Former IOS User sues Apple over iMessage's SMS disappearance

Apple is being sued by a former iPhone owner, who switched to Android, over a bug in iMessage that prevents text messages from iPhones being delivered to her Android device.

According to Bloomberg Adrienne Moore Filed in a Californian district court, and claimed Apple interfered with cellular service contracts by preventing subscribers from receiving their text messages.

The problem is iMessage. The app lets iPhone users send text messages to other iOS devices over a wi-fi network when there's one available, thus avoiding the fee an operator typically charges for carrying a text message over their mobile network. Only the catch of this service is that it can make porting a mobile phone number to a non-iOS device problematic due to a bug in iMessage that makes it impossible to untangle the number from the messaging service.
The result is that when iPhone users try to send a text to that number, and that personne moved to an Android device, the message isn't delivered. Which is exactely what happened after Moore replaced her iPhone 4 with a Galaxy S5 earlier this year. According to the complaint.
