Whoa, escalation much? Take a peek as XDA member MicBeast files a class action lawsuit against both T-Mobile and Samsung over their apparent holding back of updates to telephones (specifically of Android 2.2 Froyo and 4G speeds to the Samsung Vibrant.) He says he's secured a lawyer, filed the lawsuit, and have explained all issues with them (the lawyers) and they agree that he has a very strong case.
MicBeast says that Samsung and T-Mobile have broken the law! He says they've violated the law concerning Unfair and Deceptive Consumer Business practices in the following ways (his words):
they have continuously lied to us about the hardware, and software reliability of this phone, they promised us updates (to 2.2! Not the functionally dead JI6 2.1!) over and over, NOW they plan to release NEW galaxies without updating the old ones they currently have The GPS is clearly a hardware defect. There are just too many issues with this phone and the Customer service reps have been combative even bullying and threatening customers!
a clear violation of US law
MicBeast says that everyone is to email him with any issues they've had with the Fascinate to his inbox at SinistaBeatz@GMail.com - and I'd assume if you want to get in on the case somehow.
Do you think he's got a case?
