An American court is going to be the scene of the first ever legal battle held over the allegedly poor quality of the iPhone’s reception. A group claim has been brought against Apple and AT&T by several users who are not at all pleased at the quality of calls which the iPhone 4 has offered them.
A Maryland court room will be the setting for a rivetting legal battle, where a number of users will claim that the companies are guilty of negligence, fraud and deceptive trading practices.
At the heart of the matter are the problems encountered by users who have found that covering the three black lines while holding the iPhone 4 causes a serious drop in call quality and reception. Buying a cover for the phone avoids the problems although I prefer the Apple CEO’s advice to “just avoid holding it that way”.
