Contact EA. If they can't help you then you might need to buy the game again through origin.

Hey phenom did ea refresh your steam activation or did they give you another cd key to activate on origin? I'm trying to decide if i should buy this game or not but the activation thing is a deal breaker

That is correct. Contacting an EA Advisor will get your game code refreshed so that you can play again.
