Hey Desmond, You can activate your sim anytime, is it a prepaid or a postpaid sim?

You can get your SIM card, and you won't get charged for your monthly bill until you activate your postpaid account. I recommend getting your sim the day you activate your postpaid account. I don't really want your sim while your waiting.

I might be wrong but monthly fees get charged a soon as the account is created... The activation has no role in that.

How are you getting your sim card?  If you get a sim card from a kiosk, then you dont have to activate the sim card right away.  

But if you are getting the sim online as part of a new phone and account sign up, the phone and sim will come pre-activated for you
