iPhone faults strike again

companies failed to tell the first iPhone buyers that annual fees of more than $100 would be needed to replace the iPhone battery and maintain service.
AT&T committed fraud by not fully informing customers about the costs and procedures for replacing the battery.
the battery "must" be replaced after 300 charges, anticipating a replacement at one year or less by a qualified technician, since the battery sits inside a sealed compartment.
A similar class-action suit was filed by Jose Trujillo of Melrose Park, Illinois in July.

I wonder if I should sue Braun for not informing before I bought my electric shaver that the battery would not last forever, and isn't user-replaceable.

Just a nice joint AT&T/Apple offer to refund the money and cancel the contract with a coupon for 20% off on an iPod -- and entered into the AT&T/Apple database as a bad credit risk.

Sort of like the Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor warning, sue us and we won't sell you any cars in the future.
