I had my Kindle deactivated after it was lost, potentially stolen. Has anyone recovered theirs and is Kindle really blocked from someone else trying to register it in their name?

Lydia, it will be blocked only if you request that from Amazon CS - deregistering it will only sever its ties to your account, so that finder or thief cannot purchase books at your expense.

Sadly, Amazon no longer provides assistance with finding or even returning found Kindles, doubtlessly for some obscure liability or privacy reason.
