Using Turkcell Vinn Wifi

I have bought a Turkcell Vinn mobile modem and loaded it with 10 gigs of data which can be used for up to 3 months. The problem is I can't work out how to check my data usage. If I connect the Vinn to my laptop it links me to a Turkcell page which asks for a password, but I've no idea what this might be. I've tried going direct to the Turkcell website, but I can't work out how to register as a customer. Any help would be appreciated!

What I do is I put the Vinn sim in my turkish mob phone and enter the word kalan and send to 222 . You then get a tex msg back with what is left on your usage .

Re: Using Turkcell Vinn Wifi

Do you still have the card that the SIM card came with ? The password you need is on the back of the card. If you can access the Turkcell page that pops up when you connect the Vinn, you can go to statistics and request a msg be sent from Turkcell giving your remaining quota.

Also, if you can log in to the popup page and receive messages, you can access Turkcell's website (you request a sifre/password). On the website you can view your data usage and also buy top ups.

evo80's solution is good, too.

Re: Using Turkcell Vinn Wifi

Hi Sailorgirl and welcome to the forum, now if I remember right, to access the info you need re the data used and settings etc. In your browser window Type 192.168.1.1 in your browser window (whilst your mifi is switched on) this will take you to the login screen type admin and password admin choose English.

Pete

Re: Using Turkcell Vinn Wifi

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.

Re: Using Turkcell Vinn Wifi

The video below is instructions showing how to connect and set up your Vinn wifi (the video shows a 3 branded modem but its the same a Turkcell) Get past opening of the box etc. No need for texts or removing the sim.

Re: Using Turkcell Vinn Wifi

Thank you so much everyone for your advice. For some reason when I put 192.168.1.1 in no page comes up, so it looks as though I will have to find someone who can lend me a Turkish mobile phone.

I have had the mifi for a couple of years and recently told a friend to do exactly the above which always worked for me. I met him on the promenade last week and he told me he was very happy with it but he found by trial and error that he had to type 192.168.0.1 and then it worked but either way if you get to point where it is asking for the username and password it is admin and admin NOT the wifi password.
