A class action lawsuit complaint was filed against Apple, Inc., AT&T Inc. and AT&T Mobility, LLC (collectively “Defendants”) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (captioned Adam Weisblatt v. Apple, Inc., AT&T Inc. and AT&T Mobility, LLC, Case No. 5:10-cv-02553-PVT) alleging that Apple and AT&T sold the 3G-enabled iPads with promises that “unlimited data” service plans would always be available at the customers’ option, but that as of June 7, 2010, Apple and AT&T discontinued providing the “unlimited data” plan, according to class action lawsuit news reports.

The Apple 3G Enabled iPad and AT&T Unlimited Data Plan class action lawsuit complaint alleges that Apple and AT&T had promised consumers flexibility with their data plans, allowing them the ability to freely switch back and forth between the limited data plan, the unlimited plan, and no 3G data plan, based on their data needs, but have now allegedly been stripped of their ability to do so.

The Apple 3G Enabled iPad and AT&T Unlimited Data Plan class action lawsuit complaint is brought on behalf of a putative class of all persons in United States who purchased an Apple iPad with 3G capability between April 30, 2010 and June 6, 2010, and who are not otherwise excluded.
