(Newser) – Here's today's big "oops": Marcia Jones says she visited her local RadioShack to purchase what she thought were two new cell phones for herself and her 13-year-old daughter. But upon booting up the phones, they found pornographic images uploaded from the phones' previous owners, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Turns out the devices were refurbished, Jones' lawyer says. Now the family is suing both RadioShack and Sprint (which licenses the phones), claiming that the girl had to seek counseling after seeing the graphic images.
