Buying a used AT&T Cell phone, is it safe?

My question is, if I buy a used cell phone that is locked to AT&T, will it become blacklisted if the original owner of the phone stops paying their AT&T bills?

I have purchased used ATT phones off eBay.   eBay guarantees your purchase.   Please be careful where you buy a used phone.

I've sold 5 phones on Craig's list (as recent as last Friday), so I can say yes, it is safe........sometimes. Not everyone is as honest as me Smiley Happy


You're right. If the seller bought it on NEXT or a 2 year contract and stops paying, ATT can black list the phone for fraud, locked or not.
