Think twice if invited to the ‘Shack: Radio Shack sells iPhones preloaded with porn

Apparently a customer who purchased an iPhone for herself and her daughter found a nasty surprise on their ‘new’ devices.  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that a 13-year old received a phone, complete with pornographic content (didn’t specify movies or pictures, we want to know, you know…for science)  which sent her to a few weeks of counseling.  No word on if the mother went to counseling.

The phones, which were sold as new, were obviously refurbs – – my guess, by Radio Shack and not Apple.  As a result of this awkward moment for the Shack, the mother is suing for unspecified damages.  Radio Shack offered to exchange the phones…but, if this story is found to be true, RS should have offered much more than that, say…the phone(s) and a year’s worth of service and a very public apology?  Yes?

    Damages? WTF? They should, if anything, charge the mother extra.
