I've actually got to agree with Angilion. "Free" would imply that you can have the phone without regard to a contract. By requiring you to have a contract in order to get the "free" phone, it ceases to be free as there is a requirement. If you want the phone without the contract it will cost you money. "No additional charge for phone with signed contract" would be accurate.
The phone ITSELF is free, meaning you don't have to pay the amount the phone is worth just to own the phone. USING the phone, on the other hand, is what they`re charging for, which from what you posted the ad even says. It`s not contradicting itself at all.

i think its just a misplaced modifier to blame i think they meant the deal is valued at five dollars, and is going to be free with the $10 purchase, just a thought *shrug*
