Apple and AT&T have settled claims that the iPhone's 'visual voicemail' technology infringed patents held by Klausner Technologies, an Associated Press report said.
Klausner Technologies is a New York-based patent holding company founded by inventor Judah Klausner.
The visual voicemail feature lets iPhone users see a list of people who've left them phone messages and listen to the messages in any order they choose.
The three companies said in a joint filing this week in US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas that they've resolved Apple's and AT&T's portion of a larger patent lawsuit Klausner filed, the Associated Press report said
They asked the court to dismiss the case.
Judah Klausner said that Apple and AT&T have agreed to take out licenses on the technology, joining eBay's Skype division, which last month also settled a lawsuit filed by Klausner over a visual voicemail feature in Skype's VoIP service.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Representatives for Apple and AT&T did not immediately return emails seeking comment.
Klausner's lawsuit over visual voicemail includes several defendants, most of whom have now settled.
