UK phone Turkish sim

Hello. If I take out a contract in UK for mobile can I use a Turkish sim in the phone when in Turkey?

Re: UK phone Turkish sim

You can use a turkish sim in a non registered UK phone for a limited amount of time, I think it's about 28 days then the sim gets blocked.

Does anyone know if this is accumulative, or would it be reset if, say, you are here for 14 days and then leave, and come back for more each year?

If you taking out a UK contract suggest you take a look at Vodafone since their call plans include Turkey as part of EU roaming deal
what it means is when you are in Turkey all local calls to both landline and mobile are free the same as if you were in the UK
calls from Turkey back to the UK are also free

Re: UK phone Turkish sim

The Turkish sim would be from a Turkish registered phone. Will check with vodaphone for package.

Here a link for the simo deals some of them are discounted until the end of January

http://www.vodafone.co.uk/shop/bundl...eals/index.htm

Its worth signing up through one of the cashback sites as you can get up to 50
back bringing the monthly total down to 14-15 for 8GB or 20GB 4G data

O2,BT EE charge a 5 daily rate for Use in Turkey even for 1 text or 30 seconds of internet access

Re: UK phone Turkish sim

Your UK Phone will not be blocked as long as you go and pay the tax at the tax office...You get 120days to pay...if you go over the 120 days you can not get it unblocked... The tax on my Samsung S7 was 150tl..

All UK phones must be unlocked in order to take a Turkish Sim..

As said above...if you have a vodaphone contract in the UK you can get a package that includes internet and free calls in Turkey..
