BLU Cellphone use in Europe

The box for my unlocked BLU Advance 4.0L (A010U model) smartphone says it has GSM 850/900/1800/1900 frequencies, and therefore should work in Europe. Firstly, can anyone confirm that the manufacturing information is correct? Secondly, can anyone tell me, in general terms, if European service providers are continuing their 900/1800 mhz cover, or abandoning these in favour of other frequencies offering 3 and 4G service?
All i need when travelling in Europe - using a local SIM card - is basic voice service + text, not data. Should my BLU phone work and be adequate for this purpose? Many thanks. All information gratefully received.
