Apple has started sending out $15 checks to iPhone owners who participated in a class action lawsuit over iPhone 4 antenna issues. More details about the lawsuit can be found here.

Re: Apple iPhone 4 Settlement Class Action Distribution Payment


Enclosed is a check in the amount of $15.00 representing your settlement award in the Apple iPhone 4 Settlement Class Action Settlement. The amount of your settlement award has been calculated pursuant to the terms of the Settlement that was approved by the court.

Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement, the enclosed check must be cashed by July 16, 2013; after that date, the check will be void and will not be reissued.

You should consult your tax advisor or accountant as to the tax treatment of the settlement award you are receiving under this Settlement because the Settlement Administrator and the attorneys representing parties in the case cannot provide you with tax advice.

Very truly yours,

Apple iPhone 4 Settlement Claims Administrator

$15 divided by how many people involved Is somewhat decent, but I do agree I should have been a little more. I bet it would been double that or more if it wasn't for the greedy lawyers taking their cut. In my honest opinion This whole antenna gate thing was a scam/ easy payday anyways. The lawyers are the only ones who make out. When a company starts making boat loads of money expect to see scams like this. Happens all the time.
