Import rules for UK mobile phones

Is anyone able to help me?
My friend, has a residency permit. She bought her iphone in the UK and imported it into Turkey, it was registered with the correct authorities and she paid tax on it. Unfortunately she was burgled and her phone was taken. She has all the paperwork from the police pertaining to the items stolen . She would like to know if she brings another iphone in from the UK, (less than 2 years after registering the one that was stolen), will she have to register and pay tax again on this replacement?

Re: Import rules for UK mobile phones

I would have thought yes if the burglary was in Turkey but the first question is will she be able to register another phone as it is less than 2 years. Presume cannot ask at a shop which deals with registration as not in Turkey at moment and knows nobody there who can ask on her behalf; hopefully a good TLF samaritan will come along. I would but not in Turkey at moment.

Re: Import rules for UK mobile phones

I concur with Chinooks reply,the tax office will take anyones money,but it's down to the service provider whether they will let them register another phone so soon,even with the polis report.

Re: Import rules for UK mobile phones

I'm sure as everything else in Turkey it will vary from place to place, shop to shop but in Bodrum Turkcell, after the new ruling was brought in about the tax to be paid for bringing in the phone you were not allowed to register another phone within the 2 year period no matter what happened to your old one. They will take your money for the 'new' registering, so will the tax man for the import but then around 6-8 weeks (maybe a bit longer) you will find your phone switched off and this will be because the Gov dept in Ankara that deals with this has got all your paperwork and realised that you have had more than the 1 phone brought into the country within 2 years, happened to me! No come back, no money back and no phone, had to buy one here in the end.

Re: Import rules for UK mobile phones

My mrs last year bought a uk iphone, did the registration bit, phone broke , got a replacement from uk under guarantee, got that registered free of charge.
Speak to your local turkcell shop if that's who your contract was with they should sort it for you.
funnily enough it broke again, software problems, so she has changed again to Samsung, much better all round.
