I'm guessing yes, you'll still have to pay the $299,as the early upgrade fee is just that:You're paying the $175 fee solely for the opportunity to purchase the phone at the subsidized price & that fee does not apply to the purchase price.
IMHO, you'd be better off w/one of the following :
1) Wait for a price drop.
2) Shop on some respectable sites such as ANDROID FORUMS CLASSIFIEDS,COWBOOM, etc... for a used one @ a fair price.
3) Wait for the NOTE3 to be released, which may coincidentally be available by the time you're upgrade eligible w/o paying an early upgrade fee.
