You have a few options:
1) Talk to an AT&T representative by calling 611 from your mobile phone OR visiting a local AT&T store. Based on how much you've payed thus far in terms of your monthly bills, you may be upgraded for "free". This is because sometimes AT&T will see that you're a loyal and paying customer. For example, my best friends iPhone bill was roughly $100 a month when he got his 3GS on the launch day. After announcement of the iPhone 4, he asked AT&T for a free upgrade. They gave it to him. "Ask and you shall receive."
2) If you're on a family plan, see who IS eligible for upgrade and kindly ask them if you can use it for the coolest phone in the world. ;-) AT&T is very nice about using others eligible lines for your iPhone...and the process is simple!
3) You can have someone take over your AT&T phone and bill, then sign up for Verizon.
