    If I pop that sim (AT&T unlimited data plan) into my new iPad, which has the 3 Gig plan, will i be able to connect to the LTE network?

    What you'll likely get is a nasty text message from AT&T shutting down your data plan until you call them.

    Correct. If I'm not mistaken you would need an LTE capable SIM card. You would also have to change the APN.

    I do know that you can definitely use an iPhone SIM in an iPad and use it for data, though. I've done it myself.

    I used a non-smartphone data plan with an iPhone for a couple of years. I had to change the APN settings in the phone to use the sim from my other phone. I would image that the APN settings are already set between the two though.
