Call AT&T and press them to unlock your husband's 4S. If he's been a customer of theirs longer than six months, they should be willing to do it. If they say no, ask for customer retention and tell them flat out you're both going to change carriers at the end of his contract if they don't unlock his iPhone. They will charge a fee for it, but they'll probably agree to do it.

As for your question regarding changing sim cards, no data on the phone will be affected. The only thing stored on the AT&T sim card is the US phone number of the device.

I travel between the US and Canada all the time and use a carrier-unlocked iPhone 4. The policy in Canada is that you only have to be a customer of the carrier for 90 days to get the iPhone unlocked, and I believe several of the US carriers have much the same policy, so AT&T hasn't got a leg to stand on there.
