Apple is smart they just avoided or delayed the lawsuit.

    I am not a fan of CA lawsuits. Apple is smart here by saying "a few weeks" and a "full refund" This makes things difficult for the greedy lawyers. I think this gives Apple time to do even more research and gives people who still are not satisfied the option for the full refund. They are even hiring Antenna experts.

    Since when does positive action by a company stop a class action lawyer? This is spin/damage control. The lawyers will still file based on "inconvenience" and the ever popular "pain and suffering" of affected iPhone users.

    CA's are for scum lawyers IMHO. People that join them may have a legitimate issue but when the suits walk away with the majority of the $$ what's the point. Each person gets $22.78 wooohoooo

    Actually, they just caused several more to be filed. All of those companies named in the letters will sue and there will be more class action suits relating to deceptive practices and false advertising for each iteration of the iPhone.

    To say that this press release is stupid doesn't even come close to describing its absurdity. All they had to say was they were aware of complaints, investigating and would resolve any issues. I don't know who does PR for them now, but this one takes the cake.

    Actually the current law suit has to be thrown out because it's using e-mails sent from steve jobs. And those e-mails were recently revealed to be Fake. You can't use fake e-mails as evidence.

    I don't even understand the point of the lawsuit. There are so many poorly made products out in the market place. If you think the iPhone's reception sucks, just return it for a full return. If you want to talk about faulty design, should everyone that ever brought Windows file a lawsuit too?

    Also filing one is dirt cheep. You file and hope for any settlement that brings in "fees". If Apple refuses nothing lost and you also got (almost) free publicity for the firm. None of these frivolous suits are going to trial. Trials take tons of money and time.

    Who proved those emails to be fake?
    A denial from Apple PR doesn't make it fact. They are a little biased, wouldn't you agree? :)

    This is the same problem with healthcare in this country. Malpractice suits are just like class-action lawsuits.... cheap to file, very few actually go to court since the lawyers just are trolling for a huge settlement.
