Apple CEO Steve Jobs holding an iPhone 4  (Source: Brisbane Times)
Suit seeks unspecified damages

The iPhone 4 had only been on the market for a few hours when some users started to complain that the device had poor reception. Part of the issue is the design of the antenna, which is integrated into the phone and visible on the metal band sandwiched between the front and back glass of the smartphone.

Shortly after the issues caught on in the media, the subject of class action suits started being bandied about. The first of the suits has been filed and is seeking class action status in the United States Court for the District of Maryland. The two main plaintiffs in the case are Kevin McCaffrey of Nottingham, Maryland and Linda Wrinn of Baltimore, Maryland. The suit seeks a jury trial.

A few of the major claims in the suit are general negligence on behalf of Apple and AT&T, defect in design, manufacture and assembly on behalf of Apple, breach of express warranty and implied warranty by Apple and AT&T, deceptive trade practices by both companies and intentional misrepresentation by both companies. A total of nine claims are made.

The suit documents don't offer a specific amount of money being sought in the "Prayer for Relief" section and asks the judge to award any such relief that may be just and proper.

The early complaints allege that when the iPhone 4 is held just right the iPhone drops from four or five bars when sitting on the table to one bar or in some cases no service at all when held in the hand and much of the antenna is covered by the palm. The solution to the problem according to Steve Jobs is to simply not hold the smartphone that way.

Apple has continued to maintain that there are no reception issues on the phone and that the performance users are seeing is normal.

This will have no effect on Apple consumers, as they will continue to sell their children in order to buy one anyway.

This will have no effect on Apple, even if they have to pay damages, because their cretinous consumer base will buy anything and everything they make anyway - they have no reason to make "good" products.

But, the lawyers will make a lot of money.

OK...here's one.

If we want to investigate why Apple puts out poor quality products, that lack obvious features, that are ridiculously overprices, etc. - start with the person who bought one anyway.

You bought one of these phones. Which informs Apple that you approve of the device. Therefore, they have no reason to address the problems with the device. Why should they? People are buying them anyway. And not returning them.

I would suggest that the place to start looking for the reason why Apple does these sorts of things is the nearest mirror.

I never thought my iPhone 3GS to be of poor quality (my wife has one as well, she has no problem with hers). I had it for a year, never had any problems with it, then sold it on eBay for almost $300 used last week.

I pre-ordered the iPhone 4 based on my favorable experience with the iPhone 3GS.

As to how I got sucked into the whole iPhone ecosystem in the first place, I bought an iPod touch a few years ago. I got sucked into the eco system of purchasing apps and games, and I also took it everywhere I went. I also carried a "dumbphone" at the time. I figured, might as well get one device to hand it all, and since I had already bought into the ecosystem, I decided to get the 3GS to make the switch seamless.

The iPhone 4, however, I'm not to impressed with the reception problems. But it's not like I knew that before I pre-ordered it though...

This has been my problem with the Apple thing all along. They have fantastic success with a good pairing of products a number of years ago: iPod and iTunes. Most of the technologically-inclined people I know that keep using Apple hardware is because they want total compatibility with the ecosystem they bought into years and years ago.

Apple profits by locking their consumers in.

The iPod and iTunes were *not* a good choice in the beginning. The iPod had such crappy DACs and whatnot that a $10 Chinese "disposable" .mp3 player had the same or better sound quality, and the DRM that came with iTunes was deplorable.

Sure...eventually iPods caught up with the cheap stuff, and evetually iTunes gave you an option to buy normal .mp3s.

But the point is that bajillions of people bought the stuff anyway. Apple doesn't sell technology so much as it sells a self-image, they sell their brand and have managed to convince the unwashed masses that to own an Apple product is to be cool and hip and the only way to express your individuality. By doing the same thing everyone else is doing.

I don't own an ipod, but the touchwheel makes it so darn easy to navigate and use, unlike the other stuff at the time. That, and of course their millions on marketing.

Personally, I think RockBox on a Sansa Clip+ blows everything else out of the water, but the UI on it is of course cumbersome.

If you would just learn to hold a phone properly all your problems would disappear. I applaud a company that finally has come out and instructed consumers on properly using a device. If we all knew how to use devices and software exactly as the designers meant them to be used, there would be no bugs or problems.

I own an iPhone 4 and don't think this is appropriate. I don't know about the other countries in the world, but here in the U.S. AT&T has a 30 day return policy, no questions asked. If someone is not satisfied with their new iPhone, they can take it back for a full refund.

The only thing the lawsuit does is raise the price of producing the product, which Apple and AT&T will just pass on to their consumers. I guess its not so much fun to support the trial lawyers when they are coming after you.

It's going to get to the point where any company will have to have an army of lawyers anytime they release a new product because of the all ambulance chasers out there and people looking to be relevant and/or make a quick buck. Innovation will suffer and prices will increase.

I agree that Apple was careless with the antenna and that they should offer free cases to any iPhone 4 purchaser, but in the end it should be the free market and consumer choice that punishes them and not some stupid lawsuit.

But I guess in a way this is justice because Apple is a politically liberal company and the democrat party which they support is the party of lawyers and frivolous lawsuits.

Wrong! What I am saying is "let's stop all the crappy frivolous lawsuits that drive up the cost of doing business, make everything more expensive and reduce the rate of innovation."

If you want to call out Apple for designing a faulty product, be my guest. Blog about it, put it on the news, or even better, design a superior product for a lower price.

