Has the Nexus 4′s $299-$349 price changed your mind about signing a contract simply to get the best phones cheaply?

I know that the reason I didn’t switch to pre-paid contractless service was that all the new superphones I wanted cost about $700, which was hard to swallow when the same phone was available on a 2-year contract at just over $100 (with promos and discounts).

However, the Nexus 4 pricing from Google changed that for me and I immediately canceled my contract and switched to pre-paid with it.

Has this practically half-off pricing of an amazing superphone at $299-$349 changed your mind about switching to pre-paid and still enjoying the latest and greatest of phones, or at least made you think about it?
