An AT&T iPhone user successfully sued the telecommunications firm for throttling his unlimited data plan.
A small claims court in California awarded Matt Spaccarelli $850 for throttling, which slows down data sent to or from a smartphone for the duration of a billing cycle to preserve network capacity.
AT&T has 17 million data plans that might be subject to throttling, according to this AP article about Spaccarelli's victory.
In other news, Android-powered smartphone owners face a new security flaw.
A cyber security researcher found that users who open links sent from malicious text messages might unwittingly allow their phones to be remotely commandeered. If that happens, a hacker could record calls or view texts, emails and location data.
Though the researcher only tested Android phones, he said iPhones are at risk, too.
