Re: UK phone Turkish sim

I gotta say way back I bought a cheap Turkish Nokia ( about 30 ) just for calls TeX while in Turkey .Now the cheapest new basic Turk mobile is about 90 .Some say not worth bringing UK mobile because of the gov mandatory tax to pay and registration .BUT if like most of us UK Yabancis and yuou have a spare unlocked UK mobile and just want to make / receive calls in Turkey ,then I say bring one out from UK rather than pay 90 for a cheap Turk one.I am still using the cheap Turkish bought one I got in Bodrum in 2007.

Re: UK phone Turkish sim

As others I use my UK Vodaphone contract when in Turkey
You can also use your data there too as part of you contract

Works perfect with better 4g reception than some areas in the UK

I am on Virgin so no good to me .I stay with Virgin as 0870/0845 and all 0800 free calls included in call allowance. I don't think any other mobile provider does this.

Virgin is good in Turkey as any calls that you receive are free

Re: UK phone Turkish sim

Just one thing to be aware of (and I didn't know this until Vodafone pointed it out to me), to stop people simply getting a UK contract and using it permanently abroad - where as others have said - all calls, text and data are same for international roaming as they are for UK... There is a 3 month limit - thus every three months you have to be back in the UK to reset the 3 month time limit.

Now, here's an interesting fact..... If you live near an international boarder (as I do), almost every time I go out I get a 'welcome to Greece' text and then a 'welcome to Turkey' one 10 mins later.... It resets the clock, thus I've found it has been no extra charge for several months now - boom!
