I am taking my iPhone 5 from Canada to US for a week. I have a pre-paid SIM card from AT&T that a friend loaned me. He bought it while on a recent trip to Vegas It has unlimited data/texts/local local calls for 30 days (approx 14 left).
I have a couple questions:
Those are the only questions I can think of. There may be more, but in the meantime thank you for any input!

OK,I am not a iPhone person,but I think Android are kind of the same.
As long as you put the correct APN in , everything should work.
I am not sure unlimited local are only calls in Vegas.Because most AT&T package in US local call do mean all calls in USA. (You can call from LA to New york as a local call) Not like good old Canada local call mean where your number base in.Calgary number got local call in Calgary,even you call up to Red Deer,it is a long distance in Canada.
Texts on your package should be inc. free texts to Canada.

yes adidaskid808 is right , you can use the unlimited as long as you're in the U.S with a ATT tower nearby.
Im just a little bit worried about your sim card that has an unlimited data/call/text
are you talking about the $35 monthly plan? If so the unlimited data cant be used on the Iphone. Wifi is the only option. The unlimited data for this plan is for non-smartphones only.
Yes you can send iMessages internationally providing you have the data connection. no extra charges

I bought a SIM card at JFK, everything unlimited (Android), plan is 60$ per month, I paid a total of 114 (more or less). I used it to access the Internet. Last I heard, my balance was zero (after 2 weeks of heavy use).
