Hey Irish Rose,
I also have an unlocked iPhone 4s and a pre=paid AT &T sim. In order for me to get the data working, I have to plug in the APN carrier settings. Another forum somewhere had pointed me towards unlockit.co.nz/mobilesettings/ World Wide Mobile Phone Settings
There you can find many different carriers. If you visit www unlockit.co.nz (Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone) from your iPhone it will do an automatic setup.
I now switch between Rogers (my main carrier) to AT & T when I need to.
Just as a heads up - also when installing the SIM, make sure to give it a full minute or two for the SIM to register. I've freaked out a couple of times when the phone keeps "searching" for the carrier thinking the SIM isn't taking, but eventually it finds the carrier.
Congrats on the new unlocked iPhone!
(Sorry for the non-direct links, forum won't let me post full URLs just yet.)

I chose to buy unlocked Rogers because they wanted to charge me $350 early upgrade fee on top of the cost of the new hardware upgrade and yet another activation fee. This would be close to $800 including tax, so Apple's unlocked iPhone 4S was easily a better option for close to the same amount.
I don't know about the plans with iPad - but I would think it works the same way.

I've been using the Viber app for free texting internationally with people while travelling - and I know that operates on data. I assume that iMessage will work between iOS devices on wi-fi *and* 3G networks. apple.com/ios/features.html#imessage

I ended up sending the 32GB factory unlocked iPhone 4S back to Apple and using the app store app to reserve the 64GB factory unlocked 4S, which I picked up the next day in NJ. I have had it for three weeks and it works great. I only used it with my prepaid T-Mobile SIM for one day to make sure it works. Everything worked except MMS as mentioned. However, everything with my postpaid AT&T SIM works great, there was no need to change any settings. It's nice to have another unlocked iPhone again that works with both of my GSM providers.
