Vodafone have announced that they are changing their terms on free roaming and Turkey will now be part of 'world' not 'Europe'. This means using your vodafone mobile in Turkey will cost 6 a day.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

I spoke to them last night & they confirmed this & they also stated that I would be able to cancel my contract with them without any charges as they had changed thier terms of conditions
They stated that it was Ofcom whom gave them the directive, therefore it would be logical to assume that this would also be applicable to all service providers.

Does anyone know of any alternative providers whom include Turkey ?

Moved to Vodafone last year from O2 to access inclusive roaming in Turkey. Will now need to sort something else out, maybe get a local phone contract. Not happy to say the least.

For basic calls the cost of a local phone can be very cheap, then just use your UK phone for the WI FI.

And yes damn I too recently activated my PAYG Vodafone SIM and put credit on it so will also now have to 'maybe' try and find a alternative, or just not bother because TBH with the WI-FI etc paid phone calls are very rarely made.

However LycaMobile can be good for Phoning Turkey FROM the UK when you activate the SAVE feature will lasts for 30 days and then simply renew it again making calls to Turkey just 1 pence per minute
By simply sending a text marked SAVE to 2525.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

i use access code 08704370437 to call Turkey landlines and mobiles from my UK mobile or home phone . If you get 0870 calls from your home phone free then you can use this num [ no charge ] I am lucky as I also get that 0870 num included in my 1500 free mobile mins ,so I can call from my mobile free .

I will be leaving Vodafone asap. Bloody cheek. They pull you in then spit you out. I'm furious and will not be a customer any more.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

Quite obscene really, I've been bragging to people for 12 months how good vodafone are for Turkish usage and to 'get on it', How many were pulled in I don't know, I apologise. Users are now automatically put on the roam further plan which means unlike other providers you can't even send a txt for 40p or call for whatever per minute because (as mentioned by OP) as soon as you send 1 txt it triggers the 6 daily charge....What a rip off !

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

well as mine is PAYG it seems its time to use-up my credit and then get rid of it, has anyone come up with any solutions, then again as I also have A Turkish registered phone and a 'Turk-Telekom (AVEA) SIM I'm wondering if I really need a alternative, ''Need & Want''?
Especially because the only time I would be wanting to Phone the UK would be in a EMERGENCY so then I guess I'd have to put up with their 45 Krush per minute call charge.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

I too was pleased as punch with the Vodafone Turkey deal. Just called them and they gave me a number of options. Cancel for free, go to sim only or upgrade now for free. I've only had my phone for four months and they're going for 400 plus. Upgraded and phone now on eBay.
