Those who purchased the OG Apple iPad with 3G connectivity on or before June 7th, 2010 are entitled to a $40 payment from Apple, and a discounted data plan from AT&T, according to the terms of a Class Action settlement that was sent out via email to members of the class; when AT&T first helped launch the iPad in the U.S., it first offered unlimited 3G service to owners of the tablet. AT&T eventually eliminated the unlimited data program...

Can be hit or miss at times. Sometimes the towers get too congested and there may be problems with service. Same goes for every company that has a high volume of subscribers in an area.

Can someone put it in the average person's words cuz I don't understand law in the US (yes, I graduated high school). So why is Apple being sued?

Simply said, a promise made not kept. Customers felt backstabbed and revolted against them in the court. Court agreed and they got justice in a way.

as much as I love to see Apple suffer, the fault is solely with AT&T on this. Apple has nothing to do with AT&Ts data package offerings. Unless there was evidence that Apple said they wouldnt offer the Ipad to AT&T unless AT&T ditched unlimited plans (Which would not make sense as that would be more harmful than good to Apple, since limited data plans means less data consumption which means potentially less app/music/game purchases), Apple shouldnt be punished for this.
