∞ Apple, AT&T sued over iPhone 4 reception

You knew it was going to happen. From the first day people started complaining about the iPhone 4 and the poor reception, you just knew a lawsuit was imminent — and now it’s here. iPhone 4A class action lawsuits have been brought against Apple and AT&T in California, Maryland, and Texas, according to a report on AppleInsider on Thursday. According to the report, the California suit already has 11 plaintiffs tied to the complaint.

“The iPhone 4 manifests design and manufacturing defects that were known to Defendants before it was released which were not disclosed to consumers, namely, a connection problem caused by the iPhone 4’s antenna configuration that makes it difficult or impossible to maintain a connection to AT&T’s network,” the lawsuit filed in California reads.

The lawsuit also references comments made by Apple CEO Steve Jobs where he supposedly told a customer that he was holding the iPhone the wrong way.
