Apple faces two more iPhone 3G speed lawsuits

Apple and AT&T Mobility are facing two new lawsuits claiming the speed and infrastructure of the 3G network is insufficient.

The lawsuits were filed in the United States District Court of the Southern District of Florida and in the United States District Court Eastern District of Texas Sherman Division this week.

In addition to claiming insufficient bandwidth of the 3G networks, both lawsuits also say the iPhone 3G has had “well-known and documented issues regarding the premature ‘wear-and-tear’ of the iPhones’ housing, including the formation of hairline cracks in the

iPhones’ casing.”

The lawsuit claims this violates statutory and common law, including consumer protection statutes, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, and breaches of express and implied warranties.

The lawsuits make eight claims against the companies including Breach of Express Warranty, Breach of Implied Warranty of Fitness of Purpose, Unjust Enrichment, Negligent Misrepresentation, Intentional Misrepresentation, and Breach of Contract.
