Apple's

new iPhone 4

may be the tech giant's

most successful product launch,

but the device's reception issues have prompted law firm

Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff (KCR)

to solicit impacted users.

Specialists in class action lawsuits, KCR is appealing to disgruntled iPhone 4 customers to come forward and contact one of their representatives. A note on the company's Web site

announces a "Consumer Investigation" into "iPhone 4 dropped calls and reception problems."

"KCR is currently investigating potential problems with the release of iPhone 4," explained the statement. "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."

Describing themselves as "injury attorneys," KCR is no stranger to the tech sector. Last year the law firm

launched a suit against Facebook and Zynga,

alleging that users of popular games such as

Mafia Wars

and

Farmville

have been hit with unauthorized charges.

Apple announced on Monday that it sold more than 1.7 million new iPhones within just three days, although reports of problems with the device's antenna continue to swirl around the phone. Many

Apple fans have dismissed the problem

although Apple, in a widely-reported statement, advised

people to avoid holding the phone in a specific fashion.

Apple has not yet responded to

TheStreet's

request for comment on this article.
