Well, the T-Mobile legal department is keeping busy.
According to a recent article in Light Reading (link below), there is a new class-action lawsuit over the shut-down of the Sprint network.
Filed in Washington the suit claims that Sprint had sold about 75,000 phones for its own 5G network prior to the close of T-Mobile’s purchase of the operator- knowing that it would be shutting the network down soon.
From the article:
“Plaintiff brings this consumer class action lawsuit because Defendant [T-Mobile] developed, marketed, distributed, and advertised the launch of their 5G Network (the “Network”) without disclosing to its customers, including former Sprint customers following the merger between Sprint and T-Mobile, that they intended to shut down older networks without adequately addressing Network incompatibilities for numerous devices dependent upon them, including but not limited to the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 ThinQ 5G, HTC 5G Hub, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, and various tablets, security systems, and other devices,” according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit also claims that T-Mobile didn’t provide suitable replacement devices for its own 5G network as it was shutting down the Sprint 5G network.
