What was your upgrade. I assume you didn't get some special upgrade that would lessen the 6 per day they want to charge for using the Vodafone contract in Turkey.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

So have I got this right?

If I pay cash of 189TL I get the device and 6gb of data. When that is used up do I just pay for a top up and if so how much is it - another 189TL? Does it have to be used by a certain time.

As I'm only in Turkey during the summer months on a number of visits it doesn't seem to make sense to enter into a monthly contract.

Your thoughts please.

Yes you just pay to top up . Top up can be for 1 month or 3 months . You have to top up evry 270 days or the sim card will expire and then you will have to buy a new sim [ about 8 I think ] . So long as you top up every 270 days you will keep the same sim sim .That's what I do .I come in may and September ,so I have kept my sim since I bought mine about 5 years ago .Not sure how much it is now ,as I normally top up about 4 gigs.Its great for surfing and mobile calls over internet . BUT if you use it to download stuff or video voice calls ,it will eat data and you will soon have to top up again .I use it for e mail voice calls and surfing the net .

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

Looks like best time to buy is 2nd day of the month

15GB free until the 1st of next month

When can I start using it?
* Insert your internet cable into the device.
* Turn on your VINN WiFi.
* You may use 3G through wireless connection by connecting your laptop to ''VINN WiFi'' wireless network. You may also use 3G internet connection on your desktop through a usb device.
Once the special offer request is received, it will be activated on the first day of the next month.
Until your special offer is activated, you will be offered a 15GB connection as a welcome present.

Where do you get the figure of 189TL from when it's advertised at 74TL

EDIT:- think this is part of answer to my earlier question

24-Month Plans
15 GB INTERNET 74 TL/MONTH 24-MONTH PLANS 74 TL/MONTH 24-MONTH PLANS


12-Month Plans
15 GB INTERNET 84 TL/MONTH 12-MONTH PLANS 84 TL/MONTH 12-MONTH PLANS

.
