You'll probably have to go back to at least stock based to activate later, FYI, in case you're going to flash AOSP/CM.

Sent from my Sprint Samsung Galaxy SIII on TouchWiz 4.4.2 with Wicked X v6.5, Ktoonsez' latest kernel and the latest Philz Touch Recovery.

It's TW based, so you're fine to flash it before you activate. You just won't know that everything's working perfectly until you have voice/data, etc..

You're making a good choice coming to the wicked x ROM. I've been running it since day one and its perfect (IMO)
