Dick Smith porno phone for sale
THE Cairns woman at the centre of the Dick Smith mobile phone scandal says she plans to sell the handset complete with x-rated photos on auction website eBay.
The university student told The Cairns Post she was selling the phone to recoup the $199 cost to buy it because Dick Smith Electronics is yet to offer her a refund.
She discovered pornographic photos of a Dick Smith Electronics female employee and a man among 49 images stored on the new phone.

The handset is expected to be listed on the auction site as "the original Dick Smith scandal mobile phone" with a reserve price of $200.
“We don’t want it, and apparently Dick Smith doesn’t want it, so we’re open to all offers and it will be on eBay from Monday,” she said.
“Reserve will be set at $200, which is what we paid for this second-hand phone that we thought was new.
“It’ll come in its original box with charger, dishonoured contract and 49 dodgy photos including those of the Dick Smith staff member, which some people might find entertaining.”
Dick Smith Electronics spokesman Benedict Brook said the potential sale on Ebay would hinder the company’s ability to investigate the matter.
The electronics giant this morning revealed it had interviewed all its staff at the store involved as it tries to hunt down the culprit that has caused it national embarrassment.
But the student, who was seeking compensation from the company over the incident, said she was disappointed by the way the matter had been handled.
“We haven’t heard a single thing from anyone at Dick Smith, not so much as an apology or offer of a refund or even where they’re at in the investigation,” she said.“We’re deeply disappointed in the way the thing has been handled and all we can do is to advise people to think twice about where they buy their mobile phones.”
