Apple Took Offence at People Switching to Android

Apple faces lawsuits for punishing its former iPhone users for choosing to continue this life with Android. The lawsuit was filed by an ex-iPhone user, Adrienne Moore, who claims that since she changed to a non-Apple device, she for some reason stopped receiving text messages from her mates who stayed with Apple.


The lawsuit was filed in federal court in California and seeks class-action status. The plaintiff claims that Apple’s iMessage system for some reason retains text messages sent from other Apple devices and wouldn’t deliver them to her new Android-running device. At least, this is what Moore said in the complaint filed.

Media reports referred to this incident as the reminder that people who dare to replace their Apple devices with other wireless phones and tablets would be penalized and deprived of the right to get the full benefits of their wireless-service contracts. The problem is that text messages simply get “stuck” either briefly or permanently inside an iPhone’s iMessage system if they’re sent to someone who used to have an Apple device but have switched their number to an Android phone.

Indeed, users have claimed that they noticed their iPhones behave weirdly when sending text messages to non-Apple users – the texts were showing up late, or not at all. For instance, The New York Times’ David Segal also complained that he can’t receive messages from iPhone users altogether anymore. Apparently, this is somehow connected with the fact that he recently dumped the Apple device for an Android. Provided that most of his colleagues continue to use iPhones as part of their function as Apple’s unpaid press office, communication with them and life overall became a bit problematic for Segal.

Tech experts would say this is hilarious – the problem of such type would be easy to fix. After all, everyone else’s device can do ordinary texts without regard to the recipient, while Apple has always claimed that its software is superior. Either this is not true, or there’s just a lack of will on the company’s part. Industry observers are waiting for the outcome of the case, saying that perhaps the precedent would force Apple to stop behaving like a cult and punishing people who chose to leave the cult by breaking communications with their cult friends.

No avatarI Got a brand new IPhone from my new job. I hated it so much I gave it back, paid $200 for a real phone and footed the bill myself. Worth every penny!

Embolism avatarproprietary software,music and now messaging,how far will they go before they alienate all their user base,most will continue in following the flock regardless and only the egregious will break from the herd mentality and when they do they need to be aware of what they are buying as we know Samsung has a hack out there so I personally would avoid them as I would windows O/S phones the latter being no more trustworthy than crapple,android is the way to go for price and free apps + games in general though. (:^D)

No avatarIt's high time these two grew up. Apple are very good quality devices, but think they rule your life. samsung are also great, but allow you the freedom to download, load, store your own stuff. A big plus over being dictated too. I love my iPhone 5s, but I love my samsung tablet better, why, cos I can do what I want with it...... grow up and give the punters what they want apple, all this shite spent on fines and bickering is mental.

xxxskfxxx avatari have same problem with not getting texts when i dumped my iphone other iphone users need to select the option of sending an ordinary text not an i message.

tobeannounced avatarSo apple will have to admit they are not superior or they knowingly treat customers like quitting a bad habit cold turkey. Either way, their true colors came out, not good either!

Topsided1 avatarI was so excited to get my first bite of the apple, my Iphone 4. Problems from day 1 with that piece of 4hit. I was stuck with it for a year. I rode the first droid outta town first chance I got. Samsung Note 2...some think its too big I never thought so, guess you just have to be used to pulling out something large outta ur pants for it to seem natural. hehehe Apple = The herd's thinning

fusseltier avatarthat sounds just about right for apple to do such a thing...
and don't confuse apple with america, americans or capitalism...
apple is the most un-american company out there, its anti-american.
just a bunch of greedy corporate geeks.... no better than oil companies...
with higher than normal prices for their products.

ikbenlenn avatarApple... for people with more money than sence.

I wonder why it's not widely known that Apple products register ABSOLUTELY everything the user does.. so much for privacy regulations. Recently iPhone users complained about their banktransfer-app for not being safe. They really don't know what they are using in the first place!
