Can you believe it; someone is wanting to sue Apple & AT&T for allowing too many iPhones onto the service.

Two questions logically arise from this...

Does AT&T only allow iPhones onto their wireless network?

I can't imagine that being the case...

Then why pick on the IPhone ?

Answer..

Sour grapes I expect.

I wonder who it is.... Wink

Oh lord, get off your iPhone and get on a computer. I guess I did use my internet (wi-fi) heavily when I first got my iPhone. Once the new-ness had worn off I went back to the computer to do my browsing. I only use the iPhone's browser when I'm bored. I do, however, pretty much exclusively check my e-mail with my iPhone. I don't remember the last time I logged into gmail from a computer...

Hackers,

Not sure why it isn't working for you.

I just checked it again and it's behaving fine.

Anyway, here is the text from the link I posted...

Apple, AT&T sued for too many iPhones on 'overloaded' network

Apple and its U.S. wireless partner AT&T are being sued for selling too many iPhones by a customer who says the high-speed phone network has been "overloaded" and unable to deliver promised performance.

The iPhone 3G, designed to work with AT&T's faster third-generation network, switches over to slower networks because of the "high volume of 3G iPhones sold," according to an Aug. 29 complaint filed in San Diego. Plaintiff William J. Gillis Jr. is seeking class-action, or group, status on behalf of other users.

Apple sold 1 million iPhone 3G handsets in the first three days after the device went on sale July 11. The company says the new model is twice as fast as the original Web-surfing handset, first offered in June 2007. Apple released a software update earlier this month to improve network connections after some customers complained about dropped calls and sound quality. AT&T is Apple's exclusive partner in the U.S.

"Apple and AT&T have misrepresented to the public the speed, strength and performance of the 3G-bandwidth network," according to the 14-page complaint.

Apple doesn't comment on pending litigation, said spokeswoman Susan Lundgren. AT&T spokesman Fletcher Cook wasn't available to comment.

Apple was sued last month by another customer who complained of dropped calls and slower-than-promised download speeds over the Internet.

The iPhone 3G connects to the network "less than 25 percent of

the time," according to a complaint filed Aug. 19 in federal court in Birmingham, Ala.
