Do you own an Alcatel One Touch Idol 2 smartphone? If yes, then you are eligible to claim benefits under a settlement agreement. Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is pleased to inform the owner of this smartphone that they can participate in this class action settlement. The consumers stated that TCL communication that is the phone maker compromised with the functionality of the phones through an update.
Consumers filed a lawsuit against the company in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. Lead plaintiffs alleged in their lawsuit that the defendants removed LTE Band 12 functionality by releasing a software update on their Idol 3 smartphone.
The Alcatel Company advertised and promoted their smartphone with full Band 12 functionality. It is an important feature sought-after by many consumers because this feature offers service coverage when none would otherwise be available. T-mobile consumers were mainly affected by the defect because the company had advertised the product along with describing the advantages of Band 12, such as expanded and improved coverage.
