Samsung E1170 review
Light on features but big on value, the Samsung E1170 isn't likely to divert sales away from the big hitters. It does, however, offer an attractive package for novice mobile users who aren't concerned with accessing the Internet or exchanging photos.
alaTest has collected and analysed 229 reviews from magazines and websites. Reviewers really like the responsiveness and design. The battery and usability also get good ratings, but many are negative about the build quality and features.

I bought a Samsung GT-E1170 GSM Dual Band "handy" in Germany; will it work in France or Spain if I install French or Spanish SIM cards?

We do not see any issues with this working within Europe, providing your network provider supports the handset.
