AT&T, Apple Start Paying $30 to 'Bait and Switch' iPad Buyers
by Karl Bode 08:51AM Monday Jul 28 2014 Tipped by IPPlanMan See Profile
back in 2011 both AT&T and Apple were sued for pitching a $30 unlimited data plan for the 3G-enabled iPad, then withdrawing the unlimited data plan option one month after Apple began selling the device. Last year AT&T and Apple settled the lawsuit, and those impacted users are now receiving checks for $40. Don't spend it all in one place, kids!

Hey. It's better than the $1.30 most people get out of a class action suit. I got my check past week.

How do these companies keep getting away with this kind of crap with only the lawyers making out in the deal? They love screwing the consumer...

And get this -- despite all that companies are still afraid of class action lawsuits and the latest trend seems to be modifying the mandatory EULAs in order to make us waive our rights to class action lawsuits altogether!

Should have bought AT&T stock. You could have made more than $30/yr. since 2011 just owning 20 shares.
AT&T is a S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrat.

Simple! Because we continue to have a failing court system corrupt and controlled by money and power!

Did both iPads have 3G data capabilities? I bought 2 iPads but one was WiFi only. I got one check.

Re: hmmm

Seems to me you should get another $40 check. On the check stub it says to call the Settlement Administrator 1-800-248-1504 with any questions.
