Welcome to the MacNN Forums!
If your iPad said AT&T before, and now it says "No Service," then its cellular network settings may be incorrect. "Oopses" happen with iOS upgrades, and that is what this sounds like.
Go to Settings | General | About and scroll down to "Carrier." If it doesn't say AT&T, and/or if it doesn't give a ICCID (SIM ID code) there's a problem.
