Fourth iPhone Lawsuit Filed For Fun And Profit

Sigh… A guy named Jai Sen from New York has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple and AT&T alleging the following in a nutshell:

  • The iPhone is prone to hairline cracks in the housing (I have never heard of this until today. But a quick search of Canadian Apple fanboi discussion site turned up this thread that describes the a similar issue with the iPhone 3G)
  • The power demands required by AT&T’s 3G network and AT&T’s struggle to respond to these issues.
  • Misleading advertising by both parties.

The lawsuit is seeking restitution, damages, and disclosures and/or disclaimers to be added to packaging and advertisements for the iPhone 3G.

I have not heard as many fanbois iPhone users complaining about issues with the iPhone since the 2.1 firmware was released. So this lawsuit is a bit of a surprise. Perhaps not all the issues that users were experiencing were resolved? Or perhaps this guy is out to try and make a quick buck?

Thoughts, comments?

  1. These lawsuits have got to be from non-fanbois or just poser fanbois. In the eyes of a true Apple fanboi Apple can do no wrong – no way they would file a lawsuit against them. If that’s the case then Apple customers are just as much the jerks that Apple are themselves (ooooohh!!!).

    I’ve heard about those cracks, though. Just after the 3G was released there were photos popping up on the Internet of people’s white 3G’s developing cracks on their own in the plastic body. Then it just sorta faded out and I never heard of it again until now.
