Hi all

Brand new to this forum but did register and looked in a week or two ago.
We are in the mind set of wanting to buy in dalyan.

From a practical side where is best choices and deals in things like beds and settee items ?


What about use of a temporary internet sim ,pay as you go type .
I really only would be out for a few weeks at a time on holiday and own a MIFI. Open to air modem.
So really looking at good provider and top up .

What basics English tv programmes would anybody recomend ,just free to air type

Thanks in anticipation

Hi Dave and Bev, welcome to the forum.We don't live in Dalya so no info there, but regarding Tv, if you get yourself a vpn (there are free ones, but we are happy with ours at 85 $ per year) then you can watch and download from the BBC I player, or watch ITV for free.

No, we don't use it but friends who stay 3 months here, 3 months UK use it. It works for emails etc but is too slow (and expensive) for streaming tv. I wish you well. Please read all the threads on buying and not trusting 'nice people 'who are Emlaks and lawyers. Just because they speak good English does not mean that they are trustable. Do not pay until you have what you want!

Re: Hi all

Hi,

Remember you will have to register your MIFI if you put a Turkish SIM in it, otherwise it will be cut off after a week or two.

Turkcell do a pre pay SIM (Hazir Kart) valid for 3 months for 10Gb of data for 79tl. That will usually be fast enough to stream video, but 10Gb won't last long for that.

Re: Hi all

Good morning,

As in many things, Turkey is different in that you have to register any device with an imei number if you want to use a Turkish SIM. If you use the search facility on TLF to look for 'register a mobile' there are lots of threads on here. I think the process is now that you have to take your MIFI to the tax office and pay tax (115tl?) then take the proof to a main mobile shop, Turkcell Avea etc. pay a fee to them to register it and then buy your data SIM. Please note any hole in the wall phone shop will sell you a SIM, but only the main dealer can register your device. Not sure about Dalyan, but there are main dealers in Ortaca and Dalaman.

Good luck!

Bruce
