If you can activate, just do it right away. No need to jailbreak first.

Worse case senario, jailbreak and if you cant get er all going once its activated you could always restore, activate and rejailbreak. :)

You did not tell what phone you have and what firmware and baseband is installed. Also, this looks like a separate question. Just post a new question.

If you can't activate, use PwnAge (Mac) or Sn0wBreeze (Win) to hacktivate. Then unlock so you can use any SIM. Else wait for the official activation and then just jailbreak with greenpois0n. Use RC6, else you will have to do this:
