Purchase phone now, activate and start paying monthly later?

I am currently studying abroad until May and therefore don't need a phone until then. If I pre-order the IPhone SE and pay the initial upfront cost of the phone can I delay activating it therefore avoiding the monthly cost until May? Or would I be charged from the date that the phone is ordered?

Is preorder available for the ST at Koodo? If you buy it at Apple no one will ask you to activate the phone!

You get billed once it's shipped to you, so this is not possible unfortunately. "Activate" means a billing account is created so you can't delay it.

Your other option is to buy the phone full price from Apple once it's released and then sign up for Koodo service later.
