Ask your dad if he informed all his contacts of his new PIN. If he did then there should be no issues.

I don't beleive they will be able to 'see' you, since your BBM has to send that data to the contacts you allow. BBM doesn't use a server in the same way MS Live, GTalk or ICQ do. BBM uses PIN to PIN messaging. The biggest problem you may have is people sending PINs to you thinking they're going to your dad, or trying to send BBM messages to you, again thinking they're going to your dad.
