Lawsuit against AT&T and Apple over iPad 3G amended, refiled

A class action lawsuit filed against AT&T and Apple earlier this month over the former’s change in data plan offerings has been amended and refiled to include more users, including those out-of-state. The New York Times reports that the suit, filed in U.S. District court in San Jose, CA, currently names three persons who claim Apple and AT&T “baited” them in an iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G with the unlimited wireless data plan, “only to have that promise reneged upon within weeks of their purchases.” The suit notes that AT&T and Apple originally claimed that iPad 3G customers would be able to easily opt-in and opt-out of the unlimited plan, but following AT&T’s data plan changes, it’s unclear whether users who decide to skip a month of data will still be eligible for the unlimited plan afterwards. The suit also claims that AT&T was abrupt in its decision, giving customers less than a week’s notice that the unlimited offering would be eliminated.

Agree, this is chewed up!  I had bought the iPad as well thinking I could sign up for the unlimited plan!! It wasn’t until after I bought it that I found out that it does not exsist any more!! This information is not and was not advertised to the extent it should have been!  Agree, all of us werer tricked and miss lead GREATLY!! I think we are should have the unlimited plan back! This is very upsetting I don’t have the unlimited option at pretty much the same PRICE!!

I saw Lewis Black from Comedy Central fame perform live last Saturday night in Fargo, ND. He held up his iPhone and said that he considered AT&T a carrier much in the same way that a mosquito is a carrier for malaria. For the good of customers and for its own good, Apple must enlist a different service provider.
