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?

Hmm.

I wonder how this is actually going to work. I mean Facebook has not even developed a working app that doesnt force close, lag, and or "network disconnect" all the time.

I would like to see a functional app first Smile.

I can't wait

for all the calls to start coming in for data overage issues that this is going to cause when parents buy these for a kid and put them on a 300mb plan

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?

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.

Battery Killer

sounds like if you use this new facebook home battery life will be even worse. Not only a live wallpaper but using data as long as your screen is on. Come on no one can seriously believe this is a good idea can they.

All smartphones look the same, can be move on?

Considering that every single smartphone is virtually identical to every other smartphone out there, and considering that only a fool would fail to put their smartphone into a protective device, is it really necessary to articulate the look of them? It's one thing to describe the size since that's not immediately apparent, but, lawdy, can we get real and admit that all of these phone look virtually identical? Just throw up a few pics, and talk about the specs instead.

I Hate Facebook

I hate Facebook. It disgusts me that here is an entire phone asked around it. I will be very apply when this fad ends and I read of Zuckerberg's inevitable fatal overdose.

Ugh

Dumb, irrelevant, pointless, stupid, redundant, etc. I can go and on and on. Haven't they learned from the Cha Cha? Nobody wants a Facebook phone. Nobody.

Can't wait for the targeted lock-screen ads!

So much more-useful than lock-screen widgets or shortcuts ;-)

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.

No go

Who needs more facebook? It is just for kids. I do not even post anymore because of how my feed is. Way to much junk I do not want to see and apps galore.

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.
