Turkish SIM Card in UK Mobile Phone

Sorry if this has been asked many times before, but I have an unblocked UK mobile phone and I would like to buy a Turkish pay as you go SIM to use in this phone without having to fully register it etc with Turkcell. Does anyone know if this phone could be used for 2 weeks whilst on holiday before being blocked? I don't care if the phone eventually gets blocked as I just need a phone for a couple of weeks to make local calls & texts.
Thanks

I am almost 100% sure it won't get blocked in just 2 weeks holiday.

Yup, that is what the law says. However, beware what the law says.
Good luck, you may need it.

Re: Turkish SIM Card

Whilst still on the subject of SIM cards and as a update to costs etc.

1, How much do SIM cards cost nowadays.

2, Roughly how much do calls cost per minute to use a Turkish SIM to phone either a UK landline or UK mobile?

Re: Turkish SIM Card

Thanks, although that seems a lot just for a SIM, but then again it's Turkey.

When you say 'a cheap mobile' again what sort of proce are we talking for something very basic just to send or receive a call?

From the UK calling a Turkish Mobile or Turkish land line the Lebara Best Tariff rate is 1p per minute landline or 5p per minute mobile
as you can pick up basic nokia 105,106,108 phones from Carphone warehouse for 1P cheapest option is send them a txt on your Turkish mobile and they phone you back on the Lebara sim card
