GSM phones don't require 'activation' in the way of some others, just the insertion of a properly coded SIM card. I do not think that a network can remotely lock your handset, although there might be some technical people here that can answer that question better? The question of rights is a complicated one, as it will all be governed by 1) The terms of YOUR specific contract (even month to month clients have a contract) and 2) the general law of contract in your jurisdiction. There is little light that the general tenets of contract law can shed on the situation in most North American jurisdictions.
