No damage will come of restoring many times.
All restoring does is replace the software on the phone, and as this is a feature that Apple allows users to do - no, it won't harm the phone.
Also, I'm pretty sure it's common for carriers to activate phones for their users.
Flash memory does have a limited number of write cycles, but in the grand scheme of thing, restoring 5x is just a drop in the bucket. By the time the number of writes becomes an issue, we'll probably be at the iPhone 15GS
Many many write cycles. Something else will have failed by then!
Like the home button, or perhaps the screen, or the battery. Or, the 3G network could even be shut off by then to make room for 5G.
We're talking millions of write cycles here, and I would also guess that Apple's NAND flash storage systems use wear-leveling to extend the life even further (and also why it's a bad idea, not just a useless one, to defrag an SSD drive).
I just have to ask: why would you want to restore it 5 times in a row?
