I was told the job was salaried, they offered to me but as a freelancer. Can I use this as a negotiating strategy?

I want this job and told them I'm down, but the final details have yet to be sorted out. Is there anything I can negotiate for considering I'll be working 40 hours full time in office but without benefits and as a 1099 freelancer?
I'd need a smartphone for the job and I'm not eligible for an upgrade. Should I ask them to pay for me breaking my contract (about $122) or to pay for the new smartphone ($99)? Or is it within reason to pay for me to consult with/hire a cheap accountant to withhold and file quarterly earnings so I don't get screwed at the end of the year?
How can I use this to my advantage?
