Why are contestants allowed to phone a friend in "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" Isn't that cheating?

No, it isn't cheating. That's within the rules of the game.

Phone a friend is part of playing the game. It is not cheating if they allow it.

It's an advantage, yes. But it's not cheating.
It's only cheating if you have an unfair advantage over other contestants. Everyone who plays "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" gets the option to phone a friend.

It’s not cheating if It’s apart of the game .You are allowed 3 lifelines to help you
Phone a friend doesn’t always help as the person may not know the answer or may not finish the question in time.

If it is part of the game...how is that cheating? That's like saying that the Community Chest cards in Monopoly are cheating or the Draw 4 cards in Uno.
