I'm looking at buying a phone throough the best buy websit, but it says "with activation today." does that mean the new phone will be active and my current one will stop working and I'll be without a phone until it arrives?

Active Today means the phone is set up for your carrier before it gets to you
Activate Later means it is an unlocked phone and you need to swap out your sim card.
Are you replacing an existing phone on your current carrier.
Typcially when you get the phone in the mail you would then go through the steps to activate it on your account and then your old phone would quit working.
This does not work with pre-paid accounts.

I am on Verizon and when I got my last phone it was pretty basic to get it going.
Just make sure you know all your passwords and user names
