It sounds to me like there's something missing from this story. If your service is suspended for non-payment, that is not the same as being cancelled.
Also because of the way carriers bill, during the bill cycle, it is likely you will owe a bill even after you terminate service and go to another carrier.
And if you were still a customer, but not keeping up with your bill, you would owe for service up to the point AT&T terminated your account, you would also owe for any equipment that you still own
