    I used my sister's upgrade so my data plan remained unchanged. Do I need to go by AT&T and get them to change my data plan to iPhone 4s to see faster hspa+ speeds or is having the newer hardware enough?

    You will have to call them and provide your new IMEI number.

    Nothing needs to be done. The baseband will auto-negotiate the higher speed if available in your area.

    correct

    nothing needs to be done. i've actually asked attFail for new sim card after doing the same & the speeds were the same (4-6mb) vs 2mb on 4, same sim

    They are going to tell you to call. That's not the same as being required to. The system will eventually swap it over to the 4S data plan. I am not even sure why a different data plan for the 4S exists.

    I bought the 4S outright (no contract) and I had to get a whole new sim card. Not sure why... but they also changed my plan while they were there.

    I would call them.
    You will see better speeds with the 4S data plan.
