Hi Mark,

All my settings are turned off, there's nothing wrong with the phone, & this 
has stumped the Apple engineers.  I spent about 1 hour on the phone with 
them in which they had access to my iPhone via screen share, but as I said, 
has them stumped.  The next time this message pops up I will take a screen 
cap / shot of the message, & call them to see if this helps at all.  I will 
keep y'all up to date when I find out something.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hello Mike,

I suggest that this is, in fact, an error message.

As I do not know the history of your device, I would argue that it was 
physically damaged, sometime in the past, and was not properly repaired. 
There is no need for you to confirm this for, regardless, I recommend that 
you contact Apple as some kind of maintenance is required.

The only other recommendation I can offer, short of contacting Apple, would 
be to install a fresh copy of iOS on the device via iTunes.  If such a step 
did not resolve the issue, then I would argue that your device has been 
seriously compromised and I, personally, would never use such a device for 
fear of having my personal data exposed.

Good Luck,

Mark

Hi Mark,

It's not an error message, well at least it doesn't seem to be an error 
message, but just a message stating that the touch ID & passcode can't be 
activated on this phone.  The settings are in Touch iD & Passcode, under 
Use touch ID for, iPhone unlock is off, Apple Pay is off, iTunes & App store 
is off, then under the Fingerprint heading, I've never added a fingerprint 
or turned on  / addedthe a passcode.  All the other settings after these 
buttons are dimmed / not accessible.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hello Mike,

I am unclear as to what settings you could possibly configure in order to 
prevent such an error message but I strongly suggest that you contact Apple 
tech support either on the phone or in person in order to address this 
matter.

Hi All,

I'm running a S E iPhone 6 with iOS 10.33.  Whenever I start my phone I get 
the message stating, the touch ID cannot be activated on this phone.  I've 
got all the necessary settings turned to keep this message from appearing, 
but it still does.  Is there anything else I can do to keep it from coming 
up when I turn my phone on?  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks 
much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
