A women has filled a class action lawsuit against Apple for an as-yet-undetermined amount for missing texts messages. She claims that after she switched from an iPhone to an Android, Apple’s iMessage system prevented her from getting several text messages after she switched over, according to documents filed in a San Jose, California court.

Apparently this has been an issue before. People who replace their Apple devices with non-Apple wireless phones and tablets are “penalized and unable to obtain the full benefits of their wireless-service contracts,” according to the complaint.

The text-messaging lawsuit, which seeks class-action status and undetermined damages, claims Apple failed to disclose that switching to a device other than one running on Apple’s iOS operating system would result in the interference.

The suit states that:

Apple tortuously interfered with the contract for cellular service between these putative class members and their cellular telephone carrier in that Apple’s actions prevented the subscribers from receiving all of their text messages, as they were entitled to obtain through their cellular wireless service contracts.

The suit also claims that Apple has never provided a way to fix this problem. Mashable found that at least one wireless carrier has approached Apple about addressing it, but Apple was reluctant to commit the necessary resources.
