Not a bit. I bought mine at the contract price, 6+ 128. I have had my 4S for over 2.5 years so I am due. I work, it's my $$, I probably use my phone more than any other one thing I own. I'll probably keep this 2+ years as well. As soon as the charge hits my card I'm paying it off (gotta get those air miles 1st!). Zero interest paid. Zero guilt. I wouldn't feel any different if I had to pay full price either. Enjoy it!
If you feel "sick" after any purchase because of price, perhaps you are living beyond your means and should not have purchased the item to begin with. If ever I have buyer's remorse because of the price I paid, that's the day I will need to do some deep introspection of my financial responsibility and habits.
Got a 128gb 6+ off contract for over $1k, and have no regrets. The iPhone is the one device that I use most constantly every day of the year.
Right, the nominal price may appear high, but we use our phones more than any other device and have it with us everywhere we go. If we consider the amount of actual usage, it's probably the most cost effective of any of our purchases.Got a 128gb 6+ off contract for over $1k, and have no regrets.

If it's your money then you should be proud of working for it. Sure, you could've used that money for an actual cause, but at the end of the day, it's your money and its nobody's business to tell you what to do with it.
Even if I paid full off-contract price of $1000, we are talking about less than $3.00 a day for something I use all day every day. On-contract for the Cadillac version is still something under $1.50/day.Nope, I budget for a new phone every two years.
Thanks for the response, why do you upgrade you iphone every year and your ipad every two years?Nope, I don't feel guilty at all. I work hard to provide for my family, and to have enough money for annual iPhone upgrades, iPad upgrades every two years, and iMac/MBA/MBP upgrades every 5-7 years. It's called budgeting.
