Apple to Pay $40 to Each iPad 3G Unlimited Data Subscriber

The scheme to lend unlimited data to possessors of the iPad 3G was scrapped by Apple about three years ago. This led to a lawsuit being filed against Apple which had dragged on in court for a while. The case has been put to rest after both Apple and AT&T agreed to pay the penalty.

When the unlimited data service was terminated, many subscribers felt they had been cheated. It was almost like they were seduced into the act of buying an iPad 3G and then left in the lurch. Also more payment was made for a cheaper service than should have been made. The settlement was overseen by District Judge Ronald Whyte in San Jose, California. 

As part of the agreement, Apple is to issue $40 checks to those who paid for the iPad 3G prior to June 7th, 2010. Additionally, those who did not use the service of AT&T will get a $20 monthly discount on the telecommunications company’s 5GB scheme for a full year’s time span. 

A lot of finger-pointing had taken place with Apple and AT&T being the main targets. Many people felt they had been hoodwinked and swindled. From February of next year, the checks will start being received by those who have been wronged. Apple and AT&T will have to be more careful in the future. Their image depends upon it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
