    Apple Sued Over iPhone 3G by Unhappy Customer from Alabama

    Advertisement




    Have a look at Birmingham Alabama's At&T 3G coverage

    Although AT&T's coverage map shows good coverage in Birmingham area, which may suggest reception issues with the iPhone itself. Let the courts sort this one out :]

    Via PCMag:

    An Alabama woman has filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple over reception and speed problems with its iPhone 3G. Birmingham resident Jessica Alena Smith purchased an iPhone 3G in July after numerous advertisements touted the device's increased speeds.

    Smith, who had owned a first generation iPhone, said the new device appeared to connect to the 3G standard less than 25 percent of the time and frequently dropped her calls.

    "One could barely turn on the television without hearing that the new iPhone 3G was 'twice as fast for half the price,'" according to the suit. But once she started using the phone, Smith's Internet connection, e-mail, and text messages were "slower than expected and advertised," according to the suit.

    I am so glad that when i broke the screen on my 8700 i went ahead and got another BB instead of the iphone like i had thought about doing. If the phone wont work in a big city it would be virtually worthless in rural Miss where i'm at.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ha ha that's good news for R.I.M shows they have more experience in this game hince the bold being postponed at this point I'm not mad at them they'll get there's right while apple jumped the gun its funny I haven't heard good things about the Iphone 3g don't get me wrong its partly AT&T's fault I think they may have jumped the gun on there 3g network and I'm an AT&T customer so I'm sure the bold will be fine by its final release date infact I'm sure cause we all know they don't want the nation on their butts

    We also have the iphone in canada now but I'm not sure if new brunswick gets 3g or not, kind of a waste for people who buy it here or anywheres for that matter if they can't even use it

    I can tell you this will go nowhere!

    Plus she filed this complaint against the wrong company!!!

    Service issues are with ATT and device issues are with apple.

    Coverage maps aren't perfect and companies state that in the fine print and have ways to cover their own rear ends!

    I mean I personally sell the iphone and think they should have given it flash support, and without it, its a waste!!

    My BJ2 with skyfire browser makes the iphone look like a babies toy since it really has no limitations! I can stream movies on my BJ2 without it ever stopping or delaying and webpages load just like real time with background music(if available) and videos playing.
    I can't wait for skyfire to launch browser for BB!!

    Good for her. Wish I had the money to sue all of the companies that I bought defective products from. I wonder what it cost her to do this? Anyway ROLL TIDE!!

    Another frivolous lawsuit hits the court system. And doesn't AT&T have a 30 trial for what you buy also?

    This irritates the hell out of me.

    Oh teh noee3s$111!!!11!! Let's sue!

    this doesn't surprise me. it was bound to happen eventually.

    it's like how people buy TVs with 1080p HD capabilities, but don't receive an HD signal from their cable/satellite provider. (or vice-versa, an HD signal sans an HD television..)

    read the fine print, people. it's a fool's paradise.
