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?

Re: 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.
