    Why would you be regretting buying an brand new iPhone 4S contract free for only $190?

    Enjoy it my friend.

    If you bought this brand at the Apple store it would have cost you $450+tax. $190 is actually a good deal.

    Thank you for you're replies. Since it was only used shortly I guess it's was a good purchase compared to other rough used ones on ebay

    Uh, unless you live in a tax free state, you will never pay MSRP in retail stores.

    The OP didn't have to sign a contract. If you get the "free" one you're paying for it one way or another.

    Well I got a mint condition black 16gb 4S for $270 a few days ago and didn't even think twice about it.

    I probably could have gone on swappa or elsewhere for cheaper but I didn't even care. This thing was still pretty much brand new and we all know how much that would go for.

    My gold 5S is for sale now waiting on the Iphone 6. :)

    I'll be your ex if I get a free phone

    ON TOPIC: I think it was an awesome price. 4S 16GB's are going around 220-250 on Kijiji and that's used sparingly and are older than a year so I think you got a great deal. Only bummer is that it's 8GB but if you can make it survive then you're good.

    Yes I got it contract free on ebay.. I def would not waste a upgrade on one of these. But the 8gb is fine since the phone is for a very basic user..

    Great price.

    I have seen a few users go back to the 4S from a 5s; they like the glass back and the stainless steel band.
