Why are phones so cheap?

It seems crazy – why would a top cell phone manufacturer sell you a one cent cell phone?

The truth is simple: the cell phone company is not in the business of selling cell phones. They are arranging contracts for cell phone service. Offering you a phone that normally retails for hundreds of dollars is a great way to get a new customer for cell phone service.

Fortunately it works out well for both of you. The phone company signs up a new customer and you get a great new phone for pennies along with a low-cost cell phone plan to use with that phone right away.
