If you purchased a phone from a third party and there is still a balance due, then only the original owner can pay it off, if that is what you mean by a contract. AT&T won't tell you how much is due or who the original owner is/was. There are no phone contracts with AT&T unless a phone is purchased on an installment plan. If the installment is not paid off, then AT&T will eventually blacklist the phone and it won't be able to be used on any network.
