    This is a very simple question... Will flashing WP8 with Nokia Software Recovery tool make you activate your phone again? A yes/no question

    Darn, there has to be somebody who has used NSR to go back to WP8!

    What do you mean by activate? With your carrier? If so, the answer is no.

    Yeah, with the carrier. I can't activate my phone because I'm not at the US right now :(.

    So, if I flash my phone, I will not have to call Verizon's activation number right? (Just confirming once more, because I would be in a very sticky situation if I had to).

    I use AT&T; I've never had to do anything with the carrier when the flashing the phone including when flashed with the recovery tool last week. You have a 4G LTE SIM Card from Verizon, right? It would not need to be activated again; restoring the software on your phone is unrelated.
