How to sell Nikia Lumia 1020 on eBay?

I bought a new phone at an ATT store and they wiped my old phone. I went through the unlock process on the ATT web site and it was approved (see below). I'm stuck at instruction "3", insert a non-ATT SIM card. Never did this before. How do I reconcile these instuctions with putting the phone up for sale on eBay as "unlocked"? Thanks in Advance.

Go to the phone dial screen and enter "##7820#", and it should take you to the unlock screen, no other SIM required.
