Will the Motorola V710 work in Europe?

I currently have a Nokia 3589i for my VZ Wireless service which I am told
will not work in Europe. I'm thinking of the Moto V710 (because it has
Bluetooth capabilities). Does it operate on whatever bands are necessary
for it wo work in Europe (France, Germany specifically)?

Correct.

ALL domestic Verizon phones use an entirely different signalling
technology (CDMA) compared to what is used in Europe (GSM).

Verizon makes only one world phone that is a CDMA and GSM device. But
for world travel, I'd recommend you purchase an unlocked GSM phone so
you can purchase a sim card in Europe for inexpensive local rates.
