Re: registering a phone

Hi,

Turkish SIM card will not work in Uk and the Phone has to be SIM unlocked, so that you can insert another UK SIM when you are in UK, bit swap over when you visit Turkey.

I found it also difficult to "top-up" the Turkish Card when in UK.

The only other option is to have an international SIM card which are more expensive. I personally keep two phones, one for Turkey and one for UK.

Basic phones are so cheap now and that is a better option, unless you want all the mod.cons on it like What's App, Games, Web Browser etc., then you the phone would be more expensive.

I hope this helps.

I can use my Turkish SIM card (Turkcell) here in UK. Just have to ensure that you have roam enabled. To top up I go through my Turkish bank online.

Turkish sim card does work in the UK, just make sure roaming is on. But i think he was asking if THE phone works back in the
UK with a UK sim....and the answer is....yes it does as long as the phone is unlocked to all networks.
