Mobile contracts for foreigners

Turkcell are now offering a full range of mobile phone contracts for foreigners with residence permits who sign up for a new number and a 12 month deal.
Previously yabancis have been restricted to pay as you go.
To sign up you need to provide your passport, ikhamet and proof of address, either a printout from the nufus office or the e devlet site, or a utility bill.
Worth shopping around as some stores will ask for payment for a new sim whilst others will give it for free.
The whole process takes around 15 minutes, no advance payment required and connection is immediate.
I presume other operators will be following Turkcell if they haven't already.

Re: Mobile contracts for foreigners

Every time I make a call from my prepaid Turkcell I am now getting a bossy female voice telling me that I must upgrade my prepaid account as it will expire in less than 5 days time. Having been here now since 15th I've concluded it's a sales pitch by any other name.

Re: Mobile contracts for foreigners

It could well be. We just decided to go for it as cheaper and easier for what we use. We have had Turkcell prepaid for 14 years and have switched briefly to every other operator here but despite their assurances to the contrary have no coverage in our village. Turkcell however has 4G in the same spot but unlike in the UK will not allow other operators to piggyback on its transmitter sites so every other operator is a dead area.

Re: Mobile contracts for foreigners

All I want is a phone that I can use while in TC and turn off for the winter and the account I have allows me to close the phone for up to 9 months without them cancelling the SIM.
Why would I change when inevitably a new contract will be less flexible?
