Let's be real honest here, whenever someone sues big business(ie: Apple) they are doing it for two reasons, and two reasons only, press and money! Regardless of the problems the new iPhone may be facing, if she isn't happy with her device, she could simply return her phone and get a phone more suitable to her liking. I'm not even sure what amount she's suing for but you can guarantee it will be an absurd amount of money over "damages". So ridiculous in my mind, but this is America what can you expect, people will sue anyone these days at a chance to make an easy buck.
Also as quoted by theetoothfairy, I agree whole heartedly with this comment..."That being said, I do think the lawsuit was filed prematurely, but it is certainly not without merit. It remains to be seen what the actual problem is, and if Apple can fix these issues adequately."

wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!!
THEIR IS DEFECTIVE CHIPS IN THE 3G!!! IT IS PROVEN!!! APPLE HAS ADMITTED IT!!! OTHER CARRIERS AROUND THE WORLD HAVE ALSO CONFIRMED THIS!!!
at&t may not have the best 3g coverage but when you are dead smack in the middle of what is supposed to be superior 3g coverage and you look down and have no service compared to your co-worker who also has a 3g at&t phone but has 5 bars and you are standing in the middle of a major metro area with no interference (buildings an what-not)
then it is obvious where the problem resides.
yes, there are way to many frivolous lawsuits. yes, she probably wont win a damn thing.
But all you people with your "you had 30 days" and "use your head, moron" and shes a ******* idiot stuff and all these other stupid little analogies about car companies and whatever-(other than the firestone and ford analogy you are the ones who need to shut up for christ sake. she has the right to do this and has a legitimate claim. she only wants what she was promised. by the way she is in good 3g coverage just like many of those people in downtown manhattan (with no interfierence) that have to use edge because get over it fanboys and get apples balls out of your mouth. THE 3G CHIP IN THE IPHONE 3G CAN BE DEFECTIVE!!!!

This is obviously a serious issue if Apple has announced updates and fixes that are attempts to resolve this problem. The people at MMi are not responsible for apple stepping up, its a known problematic fact. And for you not to see a difference between wifi and 3G, has nothing to do with a wireless router, it has to do with your connection speed to your wifi router. If you dont see a difference you must not have broadband, or are just too "dumb" to know what you have. My wifi (broadband) at home runs on average 850 - 1000 Kbps. downloading. High Speed EDGE maxes out somewhere around 250 KBPS (which you can rarely get) and 3G maxes out just shy of double that. so with your little DSL you might not tell a difference, but calling people dumb because you are just an ignorant country bumpkin is poor class. Grow up little kid and be aware of the rest of the world.

reception on the new 3g iphone sucks. when i jailbreak em at work for customers, i feel bad when giving em back to the customer cuz it ain't got reception. if you compare it to our Q or ant other 3g phone, the reception is there. In this case, i think apple rushed it and released it premature. This release is all Apples fault. I hope ATT doesn't work with Apple on the next release. iTunes down on launch date, making ATT look bad!!! This whole 3g things is killing ATT cuz now everyone thinks ATT has a poor 3g network. Granted, its not available everywhere, it works in my house but the iphone will not. Prior to trying the 3g iPhone, I had a Q and a Tilt. The 3g was awesome but when I got the 3g iPhone, it was garbage.
