Apple’s iPhone 4 antennas have been the subject of much criticism and grief throughout the tech community since the device’s recent release. Reception was certainly not the only complaint, but it has definitely been the most frequent one.

iPhone 4 from AppleNow it looks like users are ganging up on Apple and going after the company on the legal front. AppleInsider is reporting that a number of lawsuits have already been filed. Neil Hughes writes:

Numerous lawsuits were filed this week against Apple, as a number of consumers hope to take the company to task over reception issues that arise with the new iPhone 4 when the left side of the device is covered with a hand.

At least three class-action complaints were filed in California, Maryland, and Texas. The largest was filed in a U.S. District Court in Oakland, Calif., and has a list of 11 plaintiffs included in the complaint, residing in California and New Jersey. The other two each include one plaintiff.

This week, Engadget pointed out that a job posting for antenna engineers was made by Apple the same day people started complaining. Boy Genius Report has an interesting article about Apple’s troubleshooting process.

Other iPhone 4 complaints have included camera malfunctions, supply, screen discoloration, scratchable cases, switched volume keys, and search limitations to name a few (via the Huffington Post). These haven’t stopped the phone from selling though.
