If I restore my 4S will I need to Reactivate it like when I first received the phone?
I think you do. And also if you put a different sim card in it.
No. It still needs a SIM card, but only takes like five seconds, and doesn't ask you for the zip code/SSN. It won't work (unless it's unlocked) without a SIM card, but doesn't still need to do the activation process again.
I had to activate with my sisters SIM because I had purchased it on her account. So I could now restore without using her SIM?
From now on, you can use your SIM when restoring. Only the initial activation needed to use her SIM.