But don't run off and file a stupid lawsuit and waste everyone's (including the courts) time because you are trying to make a quick buck.

Lawsuits are for when you have actually been DAMAGED and want compensation. AT&T offers a full refund for 30 days, no questions asked. If you couldn't get a refund, or if the phone blew up and burned your hand, I would agree with the lawsuit.

If this lawsuit is successful, it will set an ugly precident. People will start suing any kind of company that makes any product with any kind of design flaw whatsoever. And nothing is perfect, every product has one kind of flaw or another. So where do you draw the line?

But this all about some lawyers wanting to make a quick buck (and some anti-Apple crusaders wanting to punish Apple for its success) and Apple is an easy target with this well publicized design flaw. This type of mentality is exactly why the country is going down the tubes.

But I guess the one good thing about this is Apple is getting a real taste of the results of the types of political policies it supports.

You are wrong. Apple is refunding in full as they know iphone 4 is defective but At&t still charging 10% restocking fee so it is not full refund and of course I am not even saying how much they are collecting in usage charges even for a day. So do your numbers and you get the picture of defective devices and their practices.

Same phone -- can buy any where either apple or At&T but 2 different return policies.

Well I don't own an Iphone (never really plan on EVER owning one -- unless I won a contest to get one for free or something) but I think this class action suit is also appropriate, and most times I balk at class actions.

Though I also agree with the poster who said even if the class action succeeds , its doubtful Apple will "really" be affected or change anything (I mean aside from what the court orders them to do).

Also Apple is one of the wealthiest companies on the planet, they can afford it...

So in your paradigm being rich means that its ok for others to treat you badly? This is why the United States is doomed.

Destroying the rich through high taxes and lawsuits may help you feel good for a short time, but in the end it destroys the economy. We are really lucky to have some leading edge companies in the US that make great products. If the high taxes and lawsuits keep up eventually they will move elsewhere to more pro-business countries and refuse to sell their products here.

Take a look at the liberal cesspools around the country where the liberals have been implementing high taxation policies and you see their economies in the toilet, with people fleeing their states in droves.

We really need to have tort reform, and a loser pays all court costs type of punishment for frivolous lawsuit.

Yea he definitely is hurting Apple quite a bit with some of his recent actions. If he hadn't released such insane and contradictory story this wouldn't perhaps have gotten much more attention than Apple's various other recent quality issues.

That said, though, I think the underlying issue here is the fact that Apple amazingly failed to test their flagship product thoroughly, though it was obviously from the lost/stolen model near complete months ago...

I think this is ultimately their policy of super-secrecy coming back to bite them. Seems like some Apple engineers sit designing this thing, it goes through some shock tests, etc, but then virtually skips the usage testing phase because they're afraid of leaks. So then this kind of junk happens... Great job!

Actually, the underlying issue is that they're still selling these things by the boatload.

I have been dumbfounded by this as well. How do you design a 4th generation product that you know will sell millions without testing to see if the phone is actually functional as a phone?

I can only come to a conclusion that once it passes the "Oooo shiny!" test phase, then it's ready for distribution.

While restitution to the people screwed over by Apple is important, another really important function of class action lawsuits is to dissuade companies from such actions in the future. If a company takes a big hit from a lawsuit such as this, they are likely to test their phones before selling them next time.

This lawsuit is all about some greedy lawyers wanting to make a quick buck. Apple won't be affected that much.

If lawsuits become routine, they will just pass on their legal expenses to the consumers. And with higher Apple prices the Android companies will have more room to raise THEIR prices. And in 10 years when you are paying $1000 for a new cell phone, hopefully you'll be able to connect the dots.

Are you seriously trying to imply that a company with one of the largest market caps in the world and 40 billion in the bank can't afford to take on such a lawsuit without affecting its customers?

Apple takes on lawsuits all the time, you just don't hear about it. When you are raking in insanely high profit margins like Apple has been, you don't take a chance and pass on the outcome of simple lawsuits to the consumer.

While I agree with you in theory, I don't agree in this situation. I'd be willing to take wagers that this will not happen next time around. i.e This will most likely help consumers, not hurt them.

An Anandtech article evaluating the reception problem indicated that the issue may not be all that simple. It could even come down to how different phones convey the signal strength indicator and how useful that indicator actually is because their tests showed that iPhone 4 had overall better reception and less dropped calls than the previous models, even though the signal indicator showed a big drop.
It would seem the technology is not as straightforward as one would think. I'm probably not explaining clearly, so anyone interested should read the article. Of course the nature of the class action was not specified. If they were complaining calls actually got dropped, then that's a different story. But just that the indicator bars went all the way down then...

Nonetheless, in Anand and Brian article, they state that there is a 24 dbm fall in signal strength when you hold the phone using your palm would render the phone useless if it reached -113 dbm signal, which means, you need to have a signla strength of at least -88 dbm, for it to work (meaning you have to be in an area with very good signal, as the fifth bar starts at -91 dbm)

It was PREDICTED that Apple (and CEO dictator) would say "Just hold it other way", "you are holding it wrong", "buy a case"

Do you feel the same way about the government as you do about this company?

No one is forcing you to buy Apple products. There are plenty of excellent alternatives out there (like Android) and you are free to go with those products. And if you buy an iPhone 4 and don't like it for any reason you can return it for a full refund in 30 days.

On the other hand, soon the government will force you to buy health insurance and pay higher taxes. Are you by any chance angry about THAT, or that somehow OK with you?
