    Ive just realised that the name I used to register my mobile phone was registered incorrectly through some clerical error. The only details they have are my address and bank account. I no longer live at the address registered and the current occupants are receiving letters due to my getting behind with payments (massive and unexpected financial pressures). Does the fact that the account is theoretically registered to someone other than me mean that I cannot be taken to court?

    Also can the current occupants avoid any disputes with the law by stating that the account holder no longer lives at the address.

    This is fraud, the longer you avoid this the more trouble you can get into if I was you I would immediately go to the advice bureau and ask about this as they deal with debt and find ways for you to pay it off over an extended period of time. When you first received your phone the letter stated the incorrect name, so you can't plead ignorance. If the company wanted to they could track this back to you through your bank.
