Apple, AT&T hit with another iPhone lawsuit

Apple iPhone lawsuit 4

Another lawsuit against Apple and AT&T is hitting the courts, with New York resident Jai Sen crying foul over both companies' advertising of the iPhone 3G, software problems, and cracks in the device's chassis. The lawsuit comes through the US District Court for the Eastern district of New York, and encompasses a class-action perspective, with other plaintiffs simply referred to as "others similarly situated."

Sen asserts that he, as well as many others, has followed advice given by both AT&T and Apple representatives, in addition to claims made on ads for the device. Sen echoes concerns about the build quality of the chassis - which is known to experience small stress cracks along the lip - quitting applications and reception issues.

He also points to the lack of Flash and Java support, as well as much less than "twice" the speed; both claims were submitted through the iPhone's various advertisements.

The lawsuit asks for the return of funds to those affected for any iPhones that exhibit the above issues, as well as judgment that Apple and AT&T are employing unlawful and unfair methods to advertise the device.

This suit marks the fourth so far, all of which pertain to similar issues of anti-trust behavior.

    30 day return

    30 day return period I believe? If you keep it past that time, you do so knowingly

    Like New Condition

    I think that is the issue. You can't return it within 30days if it is not in like new conditions. Stress cracks would not make the iphone like new condition, hence you can't return it.

    Stupidness

    is it me or is it just stupid that when Apple is successful every sue happy idiot comes out of the closet to make a dollar. How come when the Blackberry was successful no one was trying to sue them?
