Apple Facing Class Action Lawsuit Concerning 3G iPad and Data Plans

Mon, Jun 28, 2010

iPad, Mobile

As we all know by now, AT&T went and changed their Data plans a few weeks ago much to consumer anger and sadness. The most puzzling part of the change was that the iPad was effected and more than a few who purchased an iPad 3G model would like Apple to compensate them for what was essentially a bait-and-switch operation.

According to PadVance, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein is taking on the case of a consumer who purchased an iPad 3G  and believes that both AT&T and Apple are responsible for the breach of a contract that was to go with his purchase. Earlier this month, AT&T changed its data plan from unlimited to a tiered data plan.

Apple originally marketed the iPad 3G as being able to switch between the tiered data plan and unlimited data plan and it worked that way up until June 7th. Now, a user who wishes to switch their data plan between unlimited and tiered is unable to, which is where the problem arises.

So, what do you think? Does the plaintiff have a case? Let us know in the comments section below.
