I had an iPhone stolen and I reported it to AT&T, I am assuming this means the SIM has been disabled. If someone finds it, will they be able to put in a new SIM, if they have AT&T and will I be notified or will they be stopped from activating? I'm not sure if AT&T can do anything about preventing future use of my phone. I don't mind, as long as it isn't on my line.

People have been complaining about AT&T not blacklisting IMEIs for years, especially after the first iPhone was released over 4 years ago and they became hot targets for theft. Today's climate isn't much different than it has been in the past few years, so it seems unlikely that there is a sudden change coming. Unless the federal government passes a law requiring cell phone companies to blacklist IMEIs (like in many foreign countries), it seems a unlike that AT&T will suddenly see the light and do it on their own.
Blacklisting in Europe does nothing, it only prevents the phone from being used in the country it was black listed in, the phone can be shipped or sold out of country and activated with no problem

Well I signed a contract with att got five phones left them in a car the next day gone! My phones better be on blacklist... Att sold me insurance that was junk they were buy one get one free! Nope I have to pay for them all! And att won't do anything thing for me... I am very. Unsatisfied with AT&T they suck... Checking on sprint soon!!! : )
No, you purchased 5 phones (no contract).
Did you insure all 5? Did they not cover your phones? (Why is it junk?)
I'm not even going to ask "why would you leave 5 new phones in your car?"...
How is this AT&T's fault? They didn't leave them in your car. Nor did they take them...
