Unlocking an iPhone modifies the device so it can be used with any SIM card. If inserting a SIM card into the device produces an "Insert SIM card with no PIN lock" error, the unlock was performed incorrectly. Re-insert the AT&T SIM into the iPhone if you don't want to void its warranty or your AT&T agreement.
