They are telling you porkies, if you are not using you orange sim then they cant charge you and if they do add costs then report them.

Re: How much to register a mobile

Yes old fogey its around that price.

Until very recently I was going to buy a phone in the uk and have it registered here. but rumours scared me enough to just buy a Turkish one here and pay the extra.

I did not want to spend a lot of money on a phone that turned out to be useless here.
Rumours are that they are stopping registering uk phones, I have actually heard of a friends daughters already registered phone being cut. they say its to do with the recent riots and outsiders using mobile to communicate with, but again just rumours.

Incedently I bought my phone through an online company in Istanbul , it was 150 tl cheaper than Tecknosa/ Bimeks/ Electroworld was ordered late afternoon and arrived mid morning the next day in Fethiye had come aircargo. I was impressed.!

We had to buy our Sim separately for our Turkish mobile, and there was quite a big difference in price from shop to shop for the same thing. Maybe when you bought your phone the shop automatically gave a Sim card and charged you for both without you realizing it. Sue xx

Re: How much to register a mobile in Turkey?

Being about to register a new mobile in Turkey I'd be interested in knowing 'the process'. I know you pay the required fee at the tax office but do you first go to the network shop you intend to use? Having done my residency last year I'm aware that in that process you took 'a piece of paper' to hand in and duly pay the fee so is it the same for a mobile? All experiences gratefully received.

Same, bought mine from main Turkcell shop in Nevşehir for 60 TL total including SIM card, in October 2008. That little Nokia 1110 is still going strong after having been dropped down a well (and retrieved and dried out) and having been walked on by a donkey! They don't make them like that any more...

You can only register an imported phone within 30 days of entering Turkey,you have to show your passport with a recent entry stamp.Then you go to the Tax office,pay 135tl & take receipt,passport & phone to a service supplier & buy a sim card pack.You can only register one phone every 2 years.
