FaceBook IPhone App Check In Feature Not Working?

I got my IPhone4 a few days ago and have installed a few apps. The FaceBook App for the IPhone4 enables you to "check in" with your current location like the 4Square.com idea. Mine was working then it stopped, I tried a bunch of stuff. I tried turning off my IPhone, reinstalling the FaceBook application and so on. Finally I found a solution to the stupid problem.

What worked to fix FaceBook check in :

  1. Go to settings>
  2. general>
  3. reset>
  4. reset location warnings

Other people have had success getting check in working this way:

Go to Settings -> Location Services -> Turn FB on

If either of those solutions don't work you can check here.

    You Sir, are a genius. I haven’t been able to use Check-in since I first put the App on my iPhone. Brilliant!

    I feel like an idiot – I have the iPhone 4 and I cannot correct this issue. I went to my FB icon. I clicked Account. I selected Account Setting. I cannot find the General ara. I looked under the Privacy Settings button as well. What am I missing?

    I did the reset and it still wouldn’t work. I WAS able to make it work by click on the “settings” buttin with the update status screen and clicked friends only. Then it let me post. I guess you have to set that before it will work.
