Apple Settles Antenna-Gate Class-Action Lawsuit
File this under “crap-I-didn’t-see-till-just-now”, but Apple finally reached a settlement in the Antennagate lawsuit against the company and issued a statement to The Loop.
“This settlement relates to a small number of customers who indicated that they experienced antenna or reception issues with their iPhone 4 and didn’t want to take advantage of a free case from Apple while it was being offered in 2010.” — Natalie Harrison, Apple Spokeswoman.
Most frustrated users took up Apple’s free Bumper case offer and called it a day. Reports even surfaced of Apple sending out free bumper cases to AppleCare customers who called in with complaints of reception issues after the Sept 30, 2010 program deadline. Those that persisted with the lawsuit for another 18 months received the same deal effectively gaining nothing for their legal trouble.
The settlement in questions applies to 18 separate lawsuits that combined together into a single class-action lawsuit against Apple. The plaintiffs accused Apple of "misrepresenting and concealing material information in the marketing, advertising, sales and servicing of its iPhone 4."
Hopefully the legal fees of those involved were paid for in the settlement as well...

And I still have had less than 10 dropped calls with my i4. And that includes two months without any case at all. This settlement feels like justice to me. All that time and money and what did they get? A bumper they could have gotten within a month or so. Maybe next time they'll sue a fast food place over hot coffee.

My original bumper case disintegrated. I should be entitled to another as long as the phone continues to have the problem.

The ability to just play with the legal system in this country is on extreme levels of disgusting

Those people could have gotten a new phone if they wanted, but they chose to stay with the lawsuit cause they thought they'd get money out of it. People will sue for anything these days, it's ridiculous! Super funny though that they got screwed in the end and didn't get any money

And, by the way, I know many people who were early adopters of the i4 who had NO issue with i4s. It's not that Apple offered a fix, and the issue went away. It still is not clear exactly why some people had issues and others didn't. (Oh, and yes, I'm on AT&T.) I personally believe it has to do with how people hold the phone. And while that can be an issue for some people, a simple exchange or, dare I say it, holding the phone slightly differently can resolve that particular issue.
As to your last sentence re spoon feeding, well, many of us are able to think clearly and understand the ramifications of personal responsibility AND corporate responsibility. To attempt to denigrate us for being clear thinkers by offering your mistaken opinion that we need our information broken down into small bits so we, us dolts, can understand it as you think you do (I don't agree with your opinion, but I'm not calling you names when I do so, or suggesting your lack of intelligence, or offering up that you are too simple to understand big words) is both rude and incorrect. I'd suggest that you keep your opinion to yourself if you need to resort to name calling on these boards. This is a place for reasoned discussion, it's not talk radio or attack TV.

i had more issues with the case on the phone then i did with it off. But i still only dropped like ten to twelve calls the hole time i had the Iphone 4. i was pretty happy with the performance of the phone. I remember dropping more calls with the 3gs than with the 4. Now i have the 4s and so far so good.

Apple products are the best thing out there (duh). Don't think for a second that their lawyers aren't just as good.
