Can a trial become a full account?

So here's the deal. I ordered a MobileMe box for the $30 discount with my MacBook on June 16th. The box still hasn't shipped, and now that MobileMe is fully functional, I' like to begin using it, but as the box isn't here, I can't.

Therefore, I'm wondering if I set up a trial account, use all the info I want for the real account, and use it until the box arrives, can I then turn the trial into a full account with the authentication key?

it should work that way - that's exactly how i started my .mac account (though that was many years ago). i set it up using the free trial that came with my powerbook at the time, then i bought a box/code before the trial period was up, and entered it to turn it into a full account. everything i set up with the trial account - selected email address, all of the email sent/received in that account, etc. - was still there once i made it a full account - completely seamless transition...

Yes, it will work. All the box has in it is a code to activate the full account membership. It's just like macgirl said, everything just migrates seamlessly.
