Class action suit continues against Apple and AT&T for deception

On Wednesday, a federal court in Northern California concluded there is enough evidence to allow a class action suit against Apple and AT&T over the terms in AT&T’s two year service agreement for Apple iPhone customers is deceptive.

Apple and AT&T have been charged with violations of federal antitrust laws and other consumer protection laws; with the complaint stating Apple restricted data and voice services to the iPhone after signing a 2 year agreement but did not reveal said restrictions to the customer at time of purchase.

Plaintiffs argue that version 1.1.1 upgrade of the iPhone last year wasn’t just new features for the consumer but as a way of “retaliating against consumers who had unlocked their iPhones or installed unapproved” 3rd party apps.
