Using unlocked VM Moto G3 overseas with foreign SIM.

I just replaced my VM Moto G3 with a new Moto G6 Play. Both great phones for the money and I needed an upgrade. 

I contacted VM and requested my old phone, the G3 be unlocked and they advised they did so. I travel a lot and it's still a good phone, so I figured I would use the unlocked G3 when I am in Asia (Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand) with a local SIM installed. 

My question is this: Has anyone on this support forum used their unlocked Moto's overseas in this fashion and were they able to without issues? 

Also, how do I check to make sure the old phone was unlocked? I don't have another micro SIM to put in it from another carrier to check. Is there another way?

Thanks in advance.
