Registering a mobile phone in Turkey

How often can you register a mobile phone in Turkey- know it used to be one a year but think I heard somewhere that changed to 1 every 2 years- anyone know for definite?

Re: Registering a mobile

I just checked online, it says once every two years. http://www.mcks.gov.tr/

But the only way to get a concrete answer is to go to one of the vendors shops.

Queried with major Turkcell shop in Milas, lasy year, their reply was that you can only register 1 mobile per two years, and must have passport and be completed within 30 days of Visa stamp

thats correct,sandyhelen ..the only way around it is to buy a 2nd hand phone from a turkish person thats registered we have 4 phones, 2 each .i only just bought a blackberry for 45 Tl, 4 weeks ago and it was already registered,i just change the sim cards over, .ok its 4 years old but does the job..

The restriction doesn't apply to new phones purchased inside Turkey.
