Upgrading from an iPhone SE to an iPhone 8+

Should I restore my new iPhone 8+ to a backup from my old iPhone SE through iTunes first? Or should I activate my service first?

I feel like I should probably restore my new phone first and get everything set before I begin the activation process for my service. Any sort of advice helps, thanks.

Hey there! You can set up the device before activation; however, we recommend that you activate it first, just in case something wrong happens with the activation and the device needs to be reset.
