I don't get the 'can't sell "free" incentives that come with mobile phone contracts" thing...

You can sell a mobile phone that came on contract, but not the "free PS3" that comes with it. Right.... See: http://www.e2save.com/orange-contract-phone/LG+KP500+Cookie/4/COOKIE/bespoke/SONYPS3…

See:

http://www.e2save.com/orange-contract-phone/LG+KP500+Cookie/4/COOKIE/bespoke/SONYPS3SIM#orangetariffs

LG Cookie, £30 per month, over 24 months, so £720, with "free PS3".

Or:

Identical contract, but £420.15 cashback instead.

Common sense tells us that the PS3 is costing that £420.15, although avoiding any cashback redemption issues. It's certainly not free!!!

So, can someone clear this up for me?

Or any thoughts from HUKD posters?

Post #131 onwards refer.

In addition, worth highlighting how difficult your example would be to ensure no profiteering would take place. Mobile contracts can be downgraded after x amount of months and repeatedly so afterwards. We're not going down that route.
