New SIM card

I have a mobile phone which I bought in Turkey in 2011 and which has served me well. For a variety of reasons, I haven't used it for some time and when I switched it on today, it came up with the following message - SIM card registration failed.

I fly to Bodrum tomorrow and was wondering if I would be able to buy a new SIM card without having to go through all the palaver (and expense) of registration and paying tax?

Yep all will be OK. As you've said you've not used it for some time....it's expired that's all. As the phone was bought in Turkey there's no worries about that being blocked. Just buy yourself a new simcard, same network as before unless the phone is unlocked to all networks, and pop it in. Safe journey and have a good time

Re: New SIM card

Yes, this happened to my friend when she came back recently for a holiday. The first time we went to Turkcell to buy the new card she'd forgotten her passport but when we went back with it we were given a selection of numbers to choose from and it took 5 mins max for the rest of it. Put the card in and away, no probs!
