Top dollar for a new, on-contract phone?

What’s your top dollar price for a new, on-contract phone? The last time my line was up for renewal, I (wisely) spent $99 (before a $99 rebate) on my Optimus S. I love it, but it was wildly outdated in about 10 minutes. Now I’m up again in September, and I’m thinking about the HTC One X (or the EVO One X or whatever they’ll call it). My issue is, how much am I willing to spend to attempt to stay “relevant” for as long as possible? What about you? What’s your limit on a new phone, knowing full well it’ll be outdated before you get a new one?
