If you lose your iPhone 6 can somebody still use it

If you lose your iPhone and report it lost can that person still use the phone but change it to their SIM card even. Would the phone still be valid or once I report it that's it it can't be used for no reason not even with another company

If the SIM is changed (which was a proposition in the question), I am not sure if the phone can be wiped.
If they change the SIM card AND reset to break / reset the passcode, then yes they can use it.
Agreed.

I want to reiterate that if you have find my iPhone turned on, your iPhone won't be useful except for parts.

Not only is that amazing, it's been the case for over a year. Best deterrent to crime ever.
I believe there is sufficient information here to resolve this.
