Buying a second hand 'contract' mobile

Posted 19th Apr 2011
Hi there
Im buying a mobile from someone who had it on contract but im worried about this as to what would happen if they dont continue with their contract payments etc
i have googled it etc and it appears that mobile providers cannot bar a mobile via IMEI due to non payment, only if its stolen or lost etc
is this true, if so then i would be happy to buy it, just a little worried that a few months down the road they may have stopped paying and defaulted etc and may therefore make my mobile un-usable

any help appreciated
