    I threw my screen protectors away because of this, and the fact that they were crap anyway.

    I managed to get both of the screen protectors on, but I took the one off the bottom cuz it screwed up my touch sensitivity. But I managed without too much of a problem.

    There wasn't really any technique to it, I just took my time and was careful about it.

    Over a year later and they're still working fine.

    Use compressed air (Dust Away or equivalent) to blow away all the dust, and if you are desperate, run a hot shower in the background for a while.

    They really aren't that hard to get on. If you are using some kind of shitty ones, you should replace them away. You can also use scotch tape to get dust off them (this won't work with actual adhesive(gluey)-based screen protectors like those from Pelican)

    Wipe the screen clean first, then put it on one side first and rub with a cloth, which should push all the bubbles out on the part you place first.

    I've done my ndsl, phone, friend's psp and my ipod and I've never had troubles, this is how I do it

    remove all dirt from the screen
    peel off 1/2 of the screen protector, holding the unpeeled side
    line it up and make sure you get it on the right spot the first time
    apply til half way, with one hand remove the bubbles by using the width of a credit hard
    put your hand on the applied side and then peel off the remaining half, BUT LEAVE 1 CM TO HOLD ONTO, apply that and then remove bubbles, apply the rest.

    I had a protector on my PHAT! It worked splendidly... The first few times I had some bubbles and dust under it. But after washing it with some soap and water everything went fine.

    I tried it also with my DS Lite, but took it off immediately. My touch screen is a bit 'lazy' and with the protector attached it felt more like a PUSH screen rather than a touch screen.

    Oh and watch out when you want to try the "soap and water" technique. Some have said that if you make the protector wet with soap water it's a breeze putting it on. Well, that's true, I tried it. But after that my touch screen stopped working. Only after several severe screen rubs it started working again.
