Can I sign up and activate later?

I will be moving to a new apartment in about 2 months. My lease application has already been approved and I have my complete address with the unit number. I am in the process of setting things up, including internet.

I was wondering if I could order internet now and then activate it when I move in. I don't have my keys yet, so I am not sure if I ship to my current address or new one? I will be using the self installation kit. I don't want to be charged right now until I move in.

Then I suggest you wait to order till about 10 days or less before moving in to order service. 

On self installs billing begins when ATT activates the service not when you plug the gateway  in to start using service, this is covered in the Terms Of Service (TOS) agreement.
