A peeved iPhone customer has filed a lawsuit against Apple and AT&T, and surprisingly it’s unrelated to dropped calls or spotty network performance. It has to do with the multimedia messaging, which still isn’t available for iPhone customers in the United States.

Filed in Ohio by customer Deborah Carr, the lawsuit alleges that Apple and AT&T used tricky marketing to deceive consumers into believing multimedia messaging would become available for iPhones by June.

“Millions of customers, as a result of the false and deceptive representations and concealments of Apple and AT&T purchased the 3G and 3GS, waiting for the wonderful day in June 2009 when the new application would be available which would allow MMS,” the court filing [pdf] states. “Unfortunately, after downloading the new 3.0 Software Update application, MMS still did not work on both the 3G and 3GS.”

The complaint acknowledges that Apple and AT&T provide a disclaimer stating “MMS support from AT&T coming in late summer,” but the lawsuit says the font is so small it’s barely readable. [read]
