Iphone selling issues

If I bought an iphone, and the actual phone was paid off, but the person who sold me the phone was still in contract with AT&T and stopped paying their bill, is the iphone locked from use on any network including AT&T till the person pays off their contract?

No, the phone will continue to work on ATT but won’t be unlocked to use on another carrier until the contract is completed and bill paid.
