Apple Airport Extreme compatibility

Cannot get my daughters HTC First to connect to my home wireless network. I'm using an Apple AirPort Extreme. I've tried restarting the AE. The phone will attempt to connect, but fails with "Authorization problem". Any ideas?

Security

Sure, normally losing your smartphone is pretty bad, but losing a smartphone that you have Facebook Home enabled on? That would be just downright horrible. Think of all the ADDITIONAL accesses the person who has your device is able to see. Not only can they now see all your contacts, but they will know who your close personal friends are, have access to your facebook inbox and messages too.

No way.

I would NEVER put my life into a smartphone, why not just give out your credit card information to the public?
You can have it go to your lock screen before going to Facebook home.
How is it that different from having the Facebook app on your phone?
With most people no longer having unlimited data this phone is going to a major headache when it comes to peoples bills. We are having to constantly remind people to logout of facebook to avoid the chance of going over because of all the updates peopl...

Facebook is turning into a cult. Seriously.

Facebook is a handy tool for keeping in touch with people, but that's all it is: a tool. Because of this I see this Facebook Home as being a phenomenal waste of resources doing nothing but reinventing wheels that didn't need reinventing. I already find Facebook too easy to use and too accessible so I've basically disabled it.

Sadly this Facebook Home will likely be a hit because of the sheer number of people whose lives literally revolve around this website to the point that they have no life. There are people in this world who literally can't bare the thought of spending an extra 3 seconds in order to see an faded old-time-ie Instagram-edited photo of their best friend's college roommate's former neighbor's lunch.
Very well put, sir. I agree completely. Facebook has become an image gallery.
I 100% agree. If you let yourself, you can become pretty much a slave to facebook. With all the offerings they have, its easy.

I don't let myself become that. I don't want to be one of the people who is out at a restauraunt with my family / friend...

Just a homescreen replacement app

but that being said a lot of android users like homescreen replacement apps. and this is probably the best, most well done homescreen replacement app. I am much more interested in this than a facebook phone. I am curious to see whether that HTC phone that was discussed will have the option of turning off facebook home and just use default launcher.

Not understanding

I think this is a really pathetic application. The only thing i like is "chat head"
Not one of my FB friends uses the chat. Useless.

No, thanks

Have facebook run my phone, and have instant access to everything that I do with my homescreens and camera ? No thanks, this is way too intrusive. The current setup for facebook is fine unless you want it taking over your phone.
If it's a launcher I'll give it a try because then it can be deleted. I currently looking for a good launcher to replace sense.
