How is it possible that so many smart phone apps are for free?

I am relatively new to the smart phone world. But what I already learned is that incredibly many apps are for free. I wonder how that is possible. During the last month I have spent some time myself developing a financial app for Android - my preferred smart phone. The app of course could be useful not only for me but also for others. So I put it into the Google Play Store. Since I made some effort with bringing the thing to life I am not ready to give it away for free but expect getting a reasonable price paid. What I wonder is are people in general expecting apps to be free anyway? Are there other models how to finance the development of smart phone apps?

Need hardware widget that endows phone with loud ring/alarm

Community Survey Alternatives

The county I live in would like to survey residents regarding their preferences on specific issues. I am familiar with survey monkey type internet surveys which we will likely utilize. However many residents do not have access to internet. So we would like to make the survey available in another way like calling an 800 number, answering questions with the phone's keypad. I have searched but cannot find this kind of product. Any ideas or other alternatives are hugely appreciated!

Smart and Thrifty?

Recommendations for an inexpensive smartphone/plan combination? My wife pays $40-50 for her dumb phone now. Would love to pay the same or not too much more, but actually be able to take pictures, text without 3 keys per character, and sync her calendar. web surfing would be nice but is optional if the calendar works. Google Calendar would presumably require a data plan; but is there a windows/outlook calendar that would not? She has Outlook at work.)

A dumbphone with email access?

Not-so-smart-phone filter: I'm looking for a Sprint-compatible cellphone with a full keyboard and the ability to read/send email.
