    Tell me about it. I'm trying so hard to untrained myself from swiping.

    Even if you swipe and end up at the pass code screen, I do it all the time too. You can still use the scanner to open your phone. No need to type a pass code.

    Actually, right now, I keep picking up my 4S or 5 and wondering why it doesn't unlock with my finger.....

    I catch myself doing this and getting mad because the screen isn't responding. D'oh!

    I started doing pretty good last night, then woke up this morning and immediately swiped and entered my password. I've been told it takes 1000-2000 repetitions for something to become muscle memory...got a long way to go.

    See, now this is a good argument for the iPads to have the fingerprint scanner. LOL!

    You never know! It could be the wave of the future for Apple. Security across the board for all products! That would actually rock! I'd love to see it. Then not only will Apple computers be toted as some of the most secure as far as viruses are concerned. We all know there have been but not as bad as PC's. Now with finterprint technology, all Apple products are theft proof! LOL! Oh what a future that would be!

    Well a *good* password is actually more secure than a fingerprint, and osx requires a password already. But a fingerprint is a lot better than nothing, which is what most people had on iOS.
