    AT&T started allowing FaceTime over cellular for unlimited plans back in May. Go to your setting and it may already be turned on. In iOS 7 it's under the cellular menu.

    If the fingerprint sensor is built into the digitizer glass it could be the reason for an incompatible display assembly. iPhone 4 GSM, iPhone 4 CDMA, and iPhone 4S all had compatible displays, you only had to switch the frame, but we already know that iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 have completely different wiring for the display assembly. Some say the change is because they had issues manufacturing enough volume with the In-Cell tech on the iPhone 5 display but I wonder if it's something more.

    Edit: Hmm... guess it's simply part of the button after all. Does the signalling route through the display cables?

    Logic tells me that the scanner IS the home button. I mean, why wouldn't it be? You want to have a whole separate piece just to unlock your phone? There is no room for it.

    I see. So it seems like I may be correct? It only makes sense to me.

    It's going to be in the home button but sources say that you have to hold your thumb there for a few seconds to unlock the phone. I can swipe and enter my 4-digit pass code just as fast if not faster.

    although you could already be placing your thumb on the button as you pull it out of your pocket. That way, it could already be unlocked by the time you look at the screen!

    They made it support more than just thumbs... I don't have to sue them on behalf of the thumbless.
