I tried Google, but pretty much failed there. That said, I have a question.

When a company manufactures a new phone, does the company pay the carrier to market their phones? Or is it the other way around?

Like, say Motorola comes out with a new phone. Do they have to pay a company (Like AT&T, Verizon, etc.) to market their phone?

Another example, because I feel like it may be differentiate in the whole argument (the one I'm having with a friend now, in case you were wondering)

Let's say Apple makes a new iPhone. They currently have an exclusivity contract with AT&T, which is going to be terminated this January. They will soon release it on Verizon. Do they pay Verizon to market the new phone?

Well, I don't think so.

If you look at any current ads (Like the Motorola Droid ads) you won't see any carrier sponsorship, which would be part of an ad.

I'm not sure, though.

Some phones you do. Mostly the iPhone though.
