If I buy a SIM card and the T-Mobile One plan online today, does my billing cycle start today or when I activate the SIM?

    If I buy a T-Mobile SIM card and the T-Mobile One plan today on the T-Mobile site, will my billing cycle start today (and will I be billed today) or does my billing cycle start when I activate the SIM card (activate the T-Mobile One service)? It says it must be activated in the U.S. on the T-Mobile network before going on an international trip, and I'll need it on an international trip next month.

     

    My issue is that I'm leaving on the international trip on May 4th, and I don't need the service until then, so I didn't want to sign up online today and be billed for a half-month (now until May 4th) that I won't use. Is there a way to avoid that and just start the billing cycle around May 4th or a few days earlier?
