    Got a 4S with 5.0.1.

    The option to turn on the Nike+ app is greyed out and I cant toggle it on. All the options in the Settings app are greyed out as well. Am I missing something? Isn't every iPhone since the 3GS supposed to have a built in receiver? I have the sensor in a pair of my Nike's.

    What gives?

    Well, I guess I am making an appointment -- on the apple forums an individual said he had to get a new phone to make it work!

    Did you ever find a fix? I'm having the same problem with Nike+ and my iPhone 4s running iOS 5.0.1.

    No, but I'm going into the Apple store today -- and we'll see what happens.

    I used to use Nike+ with the sensor, but the I found Nike+gps on the app store, and it's much better. It uses more battery, as it's constantly polling the gps, but it hasn't been a problem for me.

    Of course, this is only really useful if you are running outside; if you are in a gym on a machine then the sensor is the way to go.

    Wasn't too bad. Bu the bad news -- they said it was likely because I restored from a previous iPhone when I upgraded. Clean wipe and reinstall everything. Doing that now.

    Completely setting it up as a new phone fixed my problem. You're mileage may vary.

    I'm able to turn on the Nike+ app, but am getting stuck after that. The 'Sensor' option is grayed out, and the actual app crashes immediately on launch. I've tried restarting the phone, and toggling the Nike+ app on and off. Nothing will let me pair a sensor.

    Has anyone else encountered this? Any hints?

    That is basically the issue I had.

    Restore as New was the fix.

    I can launch the app nike+ that comes as default with the 4s.
    But as soon as I start it, it asks for calibration of the sensor.
    A voice tell me to start walking to calibrate the sensor. But I don't have the sensor on the shoes, I thought I didn't need it any more with the 4s. Do I have to download a different application? the iphone automatically downloaded the app by itself as soon as I activated nike+ in the settings

    For the built-in one you need the shoes that accept the sensor and you need to buy the sensor.

    Your looking for Nike+GPS which is a $2.99 purchase in the app store and works with the gyrometer, accelormeter, and GPS -- and doesn't require Nike shoes or the sensor :)

    Nike+GPS is what I use, it's rock solid.

    I guess I'm behind on the times. I still run with an iPod nano (3rd generation) with an attached receiver. It's in a Nike made arm sleeve that has room for the receiver to be attached while it's on your arm. It's extremely light weight and barely notice it after a couple of miles.

    Anyway, is there a benefit to switch to the iPhone or would be the same?

    With the built in iPhone app about the same. The Nike+gps app has a lot more functionality.
