Below is the first part of an article by a Pete Pachal from mashable.com. It reads…
A California woman has kicked off a class action lawsuit against Apple over missing text messages. She claims that after she ditched her iPhone for an Android, Apple’s iMessagesystem prevented her from receiving “countless” texts after the switch, according to documents filed in a San Jose court.
The suit, first reported by Bloomberg, is based on the long-known Apple iMessage problem: If you ditch your iPhone for an Android (or any other kind of phone), there’s a chance you might not be able to receive texts from other iPhones.
Those iPhones are still assuming the recipients are using iPhones because they never logged out of iMessage. The problem worsens if the person associated only a phone number (and not an Apple ID) with iMessage, since logging out online becomes impossible.
