Lost my iPhone 8

I lost my iPhone 8 last night.  Can I use another iPhone X to keep the same phone number?  Also what should I do to shut off my lost iPhone 8 even it was password protected?

Yes, you can use any other phone with your same number. Go to an ATT store for a replacement SIM card. You should log into your account and suspend service until you can get the replacement SIM card. You should also log into your iCloud account and put the iPhone 8 into lost mode. You can also report the phone as lost to ATT. They will put it on the blacklist so it won’t work on any carrier.
