For questions regarding phone activation.

"Activation" is the process by which a cell phone is configured to use the carrier's network, get its initial configuration, and, in the case of Android, establish the primary Google account to be used with the device.

In most cases, activation occurs only once, when you first buy the phone. However, in other circumstances, you may need to go through the activation process again, such as after a factory reset.
