The reason the kid filed a suit against Apple is over a iPhone repair dispute. Who claimed the company tried to give her money in exchange for her silence, court officials said Friday.
Lee Chul-ho had filed a suit on behalf of his 13-year-old daughter in October, seeking 294,000 won (US$251) in compensation after an Apple service center refused to fix her iPhone 3G for free despite its one-year warranty.
The service center claimed the owner was responsible for the damage to her cell phone, citing discoloration of a sensor that indicated water damage, which the warranty does not cover. Lee denied any responsibility and said the same kind of malfunction in the water damage sensor had been reported overseas.
Her Father Said:
“Although we filed the suit to receive the repair fees, the ultimate purpose of the suit was aimed at demanding that Apple improve its service policy so that people facing similar situations can get back unjustly paid repair expenses,” Lee said. “There is no point of raising the suit if only one individual gets compensation.”
