SIM's from carriers that use T-mobile's network cannot be used with an AT&T GoPhone without unlocking the device. In addition, to get 3G/HSPA+ speeds on T-Mobile your phone needs to have both the 1700 and 2100 frequencies. T-Mobile MVNOs like Lyca/PTEL also use 1700/1900. The Lumia 520 GoPhone from AT&T does not have the 1700 Mhz frequency. AT&T uses the 850 and 1900 Mhz frequencies, the Lumia 521 has both, so AT&T 3G will work on the 521, if unlocked.
T-Mobile is adding support for 3G on the 1900 Mhz frequency as part of their LTE upgrades, which also uses 1700 Mhz. In those areas you should be able to get 3G, you can find a map here that shows locations where T-Mobile has refarmed the 1900 Mhz frequency to support 3G.
