Apple might be facing a consumer lawsuit amid complaint over the iPhone 4's antennae's ability to detect networks.

US law firm Kershaw, Cuttiner and Ratinoff is appealing for iPhone 4 owners who have been affected by reception problems to come forward, presumably to launch a class action against Apple.

A spokesperson for the lawyers said: "If you recently purchased the new iPhone and have experienced poor reception quality, dropped calls and weak signals, we would like to hear from you."

It seems that, for the time being, the firm is extending feelers to gauge public reaction and decide whether or not it would be sensible to tackle Apple. The self-proclaimed "Lawyers who Fight" might well be just the legal pugilists to wring a quick buck from the smartphone manufacturer.

The current iPhone 4 issue centres around the fact that some users find that they lose network connectivity when holding the mobile in a particular manner. Apple this week admitted there is a problem and it is working to find a fix.

The law firm that is looking to get itself embroiled with Apple has previous taken on other corporate goliaths, most notably Facebook and game developer Zynga, which it sued over allegedly misleading promotions offered by third party firms via the popular social networking game Farmville.
