Apple and AT&T hit with lawsuit over disappearance of iPad unlimited data option

Apple and AT&T have been hit with a class-action lawsuit over what some are calling the bait and switch removal of iPad 3G unlimited data plan. Since June 9, three consumers went to the law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP to file the amended complaint.

"The availability of an unlimited data plan was a key reason why consumers paid the extra $130 charge to access the 3-G network, and their ability to switch in and out of the unlimited data plan was also an important consideration in the decision to purchase an iPad," stated Lieff Cabraser attorney Michael W. Sobol. "The complaint alleges that Apple and AT&T should have known at the time they were promoting the availability of unlimited data plans, they were not going to keep that promise."
