Question How can I purchase Dongle Internet in Turkey?

I want to have internet in turkey and think Dongle would be best option. My friend says i cant have dongle internet. He says only someone who has phone line internet can get dongle internet. I find this hard to believe. Cant i just walk into any internet provider shop like Turkcell, buy a pay as you go dongle? I know things are different in Turkey but surely I dont have to have phone line to have internet. Im only in Turkey for approx 12 weeks. Dont mind having to pay monthly if PAYG not available. Im flying to Alanya on Monday so any help anyone can give me would be gratefully received. At the moment i go to ALANYUUM to use free internet

Re: How can I purchase Dongle Internet in Turkey?

Lou I think your friend is getting mixed up with the offer that Turk Telekom have on at the moment where you can get a dongle for a cheap monthly fee as well as your internet line. You can pick up a dongle from Vodaphone or Turkcell shops in the Centre of Alanya. They work on exactly the same principle as the ones you purchase in UK, but are more expensive to buy initially. Good luck with your surfing.

You do not need a phone line to have a dongle--just go to turkcell or your choice of provider and buy one --you need to take your passport with you and it is monthly pay as you go

Anyone can have a dongle as long as you take in your passport.
But whats it got to do with planes trains and automobiles.

I thought that at first, but with a dongle you can use it in a plane, train or car. Theoretically speaking.

Re: How can I purchase Dongle Internet in Turkey?

have been told that you should buy an O2 dongle in the U.K. (because they are much cheaper here) then take it to the turkcell shop in Turkey and they sort it for you for pay as you go. I don't know much about this but I am sure someone will know if this is true or not

Re: How can I purchase Dongle Internet in Turkey?

Lou your friend is wrong. An idiot and a liar. Theyre no friend at all for giving you such rubbish information-indeed they obviously dislike you. Dump this so called friend and never contact them or mention their name again. Such evil people dont deserve friends. Put a potatoe over their exhaust pipe and dog muck through their letter box. Friend indeed-theyre pure evil.
