Class Action Suit Against Apple and AT&T

I'm not entirely surprised, afterall, iPhone 4 has become famous for its antenna problems. Steve Jobs said not to hold it in way of covering the black strip as it is the wrong way. But Steve, most of us hold the phone on the left hand and navigate with the right! And there's no such thing as the wrong way of holding a phone, unless it's upside-down that is.

The lawsuit, filed by Ward & Ward, PLLC and Charles A. Gilman, LLC. on behalf of Kevin McCaffrey, Linda Wrinn and a number of other iPhone 4 users, in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, demanding a jury trial. The lawsuit is focused on the antenna problems and makes several claims:
• General Negligence (APPLE and AT&T)
• Defect in Design, Manufacture, and Assembly (APPLE)
• Breach of Express Warranty (APPLE)
• Breach of Implied Warranty for Merchantability (APPLE and AT&T)
• Breach of Implied Warranty of Fitness for a Particular Purpose (APPLE and AT&T)
• Deceptive Trade Practices (APPLE and AT&T)
• Intentional Misrepresentation (APPLE and AT&T)
• Negligent Misrepresentation (APPLE and AT&T)
• Fraud by Concealment (APPLE and AT&T)
The iPhone 4 has been plagued by receptions problems such as loss of internet connection or dropped calls since its release and it really does frustrates lots of customers. I think Apple should have seen this coming.
