Can I set up phone while waiting on sim card?

I purchased a Moto x4 unlocked on Amazon. I will be receiving the phone today but won’t get my sim card from republic until Wednesday or Thursday. Can I set up all the Google stuff while I am waiting on my sim card, or will that mess things up? From experience, I know that the Google account set up can take a while and if I can do that first, once i get the SIM card I can just activate, transfer number, and be set.

Yes, you can do all the initial setup including
a) installing all the system updates
b) installing the RW app.

And then you can wait for the RW SIM to complete the activation process.
Taking these steps early will save time later on (as you noted)
It will not have any adverse impact on the activation process.
