Yesterday we reported about new tool Apple provided to uncouple a phone number from iMessage system. Quite a few people missed texts which originated from iPhones when they switched to Other phones like Samsung Galaxy. We also mentiond about the lawsuit and if this step was taken as a result of the situation.
So today US District Court Judge Lucy Koh ordered that the company face claims it failed to disclose issues that customers would face if they switched from an iPhone to another device. Adrienne Moore, the plaintiff, alleges that upon switching to the Galaxy S5 from an iPhone 4, iMessage and/or the switch blocked the delivery of "countless" messages.
Judge said the case would move forward and Moore will have an opportunity to prove his case, if Apple violated California's unfair competition regulations.
"Plaintiff does not have to allege an absolute right to receive every text message in order to allege that Apple's intentional acts have caused an actual breach or disruption of the contractual relationship," Koh wrote.
