Arsen Garibyan from Los Angeles filed last week a lawsuit against Sprint and Nextel of California because the mobile phone he purchased for his son in 2011 allegedly contains porn.
He sued for breach of contract, fraud, breach of the implied warranty of merchantability and negligent infliction of emotional stress.
Upon arriving home after purchasing the cellphone, his son discovered lewd images of the store's staff stored on the gadget, including full-body naked and genital-focused graphic pictures and videos.
Sprint, in an email, said the incident involved a retail store in Pasadena that sold Sprint products, but the employees whose images were stores in the phone were not Sprint workers. The telecom giant said it ended its business relationship with the erring outlet after the embarrassing incident and said it continues to investigate the matter.
It appears the retail outlet staff loves to do selfies on mobile phones, but the problem is they take the naked selfies variety on units that their store sell, not on their own handheld devices.
