I followed the directions on Doc Martins facebook page and it was very straight forward. The only thing that stumped me for a while was trying to put in the date that I arrived in the country. The calendar wont change while the page is in English you need to switch it back into Turkish mode to do that.
Not exactly sure what I paid but 170 sounds about right. Was definitely less that 200tl.

I have just tried registration of my mobile but cannot get into edevlet through my bank . Did you registered it to your passport or your ikamet. Can you buy a sim after it's registered with any one? Is it easier to pay the tax before .'or on the edevelet site?

Re: UK Mobile registering in Turkey

In June I registered a new phone brought from UK, to use with my Turkish sim as my cheap Turkish phone was nearly dead. It was quite easy.

1. Took phone, ikamet and passport to the tax office and paid 170TL.
First check was date of entry, because if you have been in TC for more than 120 days you cannot register. Entry was OK.
2. Next query was the IMEI number. Smart phones have more than one and some have up to 4. Mine has 2 and giving both to the tax office caused confusion.
TIP just give one number at the tax office. (There's a chance to give others later.)
3. Next, down to PTT for online registration password. Paid 2TL and got a text.
4. Now the difficult bit. . . Go online and find the form using your PTT password.Work your way through the form, which I couldn't do alone, so asked a friend.
The form has space for several IMEI numbers and these were duly entered.
Waited a few moments, success! Am now legal.

Did you have to register it onto a passport or ikamet. I will have to give it a go .

I registered mine to my passport. I believe thats compulsory. I found trying to pay the tax onlıne confusıng so went to the tax office and there it was very simple. Went home and did it immediately and it opened immediately. If you do it like that you can use it for different networks afterwards yes. When you open the edevlet site it should give you different bank options if you've used internet banking before.

There's a record made of your documents, nothing entered on the passport.It's added to the other info they hold about you from your RP applications.

Re: UK Mobile registering in Turkey

Hi just one question . I have no sim and they are asking for a number to get in touch to carry on with the form filling, will my other phone No do, until i get a new sim card .

Re: UK Mobile registering in Turkey

The whole point of this registration is to permit a foreign phone to use a Turkish sim. If you dont have a Turkish sim registration is irrelevant.
You will need the passport number.
