US network operator, AT&T is facing a class action lawsuit following claims that the latest Apple iPhone was advertised as supporting MMS when the network itself has yet to offer such a functionality. However, AT&T has supported MMS for several years, but seems to be blocking the iPhone from being supported by its MMSC pending upgrades.
"Apple's print and video advertisements in and on television, the internet, the radio, newspapers and direct mailers all touted the availability of MMS.", the filing, seen by TG Daily says.
"The only excuse offered by AT&T and Apple is a mouseprint disclaimer on the website, in barely readable font, which reads 'MMS Support from AT&T coming in late summer'".
The lawsuit says that it will represent some 10,000 customers.
