Am I liable for the use of my phone after company dissolved?

This answer was rated:

Am I liable for the use of my phone after company dissolved? IE if company was dissolved in July and and bills were not paid, but then I continued to use the phone am I liable for it or only partly liable, since previous charges accrued when the company was still active?

Also, if I dissolved the company but then transferred ownership of the lines/devices to another company that was still trading, but forgot to notify the mobile phone operator, who is liable? Me personally or the company I changed ownership of the phone contract with?
