How long after activation does billing begin for monthly? I don't want to paying out my butt for everyday use if I don't have to be....

Billing begins the day you activate your phone. Your first billing period is pro-rated from when you signed up to the billing date. You are also charged services for the upcoming month in advance This occurs when anyone signs up with a provider. Similarly, when you change a plan,  both the old plan and the new are pro-rated for the portion of the month they were active. Here’s link for you describing the process.

Then go to "charges on my first bill"
So.... I bought the phone on the 20th, it shipped out on the 24th. So I would be paying for the first 5 days even though I didn't even have the phone? If so how much would that even be?

That's a different situation. You asked about activating your phone, not waiting while it ships.
Ok well I apologize for asking another question on top of my original one.
Do you possibly have the answer to my last question as well?

Hey Elyssa! Billing will start once you receive your phone and activate it. You will not pay for the time you don't have your phone. Let us know if you have any other questions!
