Are free gifts really free?

Are free gifts with mobile contracts really free? Or are the contracts more expensive to cover the cost??

Free gifts are most definitely build in to the price of the contract.
I went ballistic at a friend who got a 'Free' Xbox that he didn't want and was put in a quite expensive 2 year contract with a very basic phone that he ended up ditching in favour of his previous handset. He could have got the same 'contract' for £10 a month on a rolling one month instead of being tied in for so long.
And while there are people who fall for the 'Free gift' story, companies will continue to offer them
