I’m Suing AT&T. And So Can You!

If you’re not an AT&T customer sick of their dropped calls, you probably grin gleefully every time you hear about it and repeat your mantra “I’ve never had a problem with Verizon.”

Well I have. I can’t be a Verizon customer using what is still, oddly, the most advanced mobile phone in this country…if not on the planet.

So I, like 40% of all of AT&T’s new customers in 2007, decided to bite the bullet and switch carriers in order to get my mitts on this wonderful device only to discover that AT&T is the biggest phone company in the world, and still figuring out how to…umm…make their phones work.

But there’s good news.  Now you can be a part of a class action lawsuit against AT&T from the privacy of your own home.

The website worstiphoneever.com will provide you with a simple, downloadable utility in order to collect data relating to calls dropped from an iPhone.

So far the website has gathered information from over 16,45,372 calls from 859 people and discovered that the total percentage of dropped calls is around 5% (over 85,000 dropped calls total) which I thought was actually surprisingly low.

If your phone can’t successfully complete phone calls, it’s broken.  Which means, according to their data iPhones are broken 5% of them time…at least.  It’s like the original Nintendo…it COMES broken.  Only you can’t take the SIM card out of an iPhone and blow on it to make it work.

Is this really the best we can do?

Apparently, yes.
