Re: uk phone not working for calls or texts

Sorry to be dense but I thought if you tried to use a UK phone with a Turkish Sim Card the phone was disabled by the Turkish Authorities.
If this is the case I guess they disable it by the IME number?
If this is the case then the actual phone is disabled in Turkey irrespective of what SIM card you put in it.
I might be completely wrong ( not an unusual event) so please correct me.
I would mention VOXI (part of Vodaphone) allow roaming in Turkey at no extra charge. You can also buy 100 minutes of calls for 5 to make international calls i.e use your UK mobile to phone Turkish numbers.

Re: uk phone not working for calls or texts

We were able to retrieve our existing Turkish number, found my old residency number that expired a number of years ago. The very helpful Turkcell guy put it in the system and bingo old number back in action and should be ok for our next visit.
The wife and I will be changing providers to Vodaphone on our return to uk ready for next year.

How come your uk phone is not closed now after 3 mouths ,like it used to be, and it was said in an earlier thread you have keep reactivating the sim every three months,not everyone can do that without leaving the country.So what is the benefit , if living here all the time

The Uk phone is only locked after 3 months if you insert a Turkish sim and don't pay the tax I think it is 1,500TL

If you don't insert a turkish sim the phone will never be locked by Turkey

I assume @evo80 is paying around 15 per month rental contract with Vodaphone UK and that includes all calls, text and 40GB data

Your help appreciated.
Put your imei number here and you should find out if your phone has been locked

Re: uk phone not working for calls or texts

Not on the same topic but this is an interesting bit of news about compensation .

iPhone users to receive 750 each after 'illegal' tracking of data
Over four million iPhone users could be in line for 750 each in compensation from Google, after it lost a landmark case at the Court of Appeal. Judges ruled today that the search giant had conducted unlawful and clandestine tracking of iPhone users in 2011 and 2012 without their consent through the use of third party cookies. Google could face a bill of up to 3.3bn from UK customers for allegedly gathering and sharing the personal *information of millions of iPhone users in the UK by bypassing *privacy settings. See if you could get a payout.
