Porn photos on mobile phone
A STUDENT was shocked and disgusted to find her new mobile phone contained pornographic images of a female employee from a Cairns Dick Smith Electronics store where she had just bought the phone.
The $199 Samsung also contained an explicit image of a man.
The university student who purchased the phone said she discovered the graphic images among 49 photos stored on the phone.
"It’s sickening to think I’ve been using this phone near my face when it was used to take all of these photos," she said.
"What would’ve happened if that phone was bought for a child?"
"I’m not disgusted by what she did. What people do in their own homes is their business. But I’m disgusted that it was left on the shelf to be sold."

The shop sold her the display phone because it was the last one in stock, but she later contacted the store to complain that it was faulty because she could barely hear callers talking.
She then accessed the phone’s menu and discovered 49 images, including the female staff member in her Dick Smith Electronics uniform outside the store, two other people, and what appear to be various interior shots of a motel room.
A Dick Smith Electronics spokesman said the company was investigating the matter.
"We take any incidents of this nature very seriously and we will investigate it fully," he said.
"We’ve asked the customer to bring us the phone to ascertain the nature of the images.
"We’ll decide on a course of action after the investigation is completed."
The spokesman said the female staff member would not comment on the matter while the investigation was still under way.
The woman who bought the phone and her partner met Dick Smith Electronics’ area and state managers late yesterday in a bid to reach a compensation settlement.
