    To: iPhone Owners denied warranty service.
    From: MTI

    Seeking respondents for possible class action lawsuit against Apple Inc. relating to refusal to service iPhones and related accessories under warranty.

    Classes: There are three potential classes in this case:


    1) Persons who own an iPhone and used software to access the available flash drive space on the iPhone, *without* modifying iPhone firmware nor installing 3rd party applications on the iPhone itself. Among this class are users of the commercial product "iPhoneDrive", a third party application that allows the iPhone to be used as a storage device, but that does not alter iPhone firmware nor install executables onto the iPhone itself.

    Persons of this class must have been refused warranty service by Apple or its associated Apple stores, with such refusal being due to respondent's use of iPhoneDrive, iToner, or other external application that does NOT alter firmware.




    2) Persons who own an iPhone, and who installed 3rd party software on the iPhone for the purpose of expanding its functionality. Examples of such programs are "Installer.app" and the native applications that it installs into the iPhone.

    Persons of this class must have restored their iPhone firmware back to factory defaults, or be seeking services for a non-firmware nor software issue, such as a defective touch screen, defective battery, or other purely hardware failure under warranty, and have been refused service due to their past usage of third party applications.



    3) Persons who unlocked their iPhone to allow for its use on networks other than ATT.

    Persons of this class must have restored their iPhone firmware back to factory defaults, or be seeking services for a non-firmware nor software issue, such as a defective touch screen, defective battery, or other purely hardware failure under warranty, and have been refused service due to their past usage of third party applications.



    If you are a member of one of the above classes, please respond by sending an email to:

    In the subject line, please state only "Class One" , "Class Two", or "Class Three", depending on the class that you belong to. Emails with subject lines other that one of these three will be ignored.

    In the body of the email, please state your name and contact information (to be held strictly confidential), and the circumstances relating to Apple's refusal of warranty service. Please be as complete as possible, and try to include the following:

    1) Date you purchased the iPhone, and the state where purchased

    2) A complete description of the third party applications you used with your iPhone (for members of class three, the method of unlock).

    3) The reason for the need for warranty service

    4) If upgrading to firmware 1.1.1 appeared to result in the problem requiring service

    5) If upgrading to iTunes 7.4.2 or later appeared to result in the problem requiring service

    6) If you successfully did a "restore" prior to bringing the iPhone to Apple

    7) The name of the Apple representative that refused service

    8) The exact reason Apple stated that they were refusing service,



    Regards,

    MTI

    Class action lawsuits

    Nothing better for lawyers to get rich, the people with the actual problems to get almost nothing, and our courts to get tied up.

    Proud of you.

    :rolleyes:

    no thanks, but I'll be sure to laugh at you when all of the above are thrown out of court. People really need to srart to read the software licence agreement when they sign up

    Yea, with the method of downgrading the firmware, and soon the baseband, this is bunk. What we need is pressure put on AT&T/Apple to allow a proper unlock.....

    It is amazing how many people never read the fine print and never listen to an upcoming firmware update that warns of unlocked iPhones being disabled, Even though I paid $400 dollars for the 8GB iPhone I wouldnt risk screwing it up and having it not work, however some people must have money to burn. I dont see where a class action lawsuit warrants any merit.

    This was long overdue.

    We hadn't had a new class action lawsuit thread in at least 18 hours.

    Not to mention a potential security issue.

    A thread asking for people to send them their personal contact info, etc is probably a rather bad thing to get involved with.

    Yeah, in addition to having no interest in this lawsuit, I thought it was odd that this is myndex's second post ever. I'm unclear on whether this is originally from that person, or just a repost from somewhere else.
