I would yes depending on the circumstances. IF it was sold and payment was not received/revoked I could see it being possible. But if it was clean and there is proof of purchase/receipt of payment then no.

Best guess.

Eh... possible. I would imagine that since it was allowed to be registered you should be fine. I would call att like I said and ask them specifically.

You really should listen to that inner voice next time, because you seem hesitant now, and you were probably then. It may all be just fine, but next time, remember Swappa, Amazon or eBay.
Good luck
