I bought a new phone but want to wait till Christmas to activate it. Will I be able to wait?

Usually not. Generally AT&T force activates phones within a week of shipment. It is to prevent fraud and theft. If you purchase the phone as a gift, and told AT&T at the time that it was a gift, they may have reserved activation until Christmas. But you need to iron that out with them.
