Apple Is Sued Over New iPhone Reception

Thursday Jul 1st 2010 by Staff

Customers filed suit in San Francisco and Maryland alleging that Apple was negligent in marketing the iPhone 4 when it was a defective product.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek: Several individuals have filed lawsuits against Apple in San Francisco and Maryland because of reception problems with the iPhone 4. Shortly after the product's debut, customers began complaining that signal strength decreased if they covered the lower left corner of the phone while making a call.

“Apple’s sale of the iPhone with this unannounced defect, assuming Apple’s prior knowledge of the defect, constitutes misrepresentation and fraud,” Christopher Dydyk of Cambridge, Massachusetts, said in his complaint. “In omitting to disclose the defect in the iPhone 4, Apple perpetrated a massive fraud upon hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting customers.”
