This is too broad a question. You have a couple days, read up on the Forum, take notes.
Like others said: Perhaps most important, don't start modding the phone right out of the box and don't be installing everything under the sun [that is, programs mentioned on BBF].
Read the Forum for info on cases, skins [like Best Skins Ever] and buy those two things immediately. You need to protect the Pearl, it is fragile.
When you get the phone, search and read BBF and over the next few weeks set up the phone the way you want, remembering that there is no need to do "everything" members talk about in here.
