CLAYTON, Mo. (CN) – Apple and AT&T Mobility’s 3G iPhone does not deliver on advertised promises, a class action claims in St. Louis County Court. The class claims they get error messages when they try to send a picture to another cell phone through the advertised Multimedia Messaging Service.
Named plaintiffs Meredith Goette and Raymond Bolourtchi say they tried to upload the defendants’ free software update but it didn’t work. They say AT&T’s towers in North America were not upgraded to support Multimedia Messaging Service, though Apple and AT&T continue to advertise that the phone has such capabilities.
The class consists of all Missourians who bought a 3G or 3G-S iPhone from Apple or AT&T between July 1, 2008 and the day of final judgment in the suit. It seeks actual and punitive damages and is represented by Joel Schwartz with Rosenblum, Schwartz, Rogers of Chesterfield, Mo.
