Re: turkcell messages

They are mostly junk messages making offers that are going to cost you. We just delete en masse.

Re: turkcell messages

About 18 months ago I had an SMS from Turkcell asking if I would like my messages in English, I was overjoyed and accepted…………..they still send messages in Turkish.

Re: turkcell messages

Is there anyway of unsubscribing from all this junk? sometimes the message comes at unsociable hours.

Re: turkcell messages

if it was anything important they would ring you so don't worry as Des says the majority are just junk

If you have registered a foreign mobile in Turkey they then have your identification against the SIM as they retain a copy of your Passport. I too received the message enquiring if I wanted texts in English but nothing has ever happened.

Re: turkcell messages

They have been saying you will get the messages in English if you request them for at least four years to my knowledge. All they have to do is add a single digit to identify the language requirement when you register the phone then it's easy for the computer to choose which language you want. But then as said it's mostly junk. İf İ was Vodaphone İ would offer the choice think they will clean up with the new european subscribers if they do.
