    There are many low cost phones under $50, and many that cost $100 to almost
    $300 dollars. So my question is what is it in the technology or electronics
    of the phone that can allow for the difference in cost?

    No, there aren't.

    There are many phones *discounted* to $50 or less, but there are no phones
    that actually retail for that low an amount.

    It's definatly not the technology.

    Features. Things like cameras, more memory positions for say 500 phone book
    entries instead of 250, (some like) flip phones, bluetooth, infared etc.....
    It's the othere thngs that make them cost and not the technology.

    Boost Mobile's i215 is $49.90 flat out, no contract, nothing else.
