If you already have a SIM Card and you are looking to use the device then it would not count as activate today. You would need to choose a new provider and activate the phone with that provider to get the cheaper price. Otherwise you would be paying more for the phone.
Honestly I don't know why phone manufacturers opt to do this kind of pricing as buying an unlocked phone would be more attractive if you already got the lower price up front and did not have to meet the requirement of activating a phone in store.Its just too many steps.
