Thanks IbrahimAbi, that makes sense.
The Garanti site, although not allowing me to top up, does seem fairly logical and straightforward in its inability to help.
This was in contrast to the Turkcell site which is totally illogical, irrational, full of irrelevant pop ups promoting Huwawei phones, unnecessary insistence on one-time passwords delivered to the VINN you are trying to top up, and then, having jumped through all the hoops, transferred the money, got a receipt from Turkcell, got a confirmation text from the bank, the Turkcell website sends a message announcing you can't use the payment for that product!

I have enormous respect for you and your missus in managing to successfully top-up using this abomination!

Re: Vinn top up

When we did it they sent the password to my mobile phone, not the VINN, it was pretty straightforward.

Yes they are linked ,that's how I used to check what data I had on the vinn by putting the vinn SIM card in my mobile and sending to a Tex Num.And back would come the data used.

Re: Vinn top up

Thanks Evo and IbrahimAbi, I'll give it another try tomorrow. In the meantime, I phoned the 532 help line, and the chap I spoke to suggested I download Turkcell's "Digital Operator" to my phone, as he thought this could load money to my VINN. Anyway, another possibility.

Re: Vinn top up

Victory! Finally, using turkcell.com, I installed Lifecell 15 GB on VINN.
In case anyone else needs it, here is the procedure:-
1) Find the package you want to load, and keep it on the screen
2) On menu top right select "Install Package".
3) When requested for GMS number ,enter your PHONE number.
4) Pass number will be sent as SMS to above phone. Enter it (within 1.5 minutes!)
5) Enter the number of your VINN (530 --- ----)
6) When requested for your name, email, and GMS number, this is the VINN number again.
7) Then follow the usual credit card procedure, they will verify with 3D
