In the US state of Alabama, a woman has filed a lawsuit against Apple claiming that the iPhone 3G has trouble connecting to her network, drops out calls and is slower than was advertised by the company, according to a story in Computerworld.

Birmingham, Alabama resident Jessica Smith has charged Apple with “breach of express and implied warranty, and failing that, unjust enrichment”, according to the report.
The Computerworld story says that “Apple’s advertising blitz was misleading and the defendant intended for customers to believe its statements and representations about the defective iPhone 3Gs, and to trust that the device was ‘twice as fast at half the price’.
“The Defective iPhone 3G appeared to connect to the 3G standard less than 25 per cent of the time and the Plaintiff experienced an inordinate amount of dropped calls,” the report says.
One wonders whether this is the first of many future cases where the only dock the iPhone will increasingly find itself in is the one in court.
