    Mine works if I use any other programmed finger besides my right thumb(which is my main finger used to unlock it). It slowly started deteriorating after a couple months of use. Seems like it has worn out it's welcome - LOL. I have not tried deleting it and reprogramming it yet though.

    Sometimes I press and remove(would say less than a sec) the Home Button to wake-up the iPhone and check what time it is... and it gets unlocked -_- lol..

    When Apple announced Touch ID, I thought it was another business gimmick, but so far, this has been my favourite feature yet. Working great. Almost always works, even if it didn't the first time, the second time will work 99% of the time and I am not exaggerating.

    Right on cue, 2 weeks have passed and recognition has deteriorated to about 33%. Time to re-register my prints. So far, for me at least, the 2 week cycle is very consistent

    As an update, after retraining my fingers it works almost flawlessly again. I don't mind having to retrain it between seasons, if that's what it comes to.

    Mine doesn't have any problems, the accuracy is incredible. I must say, the latest updates have been improving its accuracy and performance. It hasn't been an issue

    My Touch ID works flawlessly unless of course my hands are sweaty but that's how it's supposed to be. Love my gold 5s!

    I had a bad day with TouchID yesterday. Failure rate was about 80%. I have no clue what was up, but today it's working perfectly again. Go figure.

    Mine was erratic! Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I got it replaced yesterday and it's night and day difference!

    Works great for me. The app store asks to enter password to reestablish more than i would like. But thats not really an issue.
    I find if you firmly press the home button with your associated finger it will unlock the iPhone every time.

    Now that temperature and humidity have stabilized it works consistently. I will be able to test the environmental effect hypothesis when I travel to other climates this winter

    Only time it doesnt work for me is when my finger is sweaty after running, this is very consistent. Also it doesnt work at all when its inside my armband which has a clear plastic cover. Otherwise it works great 100% of the time 95% of the time!
