Apple And AT&T Sued (Again) Over Allegedly Shoddy 3G Performance


Posted March 20, 2009 - By r_pad

Apple and AT&T are being sued (again) for the latter's spotty 3G performance. Macworld has reported:

"Filed in the United States District Court, District of New Jersey, Damone Dickerson claims that Apple misrepresented the speed, strength and performance of the 3G network. The lawsuit claims that he could only connect to the fast 3G network a fraction of the time, and that it did not provide full and continual service. In fact, Dickerson claims that most of the time he receives no 3G connectivity at all.

The lawsuit charges the companies with Negligence, Breach of Express Warranty, Breach of Implied Warranty of Merchantability, Unjust Enrichment, Negligent Misrepresentation, Violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act and Other Similar State Statutes, and Breach of Contract."

Apple And AT&T Sued (Again) Over Allegedly Shoddy 3G Performance

Initially, I wondered why Dickerson didn't just return the phone and cancel his contract during his trial period, but then I remembered that I live in the United States of America, where litigation is king. Keep in mind that there have been multiple lawsuits similar to Dickerson's claim, so he might be a copycat wishing to cash in on AT&T's inconsistent 3G performance.

For you iPhone users in the house, how has AT&T's 3G performance worked for you? Whether it's good or bad, please let me know how it has been and what area you live in. Hopefully this post doesn't inspire anyone to contact their lawyer.
