    XDA Member Files Class Action Lawsuit against T-Mobile and Samsung

    Posted by Allen Kiehl on January 14, 2011 30 Comments

    [​IMG] MicBeast over at XDA has filed a class action lawsuit again [COLOR=orange ! important][FONT=inherit ! important][COLOR=orange ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]T-Mobile[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] and Samsung regarding the current rumors of Samsung withholding the [COLOR=orange ! important][FONT=inherit ! important][COLOR=orange ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]Android[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] 2.2 (Froyo) update for the Galaxy S line of devices. MicBeast has currently hired Edelson McGuire to represent the case. We are still flabbergasted at the tip we received from an anonymous source claiming to work internally at T-Mobile. As we stated in our previous post, although we cannot validate nor deny the alleged rumor, we felt it was necessary to bring it to the forefront. Check out the excerpt from MicBeast below.
    They have continuously lied to us about the hardware, and [COLOR=orange ! important][FONT=inherit ! important][COLOR=orange ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]software[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] reliability of this phone,
    they promised us updates (to 2.2! Not the functionally dead JI6 2.1!) over and over,
    NOW they plan to release NEW galaxies without updating the old ones they currently have.
    The GPS is clearly a hardware defect.
    There are just too many issues with this phone and the Customer service reps have been combative even bullying and threatening customers!
    a clear violation of US law
    We can only hope that this alleged rumor will help Samsung find some time to support their customers better than they have previously and gives the updates the consumers deserve.
    What do you think about all these alleged rumors and the lawsuit? Let us know in the comments below.

    I'm all for it. Samsung has clearly lured in customers with the great hardware, and has failed to considerably improve it's horrible software. I'm not a law expert so I don't know if it would be able to hold up against Samsung and T Mobile's lawyers, but at least the community's message is generating some attention. I had never and will never buy a samsung product.

    Somebody has to fight the giants on behalf of the little guy. They will rape us through marketing and promises unless they know it may cost them some bad pub. This should be done more these days but we are all "too busy" to do anything. I'm all for it.
