I will say USCC buys the phone from the manufacture for more than that $85. Cell phone carriers do not make $ selling a device, they lose money but will eventually make it up in your monthly rate.

USCC also gives you the option to buy the phone with points, thereby eliminating the out of pocket cost. Talk with your local rep about how many points you have if you are on a Belief Plan.
