Apple 3G lawsuit filed

My friends and colleagues are constantly complaining about their 3G iPhones switching over to the EDGE network. But who do we blame: Apple’s software or AT&T’s network? Well, Jason Medway took it upon himself to file a 14-page complaint on behalf of thousands of customers in a Northern California courtroom. This lawsuit claims Apple was aware of a defect that prevents them from maintaining a signal on AT&T’s 3G network and ignored requests to fix the problem. This “broken promise” over the device’s transmission might end up costing Apple over $5 billion. Apple has created updates to allow better reception for the 3G device, although some updated users are still experience network flip-flop. So who is going to come out on top here: Mr. Medway’s attorneys or Apple?
