I think part of the bigger picture is this.... if you buy a phone at Amazon or Walmart, they arent really specialists. They are people who work at Amazon or Walmart. They may have some knowledge about products and services but its basic. When you go to best buy or even a retail store for your wireless carrier you pay more for several reasons:
Person in store to answer your questions
Live demo and instruction on the phone
If you phone is messed up within the 30 days they can swap it out!
If you buy a phone at Amazon or Walmart and its defective, obviously one you have to mail back and you have no phone and at Walmart they have limted stock and you may not have a phone. Keep in mind that if you buy an AT&T phone for example at Walmart and its messed up you cant go to AT&T and have it swapped, you have to go to Walmart. The price may be cheaper but the time you spend dealing with it may or may not be worth it!! I buy everything at Best Buy, are they the cheapiest? Not always, but it evens out and I know when I buy something there that the person has a clue about what they are talking about. 40.00 is worth the piece of mind and if you have an issue. Also, if you get four units at Walmart and one is messed up will they have a 5th to replace it? They dont sell tons of phones like best buy and may not be able to just swap your device! Think long term and not just the one time saving!
Good luck and enjoy your new phones!
