    I want to do an iOS restore, and then set it up as a new device. Would I lose the 3G data plan that I paid for already? Please advise.

    No. Restoring your iPad does not do anything with the sim which your data plan is tied to.

    What about restoring to a new device??

    You're restoring the iPad, not the sim card. The data plan follows the sim card so you will still have your data plan.

    Yup I've replaced my iPad a couple of times, just keep your sim. You can even replace sim if it's lost and keep unlimited , just know the phone number your iPad 3G account is associated with...

    In other words, if your forced to replace the sim card even then you can keep your unlimited . I believe only circumstances to lose it include changing plan and billing issues.
