How long can I wait to activate a phone once it comes in the mail? And do I have to pay the first months bill at the time of activation?

you should activate it right away as there is no benefit in waiting.

Since you ordered online it seems, you already made a payment for the phone, your next payment will be when the bill arrives, not before.
