    Report it as stolen to verizon (and the police), they will blacklist the IMEI so it cannot be used on other carriers.

    Verizon will tell the other carriers not to activate the phone with that IMEI since it was stolen. if you get it back you can tell verizon that you recovered the phone and they will un-blacklist the IMEI

    If you lost your phone Apple isn't going to give you a new one.
