Apple sued over unsent iMessage text issue

Apple is being sued over an issue that causes iPhone text messages to get lost when sent to Android devices, Bloomberg reports. The lawsuit was filed by a former iPhone user who claims she switched to a different device and stopped receiving texts. A few days ago, a widely distributed blog post was written about the very same issue; that post claimed Apple was aware of the problem, but has no standard solution. Texts sent from an iMessage system to a user who used to have an iPhone but switched to an Android phone are — often, apparently — getting delayed in delivery or are completely failing to reach the intended recipient. The suit is seeking class-action status. [via Business Insider]

I think that iMessage should automatically be switched off on any device as part of the device wipe process.
I can’t imagine it being difficult to implement.

Why should apple support a device that a apple user choose to buy, stay true or don’t #####.
