The idea of having a cell phone and just using it for making and receiving telephone calls nowadays is just quite preposterus, 'it is so 90's' as my daughter would say. It has evolved into an all singing and dancing smartphone which, as well as a fashion accessory can do all sorts of things that we really do not need. But, for $9, a perfectly good brand new phone is unbelievable, it is the price of what is now the basic technology.
That is the price of a pint of beer in town !!!

It is the price of ditching old stock on to the market so they don't have to pay for disposal. Very few people want a non-smart phone these days, there is no market for them, even at this run out price.
