Funny like they as for $5M and they probably got an extra charge of... 50$ on their data plan... GG US couple, they'll get... 0$!
They should have bought an Android phone. And would not have such troubles from the start.
(Hey, if those two are trolling why can't I?) :P

Which is (Escape from jail term) used by my brother(which has autism btw). And never had let go of the tablet since he's enjoying using it. Meanwhile, I have an android tablet which is a samsung galaxy tab 4. Which I only enjoy using it to play downloaded videos. But, for apps. It's a choosy one. You cannot even play snapdragon optimized apps or even tegra apps on the samsung tab 4 without rooting it.
AnonD-338467, 25 Oct 2015It's so funny from someone get only free apps talking about premiumOn android. Can they provide the apps that I want? For example. If IOS has monster hunter freedom unite. What's an alternative for the android if the developer didn't announced any android version of the game?

This is where Android OS used in Samsung and others excel!
Common Apple, how hard it is to prompt/warn user first when using any function in iPhone, iPad? Still unbelievable when my iPhone 6 Plus, 6S and iPad restarted by itself without any prompt telling me what or where the hell my iOS devices going wrong.

No such problem in Android though. If you get an update you get all the features that come with it.

My last 2 phones only came with a bit of paper that showed how to insert the SIM and MicroSD and where the microphone/speaker is.

[deleted post]Android, High IQ? I don't even enjoy having an android phone cause of the lack of premium apps. Same goes for the firmware updates for the OS. Which ios 9 still supports a 4 year old tech. While those 4 year old android devices were never been updated to the latest android version.
These people were truely blessed with extraordinary intelligence.

There is no instruction about the feature in manual. It is an IOS9 new feature. Apple only updated their website regarding the feature after the couple complained. Plus, there is no turn off feature in iphone 4s and ipad 2. The law suit is pretty reasonable to me.
This country is so lawsuit-happy. Almost every little thing is made into a federal case whether it makes sense or not. I get that such laws are there to protect consumers' rights against corporation abuse, but come on! $5M in "damages" because you didn't read your damn manual on how to turn OFF the phone data feature? Basically demanding money for something that's the couple's fault. Seriously? oh lols
For me this is a user error more or less...here in Philippines even a 7 yrs old kid knows the functions of an iPhone, its feature etc. Before Apple release the IOS9 its clear in the keynote that it was explained breifly the Assist wifi feature. As an iPhone user u should familiarize the different function of its feature... Its like you owned a car and u only know how to drive forward but you don't know how to the in reverse.
AnonD-446990, 24 Oct 2015Isn't this the second time Apple got sued? :/Yes. It was just last week sued by a university for patent infringement. Now sued by a couple from Florida for false advertising on Wifi Assist feature. Don't bother. Apple fan said $200million charges last time is no big deal for Apple. This $5million sum is just small matter for them. Meh.
