Lawsuit aims at iPhones's 3G connection

Lawsuit aims at iPhones's 3G connection
By now you’ve probably heard all the nightmare stories from people who say that their iPhone 3G was losing connection and reverting to the EDGE network when they have full bars.  There was a 14 page complaint filed by Jason Medway and the behalf of thousands in a Northern California court this week. The lawsuit claims that Apple had knowledge about the defect that prevents them from maintaining a signal on AT&T’s 3G network. Medway also alleges that Apple was aware about the problem but continued to sell the device while ignoring request to fix the problems.  In the end, the lawsuit is stating that Apple provided “broken promises” in regards to the phones transmission speed. Attorneys for Medway are seeking damages for thousands of class members in excess of five million dollars. Apple of course created updates to allow better reception coverage for the device. While some still state the problem is ongoing despite installing the updates, users are left to debate whether it is a hardware or software problem.

Should have just picked up an iPod Touch instead Jason. I does everything the iPhone does well and gets rid of the things it does not do well.

Is it just me, or is Phonearena's grammer going down the crapper? It seems like every day the quality of writing in these articles goes down. "A complaint filled by Jason and the behalf of thousands" or "Apple was aware about the problem" lol here's a proof read Phonearena: "A complaint filed by Jason ON behalf of thousands" "Apple was aware OF the problem".

I agree Big Red. This site needs a proofreader. By the way, "grammer" is spelled "grammar" Just thought I'd throw in my two sense (cents ***sarcasm***). But you hit it on the head; the reporting look like it's done by a seventh grader sometimes. Not to insult seventh graders. Hey PhoneArena, you gave us 120 seconds to edit our posts. Try using THAT feature.

Strange... I immediately posted a correction to my spelling error but phonearena deleted it! regardless of weather or not I hit spell check, we should expect better grammar from the articles than the comments haha. And stop deleting my comments phonearena, you're ruining the site!

You're not making any sense. You got a flow of iphone users because the device is not what they expected it to be? You make it sound like the iPhone just came out a few weeks ago. So I guess a flood of people ran and bought the iPhone when the storm came out and then they all decided that it wasn't good enough. Not likely. They would have know the iPhone wasn't what they expected way back in July.

How interesting! I get people in my store in Monterey picking up iPhones who tried the Storm first and hate it because it does..... well nothing right. I love blackberry and feel that the storm is abysmal. So I suppose this bulls*** can go on all day, huh?
