Two iPhone customers have filed separate lawsuits accusing Apple of unfair business practices and misleading advertising.

They claim the Cupertino company knew the iPhone4 had reception problems, but hid the defect. Both lawsuits are aiming to become class action suits, representing all customers with the iPhone 4.

People are complaining the phone loses signal strength if the lower left corner of the device is covered with the hand. The phone's antennas are built into the metal frame.

The company has not responded to the lawsuit.
