I would definitely not do the sides first. I did the front first, but in
retrospect it might have been better to do the back first. I would most
certainly do the sides last (they were the easy part.) 

You may be recalling that the thread (i'm just speculating here) said that the 
tabs on the side were hard (the folds from the top and bottom piece, not the
long strips that go along the side). These will not want to bend and you will 
have to constantly push them down for 30 minutes or so. Just be patient.

If I were to reapply mine, I'd wait a day to do the sides, and make sure the
front and back pieces were situated adequately.

Last bit of advice, pay some extra attention to aligning the front and back. The
front is a bit harder to screw up because there are holes to help you align it,
but the back is a bit more error prone. My back is slightly higher than it
should be and there is some slight overlap of it and the strip along the top of
the phone.

That all said, I'm very pleased with the invisible shield, and two of my
colleagues have been impressed enough to order them for their phones.
