Sometimes accidents can happen, simply reach out to our support (firstname.lastname@example.org), or live chat and tell them the issue. They will request a copy of your receipt or order # and at that point after verifying everything, issue you another activation code.
I am getting bubbles, or a corner is lifting up from my temper glass.
Don't panic that means the glass is not lined up correctly. You can lift the glass up again CAREFULLY, not touching the glue or get dust on it, and try to let it down again pushing out the bubbles. Remember when you install it you are putting the top piece of the case on first, using that as your guide (most models) You may also take off the top case and then smooth out the bubbles, then put the top piece of the case back on. If none of those work, email@example.com and we will get you out another one and walk you thru it on the phone.
My ShieldX2 has not arrived?
