So your sim stays live for 270 days and your credit only last 90 days?

Re: Mobile WIFI

The sim will last for 270 days either in a Vinn device or phone. The credit on the phone seems to last the same length of time.
On a Vinn you buy data, with Turkcell you buy the data for 1 or 3 months so the sim will last 270 days but the data only lasts for the length of time you bought it for, either 1 or 3 months.

That is what I said. Buy 1 month or buy 3 months. You can buy 4 gig for 1 month or 4 gig for 3 months. But obviously if you have the 3 month option and go loopy on it it won't last for 3 months.its all according how long you are there for.

Re: Mobile WIFI

I have a Turkcell VINN WiFi device. Works very well but I don't know how to check if it still has unused gigabytes and is still in credit.
The unit just stops when I run out of gigabytes.

I could look at the Local Area Connection properties part of the network 'download/upload' section of my computer network but its difficult to understand and interpret and it resets itself on each shutdown.

Is there a part of the Turkcell website that displays data used and data available for a specific VINN number?

Hi Kevin.

Here is a link to the Turkcell web page where you can check how much data you still have left to use.

TURKCELL

When the web page opens, click on the down arrow at the side of 'Giriş' at the top right corner of the screen.

In the box which says 'GSM Numeraniz', key in the 10 digit phone number (starting with 5...) for the data sim card which is in your VINN Wifi device.

In the box which says 'Turkcell Şıfreniz', key in the password for the data sim card. The way I got an initial password was to take the sim card out of the VINN Wifi device, then put the sim card in a standard Turkish mobile phone. I then sent a text message with the message 'SIFRE' to 2222, then I got a text message back with my new password. You can change the password when you get into the system. There might be another way of getting an initial password, but this method worked for me. (note- when you put the data sim card into the mobile phone, you might be asked for a 4 digit pin code. This is the pin code which would have been written on the plastic card which came with the data sim card).

Once you put the phone number and the initial password into the box on the website, click on the 'GIRIŞ YAP' button, then it will take you to your account. Unfortunately the website is mainly in Turkish, but click on some of the buttons and you will get a gist of what information is there.

All the best. Good luck.


John

Re: Mobile WIFI

Hi

I am not very technical. I have a portable vinn wifi in an apartment I rent out. The card has gone missing and they need to get more credit, would the number be on the sim card to purchase credit.

Re: Mobile WIFI

If the card has gone missing (lost/stolen) then there is no point topping up that SIMs number, (not that the unit will work because there is no SIM in it)

You will need to buy another SIM for the unit.

The number is usually on the outer part of the large card when you buy one, for security reasons not on the actual SIM.

************

If this (very useful) thread is being revitalised, is there any chance anyone can post some up-to-date prices on the cost of vin type units and also the cost of topping up date per MB.

Thanks.

Do you mean the card with the phone number, 05xxxxxxxxx, has gone missing but you still have the device with the SIM card?

If you do then take the unit incl; the SIM card to the providers shop, Turkcell etc and they will be able to interrogate the SIM card and get the number off it to ensure the top up can be completed.

In that case, then yes the shop will soon be able to tell you the number.
