Does X1 TV box activate on the date on my bill

So I was on the phone for about three hours between yesterday and today trying to fix an issue with my new X1 box on a self-install, and I've been getting the error XRE-02021 (somehow it seems zero other people have experienced this before based on these forums) which says "This device needs to be rehit before we can continue. Please call [XFINITY] and we'll get this taken care of."

 

I'm just noticing on my bill, "Regular monthly charges," that the first date says Aug 04, 2019 (tomorrow as of this post) and now I'm wondering since it wasn't discussed on the phone whether my box won't actually turn on services until then. For the record, my internet and other online services do work.

 

I just want to check if I have a valid thought, because I already scheduled a technician for two days away and now I have a $70 service fee on my bill, which if the problem isn't of my doing when I'm trying to do a self-install then I have a problem with.

I just hooked up an x1 box for the first time and I'm getting this error as well. Spoke with support and they resent a signal, but no dice. They are having someone call me in the morning and possibly have a tech come out.
