Lawsuit Targets iPhone 3G Performance, Network
William Gillis has filed a lawsuit in a San Diego court against Apple and ATT on claims of the two companies knowingly oversaturating the AT&T 3G wireless data network through a flawed iPhone 3G smartphone design coupled with overhyped performance claims.
Since many customers are potentially affected by the alleged flaws in AT&T's network and its interaction with Apple's phone, Gillis is seeking class action status so that every AT&T subscriber in California plagued by slow or intermittent performance -- which could measure into the "thousands" -- can earn compensation if they've suffered through a sub-par 3G experience.
The complaint would have Apple and AT&T pay this restitution as well as punitive damages. Both firms would also be stopped from pursuing the same marketing and public relations tactics that triggered the filing, which demands a jury trial.
