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.
