There are no "talk-only" plans in this country. All options for voice, include texts (SMS) and data too. Of course you can simply switch off data usage on your device. That still doesn't prevent your cell phone from jumping on a foreign network in border areas. And the roaming charges in Switzerland can be high for voice too.

I'm have to say that your new BLU Advance 4.0 may be unsuitable for data use in Europe: HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 1700 - A270A, HSDPA 850 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 - A010U, HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 - A010L. So only the model A010L has 2100 MHz which you are going to need in Germany (or Europe) for 3G. Otherwise you will only get 2G data up to EDGE speed. But for voice and text (SMS) all models are fine as they all have 1800 MHz 2G.
