Re: Turkish SIM card and UK Mobile Phone

I have Turkish Sim that i brought back to England, I brought units to top up every 3 months which i have done so. My phone is on contract and while i was in Turkey last May i had a text asking if i wanted to use my Turkish Sim in other country's which i clicked yes. But the problem i've got is i've just changed my mobile. Will i have to use my Turkish Sim in my old phone or will i have to use it in my new one. Would be very grateful if anyone can help me.

the sim will only be registered to the IEM number of the your old phone
if you wish to use it in the new phone you will have to register the new phone as the IEM number is unique to each phone
that is what is registered .

Re: Turkish SIM card and UK Mobile Phone

Please forgive the following obtuseness!!

I am currently in the UK. I have a UK mobile which I registered in Turkey in Feb 08 and then re-registered in a Turkcell shop in July08. I have a Turkish number for my Turkish SIM which should still have plenty of Kontors on it.

I have just put my Turkish SIM into the phone to text a friend in Turkey hoping to keep my phone 'active'. I am getting 'Message Failed'.

Having read all of what has gone before and having been baffled by most of it I have a feeling that I should have registered to use my Turkcell account from the UK or something similar. I am going back to Turkey in Feb09 and just want to keep my phone account open and ready to use when I get there.

Can somebody please give me a very simple answer? In my own defence I should add that I still wonder where the dark goes when you switch on the light!

I am grateful for any help you can give.

Colin

Re: Turkish SIM card and UK Mobile Phone

I think that depends on what roaming charges you have set up.

Some UK networks have International options

To call Turkey from uk to turkey= international traveller service (ITS)0.40,
text costs 12p
discount country bolt on 28p/min,From Turkey to UK with ITS 80p (1.37 without Its) to receive 51p, text to uk is out of allowance.

Don't think you'd pay to receive a text in U.K, check with your UK service provider.

i think you will find the phone is not blocked after 3 months but 6 you can still receive calls but not make them the important issue is you dont lose your sim card till the 6 months is up

Does this help?

Mobile Phone Messaging - Text and Picture Messages - Vodafone
