You know, if using other body parts on a fingerprint scanner is your thing. And, no, we're not going to show you.
Also: Damn, that phone gets cold.
I was gonna use something else, but the sensor isn't big enough. Bazinga.
Can you unlock an HTC One with other people's nipples?
Phil does it matter whether it's cold or not?
Never had a need to lock my phone since cell phones were sold.
I suppose ones family and friends would be a factor or ones ability to set an expensive piece of equipment down and leave it.
What happened to face unlock?

My S-Pen went through hell to deliver this important message to you
Tits or it didn't happen

Does it work if you're lactating?

I guess this job isn't all fun and games. Someone needs to do the "hard" news... Is it cold in here?
This is nothing new. I've been rubbing my phone on my nipple for years
Good one Phil! This made my day.... Just got off work and was in line at Publix when I burst out laughing. Even the cashier wanted to see!

Something I really wanted to know but didn't know how to ask.....thanks Phil!
Alas it seems we've found the purpose of men's nipples: unlocking phones.
I lol'd all over myself when I read the title.
Do you need a wet-nap?
Should be a version of that Surface RT vs iPad commercial, but instead the HTC One Max vs iPhone 5s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE7AQY5Xk9w
Oh no, here we go again.
I'm sorry I don't have an SD card slot.
Oh snap, you have a fingerprint scanner too?
This isn't going to end well for me, is it?
Do you still think I'm pretty?
Phil, you do have to turn that back in to HTC, right? Quick question: will you or will you not tell them about your little 'experiment'?
I can just see the confused look on the HTC rep's face now: "Huh....why does this phone smell like Axe?"
Oh Phil ...
Can you Face Unlock with your whole chest?
It would be a great ice breaking question at a bar...and it could also make for a great snickers commercial (sometimes you have to get away)
I bet some other parts can be used...
Right, like a...... Toe.

I think you guys need some nexus 5 news to report for something else to do.
Waaaaay too much information
A phone that can be unlocked with your nipples? SOLD!!
Hahahaha! I knew as soon I posted that, it was on...
By the way, what does it look like while someone has it up to their ear trying to talk on it?
Depends what you mean by "ear".
Um, why would you talk to Phil's nipple?
Why wouldn't you
I never thought of it that way. Phil, please call me.
If you have a contest to give this away at some point, please be kind enough to include disinfectant.
Lmao! Best comment ever!
Sure you are glamrlama...lol
I still say it is a useless security feature. These are easily fooled, so anyone with a photograph of your nipple pretty much has full access.
And besides, how do we know nipple prints are as unique as finger prints?
Damn. That means ANYONE can get into my phone.
Do piercings interfere with this method? I'm asking for a friend.
This and all the other ratchet comments. Lmao can't deal.
Tea bagging your phone will be a thing now. Maybe they should patent it, "Drop to unlock"
HAH!!!!! Nice abs workout from keeping the laughter in on that one.....
My, what a big phone you have...
Is this a segue into an AC After Dark special?
Ha! I should have read your post before I did mine.....you beat me to it!
I was at least expecting a gif.
Me too... or at the very least a picture of hairy man titties pressed against a screen. Pics or it didn't happen!
I'm easy — but I'm not that easy.
Sounds like this might be a money making opportunity. Maybe start a kickstarter for Android device nipple unlocking tutorials for ten thousand and see what happens.
Or of a shirt with a flap covering the nipple, where you can easily lift the flap to expose the nipple and unlock the device :)
Shouldn't this be under "android after dark"? I come here for the pictorals......erh I mean the articles. I can't believe you would put something like that where so many people can.....blah blah blah....seriously funny stuff Phil.
Let's see after a few beers
I really don't want to know why you decided to try ... or what else may unlock it... There does of course have to be some use for a scanner next to a camera.. no.. no.. just wrong.
Great post on an unfortunately boring day...
Yeah, I thought today was the big day. At least that's what so many posts around here made it seem like.
Which ones? I wasn't aware we'd done any. :p
My same exact reaction.....I read AC everyday and had no idea today was "a big day" lol
Halloween would be ideal for a kit kat release ;-)
Or thanksgiving. Or Christmas. Or even valentines day next year. Since kit kats would be a nice treat for that. I don't mind waiting.
Yum, want me some of that
I don't want to know what else Phil tried to unlock it with. And you probably never want to borrow his phone. Lol
it better if the 5s can do it!!
