Disgruntled fanbois sought for iPhone 4 Apple prosecution

Owners with thumbs wanted

High performance access to file storage

A California law firm is trolling for iPhone 4 owners frustrated by flaws in their recently purchased Cupertinian handsets.

The firm, Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff LLP, as pointed out by Valleywag, is the same group of worthies that sued Facebook and Zynga late last year, alleging that "Most, if not all, of the online offers presented through Zynga are scams".

Now KCR is fishing for iPhone 4 users who "have experienced poor reception quality, dropped calls and weak signals", presumably in the hope of initiating a class-action lawsuit against Jobs & Co.

The firm may be mining a rich vein of discontent. Although KCR's call for complaints is limited to reception problems, the iPhone 4 has garnered a host of grievances: spotty displays, erratic Proximity Sensors, and screen scratches being among them.

While we applaud KCR's good ol' American ambulance chasing resourcefulness in trying to scare up a gaggle of clients in order to tilt against Cupertinian windmills, we fear that their quest may be a quixotic one.

After all, according to Apple, the reception difficulties being experienced by iPhone 4 owners are their own fault: they're holding them wrong. ®
