05/27/2014 Apple Faces Lawsuit for Missing Text Messages

iPhone owners are reportedly finding that they no longer receive text messages  after switching to an Android or other device. This is due to an old bug in Apples iMessage service. The problem is caused by the way Apples iMessage has been developed. It is a separate messaging system unlike any other SMS app and Apple uses end-to-end encryption, which means it is totally secure. When a user signs up for iMessage, their number is stored in a separate database that is accessed when another iDevice wants to ping them with a message. So your contacts device knows the other person is using iMessage and does not send an SMS but an iMessage IM. For numbers not in the database, an SMS is sent, which would entail carrier charges.

However, the problem arises when switching to another device. When your contacts with iMessage send you a message, it keeps looking for your Apple device ID, as it had been registered in the past. So it keeps trying to send you an iMessage IM instead of an SMS. The SMS is never delivered and naturally, the iMessage is not either.

This has led to a new class action lawsuit in Federal District initiated by Adrienne Moore who switched from an iPhone to a new Samsung Galaxy S5. Moores suit sought class action status for all users who may be in a similar situation, which could end up running into thousands of potential victims. It asks for Apple to fix iMessage so that users can exit the ecosystem without any issues and has asked for punitive damages to the affected class members.

05/14/2014 Text Message Ends a High Speed Chase

A woman who thought she had successfully dodged police in a high-speed car chase admitted defeat after receiving a text message from the officers that urged her to hand herself in.

St Kilda police texted the 22-year-old Reservoir woman after she failed to stop during a car chase on St Kilda Road just after 1am on Tuesday.

The woman has since been charged with reckless conduct endangering persons, evading police, driving in a dangerous manner and at dangerous speed, and other traffic offences.


05/13/2014 Very Expensive Text Message

One careless text message ended up costing a Buffalo, NY-area man $53,000, the Buffalo News reported earlier this week. Louis J. Billittier Jr. dumped his fiancee with a terse text message, breaking off their engagement. Apparently trying to calm down the situation, he then sent a fateful text: Plus you get a $50,000 parting ring. Enough for a down payment on a house. Each of those 90 characters ended up having a price tag of roughly $600.

New York state law usually sides with men, giving them the right to demand back an engagement ring if a wedding never takes place. But the man’s text message using the term parting ring seemed to indicate that his former fiancee was entitled to keep the 2.97-carat diamond ring.
