Using another At&t sim card on a locked, still in contract phone

If I put my At&t sim card into a At&t locked and still in contract phone, would it work? Would it tell me if the phone is unpaid etc.?

But if the owner stops paying the contract phone bill, then the phone would be unusable right?

Maybe, maybe not. That all depends on how much they owe on the phone and whether or not ATT blacklists it. In the past, ATT did not blacklist unpaid phones. They have only recently started doing that.
