    As long as you are within the 30 grace-period, you can modify the terms of your contract without penalty. That includes the phone and plan details.

    Yes you can exchange your iPhone 3GS at AT&T. Within the initial 30 period you are allowed to make one phone exchange. You are not making any changes to your contract or terms, it is just an called an equipment exchange.

    Yes you will have to pay the price difference between the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4.

    If he was the one who signed the contract, then yes.

    you will also have to pay a restocking fee at AT&T.

    A $35 restocking fee applies to all devices purchased at an AT&T-owned retail store, except where prohibited.
    A $35 restocking fee applies to all netbook/notebook purchases, except where prohibited.
    A 10% restocking fee applies to all tablet purchases, except where prohibited.
    A 10% restocking fee applies to all iPhone and iPad purchases, except where prohibited. The 10% restocking fee does not apply if the device is returned unopened.

    No, this is not the only way. :eek:

    Are you older than 18?

    Your father could add you as an authorized retail user. You would need to know the last 4 digits of his SSN and any PIN number on the account (if he has set this additional security feature).

    He can do this by going into any AT&T Corporate retail location or updating the account information using the web interface to Online Account Management ( OLAM ).

    You will also need to present a photo id.
