Apple and AT&T hit with third class action suit over iPhone battery

Apple's lack of a roll-your-own battery replacement for the iPhone seems to be causing quite a stir with Apple and AT&T's legal departments as a third class action lawsuit has been thrown at them. Plaintiffs Zoltan Stiener and Ynez Stiener cite breach of contract, fraud, and violations of California law for not letting users know that the replacement costs can be upwards of $100 -- we're assuming this includes the cost of a rental replacement iPhone. Apple has settled in previous cases of this type -- well, in an iPod case at any rate -- so we'll have to wait and see how it all comes out before jumping on any class action bandwagons.
