    It took me awhile to get it to work...I had something wrong in the settings...but now that it is functional, I love it! I've even downloaded a few items in the App store with my fingerprint.

    Pretty overwhelming support so far (25 yes, 6 not sure, and 0 no). Apple got this one right, it seems.

    I had to register the same finger multiple times and save them all so that it would work reliably.

    To the two who voted "no": Come out from hiding and explain yourselves!

    Working flawlessly for me.

    Sigh - I do this as well... I'm still in training mode to remember to use touch ID instead of swipe to unlock. I've done swipe to unlock for so long now that it's been a very hard habit to break.

    It took me a while to realize I shouldn't press the button for the scan .. just set my finger gently on the button.

    Once I started doing that, it's been working flawlessly. :D

    I'm wondering how it will work with my hands. Sometimes they get dried on the tips which makes some fine wrinkles. I hope that doesn't disrupt the sensor. I guess I'll have to start using lotion :p

    It feels faster than having no passcode. With no passcode, you still have to hit button, then swipe to unlock. Touch ID, just press button and hold finger, unlocked almost instantly.

    I don't doubt your posts, but perhaps it's just a matter of figuring out the best way to touch the rings and the center. I long have had issues with older fingerprint scanners (I once had a client who used them instead of ID badges and I ALWAYS had issues), but Touch ID has been a dream by comparison.

    ----------

    That's what I like about it. My employer requires a passcode as part of our enterprise profile. It could get very cumbersome. Happily, Touch ID seems to be compatible with our profile (I was worried I'd miss out on a nice new feature). It's just one more thing to make the phone easier to use.

    It's flawless, and fantastically implement imo. I now lock and unlock my phone 10x for no apparent reason.

    haha ive done that a few times, the swipe to unlock. but as soon as you hold your finger down on the scanner it will populate the passcode field with ur password and tada!
