley couldnt) they make the screen a little blurry in certain places. will they go away???

    Should be. These are just my assumptions. A company that large shouldnt be bottling water for electronics.

    From their FAQ's

    What I find interesting is that if you go to Zagg's site Verizon is listed as a dealer for them. If they void warranty why do they carry their products? Id raise that issue with them.

    For the microbubbles you should be able to use a hair dryer on them and they should squeeze right out. I had the guys at Best Buy do mine when I bought my phone. They do it for free.

    well is there even such thing as electronic friendly liquids? and also you mean just hit the whole phone with a blow dryer? ike take out my battery and point the hair dryer at the screen with the shield on it and then use the squeegie to press em out? could heating ti liek that be hazardous to the material of the shield or the phone itself?

    Sure are electronic friendly liquids. Id take the battery out. When you do window tint on a vehicle you heat the film to get the bubbles out. I assume it should be the same concept here. Or you can wet your fingers and life and re-squeegee the film until its perfect.

    but other than that it shouldnt be hazardous to the internal components or the screen itself to heat it correct?

    I dont think it would, but to be safe make sure you start off at a fair distance on low heat. As your heating make sure you move it and dont hold it in one spot. The plastic backing may warp if it gets too hot.

    Id turn it off and remove the battery and let it sit for a bit to make sure its totally dried out.

    I had a cat spill a water bottle on my laptop last year and I immediately unplugged it and took all the important pieces I could out of it. I put a box fan on it to dry it out. Try a bag of rice or something and it may speed the drying process along.
