It sounds like you want the company to give you a discounted price for not signing a contract which just makes sure they get the money they lose upfront on a device plus a litte more for the service on top.
They are a business so yeah they will charge your 150-250$ more then what they pay for the phones outright and some of that is to recoupe shipping fees they pay. If they didnt then they would go out of business.
Doubt me? Then go ahead and ask the price of any phone verizon sells and i will show you the invoice from the manufacturer just to show you that you talking out of your bum about things you know nothing about.
Btw the ave price for a nice smart phone is normally around 450$ and thats a fact that i would know since i do work for verizon.
