What began as a glitch with the new iPhone is now turning into a lawsuit. In the first week after its release, the phone was widely reported to have connection problems, requiring users to hold it improperly in order to maintain a call. Apple has tried to remedy the problem by releasing a special case for it, but for a pair of law firms in Washington, D.C. and Maryland, it is nowhere close to a solution. The suit, which seeks class-action status, accuses Apple and AT&T primarily of negligence and misrepresentation. "We feel very strongly that Apple has done something wrong and AT&T was complicit," one lawyer on the plaintiffs’s legal team said. "And collectively consumers can and are speaking and I hope Apple hears us and is willing to resolve it."
