Re: I'd like to bring a phone for my daughter from Hongkong

The same phone is available here in Turkey:

Teknosa Al─▒┼Ÿveri┼Ÿ Sitesi - Herkes ─░├žin Teknoloji

There may be a problem with bringing this as a gift. While personal imports of phones is allowed, I think it has to be imported/used by the person living here. Part of the registration of a "foreign" phone is linked to the passport holder. Not sure about this, but check before you buy. Unless there is a significant cost saving it might be easier to buy here.

There is also a Tax payable now for registering an imported phone.

Read the thread on here named SIM CARD.It will answer your questions.You can bring a phone in & give it to a friend,but for it to be registered in their name they must have an entry stamp in their passport within the last 30 days.If you register it on her behalf in your name then amongst all the other paperwork you will have to have a new sim card,which means a new phone number.
