    I have to clean my home button often or my finger print scanner doesn't work well.
    I heard this is pretty common.
    Maybe if ones fingers are very dirty or oily, otherwise I don't see how this is a common problem. I set my fingerprint scanner up yesterday. Haven't cleaned my home button once and it unlocks perfectly every time.

    I get that at times too. Sometimes it can't even recognise my print and it won't even say " try again". The phone would just go dim.

    Whenever I get this message it has always been the result of not putting my finger on the home button correctly. Putting my finger on it again with the right amount of pressure always works.

    I think 2 popints of view here. First of all my phone 4S at present and 5S in about 2 weeks stays in a fairly well enclosed case so the only clean i worry about is the screen prints even with a Zagg Screen protector on it. I take it out of the case one time a month only to just get hidden dust that can still get into the case.

    The other point being besides the screen people talking about spit and pants and shirt corners kindafreaks me a bit that you would use this or do this to a phone you are looking to keep pristine, unscratched and clean. What do you suppose clothing and such besides a microfiber cloth which is all I use has or made of....?? Scratchy material that is going to be worse, At least use Micro fiber cloths and the slightest bit of clean water, nothing else. Think about it as it relates to you and not the other weird things others seem to be doing and I am not trying to be or come of critical here.

    I have found it has to do with oil build up on my button. I can see my print on the button usually when it doesn't work. A little added pressure does help though.

    I'll take a alcohol wipe to it and roll some microfiber towel on it, that's pretty much my cleaning process

    Compulsively. I carry small microfiber cloth (for shades, glasses, and iThings). Makes me twitchy to see smudges on any of these!

    I guess we all like "clean" objects. I've never placed my iPhone on the counter with no case. I'm pretty OCD with everything.

    If you buy your iPhone out right or are you on plan? I've noticed people like myself who bought it outright obsess about keeping the phone in emasculate condition. It cost good money.

    All I do is wipe mine on my shirt or pants when the screen gets greasy or my camera when I'm about to use it. I've never CLEANED my phone unless I bought a phone off of someone or if someone that's not family has used my phone. I'm a germaphobe, and slight OCD so you'd think I was more clean with it but it's whatever. I already wash my hands like crazy. Lmao I do need to get some wipes for my cases though because I'm constantly sitting my phone down on a table someplace like school, bank or store.

    I usually just wipe it, using a soft cloth or my shirt when it gets too many fingerprints.
