Submission + - T-Mobile mistakenly sells cellphone with porn (blorge.com)

destinyland writes: "T-Mobile sold a woman a new cellphone, but when she got home it had 60 X-rated pictures on it. T-Mobile's phone rep wrongly insisted she or her boyfriend had taken the photos, or they'd received them via email and added them to their phone's photo gallery. T-Mobile later admitted an "isolated incident," and said they were taking "appropriate measures" to correct it. Apparently the number they assigned the phone corresponded to an already-existing photo gallery.

Besides the corporate incompetence, there's privacy implications. Whose naked photos did T-Mobile just hand out at the mall? And if you have time, watch the local newscasters feigning alarm."
