California judge says Apple will face lawsuit over iMessage woes

Billy Steele

Switching from iPhone to Android or another mobile OS means you may encounter issues receiving texts, and the issue is going to land Apple in court. 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. Plaintiff Adrienne Moore alleges that upon opting for the Galaxy S5 to replace an iPhone 4, the switch blocked the delivery of "countless" messages. Koh said the case would move forward, and Moore should get a chance to prove whether or not the disruption violated California's unfair competition regulations. If you'll recall, Apple announced a tool a few days ago to help folks deactivate iMessage when switching to a non-iOS device -- ensuring texts from iPhone users still come through.
