Apple must face a lawsuit in federal court over vanishing text messages. U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh said Apple has to hear the claim from Adrienne Moore, who says Apple blocked messages sent by iPhone users to her after she switched from an iPhone 4S to a Samsung Galaxy S5. Moore further claims that Apple's iMessage system interfered with her contract with Verizon Wireless. "Plaintiff does not have to allege an absolute right to receive every text message in order to allege that Apple's intentional acts have caused an actual breach or disruption of the contractual relationship," said Judge Koh. Just this week Apple released a tool that lets former iPhone owners delist their numbers from the iMessage service. The issue has been a problem for former iPhone users for years.

Don't get your hopes up

Apple cases aren't tried by anyone but Lucy Koh, and she is a corporate schill who NEVER rules against Apple. She may be making the pretense of justice by hearing the case, but the plaintiff has no chance whatsoever of winning. And this will continue to be the case until someone forces Apple to fight its battles in an unbiased court.
The American judicial system=best justice money can buy. 😕

And here we see the real reason they fixed iMessage...

They had the heads up a suit was coming down, so good a time as any to fix that "feature" we've known about for years.

They knew about the messaging issue with phones being locked and it breaking text messaging if people move away from iOS, I talked with them about it myself more than once in addition to the tons of reports on their near-worthless non-support forums. "They could always get another iphone".

I hope she wins, more people should sue huge companies that do shady stuff and don't care about resolving the issues they created.
I read the article about Apple finally fixing the problem and I was thinking "Finally"!

But now, I see that they really had no choice. It's sad that it had to resort to this first.
The instant I saw the article below about the fix I immediately thought 'so long have they been sitting on this before being forced to release it?'
