First iPhone 4 lawsuit filed against Apple and AT&T

Apple and AT&T face a lawsuit due to iPhone 4 reception woes

The first ever legal battle over the iPhone 4's poor reception has started.

Apple's jobs listing for iPhone 4 antenna engineers might have come a tad too late.

Just days after the first potential lawsuit against Apple was announced, the first iPhone 4 class-action suit against Apple and AT&T has been filed.

The lawsuit has been filed by US firm, Ward & Ward, PLLC and Charles A. Gilman, LLC, on behalf of Kevin McCaffrey, Linda Wrinn and other iPhone 4 users (a class-action suit means that a large group of people can file a claim as a group) in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.

The iPhone 4 has been exposed to negative publicity over poor reception problems and low signal issues and reports of the screen not being as strong as it should. While the reception problem was "solved" by Steve Jobs who told users how to hold the iPhone 4 correctly, £25 bumper accessories also seemed to do the trick and allowed users to hold it any way they liked.

Another US firm, Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, who are under similar investigations to file a legal claim against Apple over the iPhone 4 said on their blog that almost 1400 people contacted them within a day of them asking for feedback, expressing discontent with the iPhone 4's poor signal.
