Not really sure what you should do. Unless you can find a way to make both prepaid data and MMS messaging collaborate, you will need to make a decision which is more important to you - having MMS capabilities or the ability to have mobile 3G data.

Can you set up two different groups of data settings?  One with the appropriate APN for data access and one that allows MMS to function.  If so, can you create a menu shortcut that will allow you to more easily toggle back and forth between the two as your default settings based on your needs at the time?

 

(I'm not familiar with the iPhone at all.  But I did a variation of this on both of my SE phones to allow data access and to prevent unwanted data access.)

You would activate the iPhone 4/4S the same way as you would a regular phone, as far as I know. MicroSIMS may require a different process, though...I'm not completely sure because I have never activated an iPhone by itself before.

When you say the phone cannot detect the SIM card, does it say "No SIM"? Is the SIM card you have activated? It probably is not because, judging from your question, you have not yet found a way to activate it.
