Default [Q] Flashing ROMs while waiting for SIM to arrive--safe?

So I just got my awesome Nexus 5 in the mail.

I am still waiting on my Straight Talk SIM Card to activate it.

New to GSM so never really dealt with SIM card stuff before.

Is it safe to set everything up on the phone, root it, flash ROMs etc before I activate the phone?

Yes it's safe. I would unlock the bootloader, flash a custom recovery, then make a nandroid. Also, save the nandroid off the phone. Then have fun
