Sprint HTC Evo 4G and Samsung Epic 4G Owners and Lessees File Class Action Lawsuit Complaint Against Sprint & Best Buy Over Sprint’s 4G Network.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against Sprint Solutions, Inc., Sprint spectrum L.P., Sprint Corporation (collectively “Sprint”) and Best Buy Company (“Best Buy”) (all collectively “Defendants”) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California (styled David Salvatierra v. Sprint Solutions, Inc., Sprint spectrum L.P., Sprint Corporation and Best Buy Company, Civil Action Case No. 10 CV2044 BEN ) alleging, among other things, that Sprint marketed and sold Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G cell phones (“Evo 4G”) and Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G (“Epic 4G”) cell phones as being able to access Sprint’s 4G network even though Sprint is allegedly only able to provide 4G service through Clearwire Corporation (“Clearwire”) whose 4G coverage is limited to only 53 markets in 22 states, according to the Sprint HTC Evo 4G and Samsung Epic 4G class action lawsuit complaint.
The Sprint HTC Evo 4G and Samsung Epic 4G class action lawsuit complaint reportedly alleges that Sprint 4G customers were billed for and required to purchase Sprint’s “Everything Data” plan and billed and charged an additional $10 fee specific to the Sprint 4G device for 4G access, but that Sprint allegedly failed to provide 4G access to most areas, purportedly in violation of state law, including breach of contract, and purportedly in violation of the federal truth in billing requirements.
The Sprint HTC Evo 4G and Samsung Epic 4G class action lawsuit complaint is reportedly brought on behalf of a putative class of all individual persons or entities, unless otherwise excluded, in California and any other state as the Court may determined to be appropriate who purchased, leased or otherwise acquired 4G cellular telephones from Sprint and were billed Premium Data Charges or other charges specific to 4G phones that were not properly imposed on their accounts at least starting in May 2010.
