When you call up to get your phone registered, just remind them. They know anyway, because the serial number tells them when the phone is boxed.
As a double check, write down your minutes before your phone is set up. If new it will be zero. After they activate your phone, check that it is twice what you are allotted.
As far as the "life" goes, this serial number will have double minutes associated with it on the provider's computers. Ever after, this serial number will get double minutes however purchased.
Note that "life" does not mean "your life". It means the "life of the phone"; hence it is tied to the serial number.

The extra minutes are automatically added whenever you "top up" your phone.
