Turkish phone help

I have had a turkish phone for years, due to personal reasons i left Turkey in January, i have not used phone since then. I am returning to turkey soon to tie up loose ends. I understand my sim card will no longer work (pay as you go) will i be able to top it up to work or will i now have to buy a new sim card with different number. If so how much please. Thanks

If you have a yabanci kimlik just go to a main Turkcel shop and register it for free, takes 5 mins

Re: Turkish phone help

You will need to buy a new sim card
It will cost around 50tl with top up
If you plan to use your sim for long period you should buy your sim card with your yabanci kimlik number or you’ll get cut off till you present the number to the relevant phone company .

Re: Turkish phone help

The problem is that because he has not topped up his sim card for a long time his number has been cancelled . He does not have an existing number
He needs to buy a new sim

Re: Turkish phone help

I left a number unused for 6 months and it wasn't lost, it was made 'dormant' until I reactivated it with another p-a-y-go payment.

Re: Turkish phone help

The SIM is not cancelled until day 271 from the last chargeable call, text or topup. The number at that stage is also lost.Technically after 181 days the SIM goes into a semi dormant stage where it can only receive calls but not make them even if it has credit.
