I am going to the US for 3 days but want to activate the US add-on when I get there.  Can I do this? And does the 3 days start as day 1 being the day you activate it or does it go forward like counting 24hours? Because I arrive in Austin just after midnight so it seems like a waste to activate it the day before if that counts as 1 of the 3 days...

You get the hours left in the day you add the US Add-on, plus 72 hours ending at midnight 3 plus days later. In your case, you could initiate the add on at the Canadian airport and have 3 full days in Austin, starting once you land before it expires.

David's answer is really helpful: the rest of the day you sign up and 3, 10, or 30 days is much better than including the day you signed up.

Do they send you a text back when you activate it?

You should get a confirmation text yes.
