Apple, AT&T Hit With Second 3G Speed Lawsuit
Yet another lawsuit has been filed against Apple concerning the representation of the data speeds of the iPhone 3G in their latest TV ads. This suit, which was filed by Sames Pittman on November 26, 2008 in the United States District Court, Northern District of California, San Jose Division, accuses the iPhone of being a defective product, blaming 3G speeds on a faulty chipset and/or firmware.
He also claims that 3G mode on the device causes voice service to become unreliable, resulting in things like dropped calls.
Charges include Negligent Misrepresentation, Violation of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, Violation of the Consumer legal Remedies Act, Unjust Enrichment, and Unfair Competition in Violation of Business and Professions Code.
He is seeking class-action status since users were required to sign a contract with AT&T.
