Owners of the original iPad 3G have started to receive settlement claim forms related to a class action lawsuit. The Apple and AT&T customers receiving claims could be eligible for a $40 check from the settlement. US District Judge Ronald White gave the OK for settlement to iPad 3G buyers who picked up their tablets before June 7, 2010.
In order to qualify, customers must file a claim before February 3, 2014. The option to switch in and out of the AT&T unlimited data plan must have been a factor in their decision to purchase an iPad 3G. Also, the court must approve final terms for the deal before any checks are mailed.
