Default what mean if a phone costs $199.99 if you get a 2 year contract with it

I want to get the LG Optimus G from AT&T. They said it costs $199.99 with the 2 year contract. What do they mean by "2 year contract?"

It means you HAVE to have that phone service for 2 years, sometimes they let you quit the service early, but for a big fee. Other times they don't let you quit early

It means that you determine what you want, such as unlimited texting, 400 talk minutes a month, and a data plan for a set monthly price for a period of no less than 2 years. You can upgrade your service but not downgrade. If you decide to stop using ATT within the 2 years, you have to pay an early termination fee, which decreases as the contract progresses. It's usually about as much as it would cost to ride out the contract.
At the end of the 2 years, you can keep going with what you have, or upgrade to a new phone at a cheap price in exchange for agreeing to another 2 year contract.
An iphone costs more than $199. They sell it for that price because they make their profit off the monthly charges, not the cost of the phone.
