If the phone is tied to a contract, not unless it's fully paid off. Need to read the full terms of this deal. I was able to get a new phone from my carrier for $30 but it required a 2 year contact extension.
 
It's also quite possible that the new phone is locked to (in your case) Telus, and won't work with any other SIM card. Usually, operators allow for phone to be unlocked after it's paid off, or after some time has passed.

The reverse could also be true - Telus SIM card might not work in your father' current S6.
