@Magnus : They are 2 different systems, I don't think you could start paying when it is transfered from Telus.
They normally activated the SIM shortly after it shipped, so you don't have to wait for a long shipping (1,2 days). The porting from Telus is also quick (30minutes - few hours). Overall, if you would like to do online, it takes 1,2 days.
As there are a delay in order processing as of now, you might have to wait for the order to be processed (7-10 business days).
If you do it in store ($30 connection fee might apply), the transfer could be immediate.
