Yes I noted that change.
I was on their 100 Gb data last year, this year changed to their 60 Gb deal due to that restriction rather than unlimited. Don't think we'll be using much of it in Turkey this year anyway though.

Using an unlimited data Smarty SIM in a Huawei 4G wifi router in the UK though, that uses 3 Mobile.

Re: Phone question

Yes I did same as you as I do not need unlimited in UK so I went for 50 gig deal plus 50 gig on a voda vinn.
Got really good deal from voda .Unlimit calls /Unlimit Tex / 50 gig plus free Prime.( or Netflix ) £19 a month sim only .Took about a hour of negotiating on the phone mind you 18 month deal .

Re: Phone question

Itís an exciting time planning your move! I am unfamiliar with the UK Vodafone program, but just to let you know, if you opt to get a Turkish sim you will not be able to automatically use it in a UK phone. You would have to register and pay a tax to open the phone here, and at this point, it is about 2000 lira in total. Unless you are tied to one particular phone brand, you can get a Good quality Turkish phone for half that. Good luck

Re: Phone question

With a vodafone UK contract sim in a UK mobile you can use it in Turkey as though you are in UK .And you can call abroad on that phone ( I think 48 countries )while in Turkey using the UK minutes at no extra charge .
Plus of course use any data you have for Internet using the hot spot feature on the mobile.

Maybe this should go in geek section .lol

Vodafone UK charging £6 per day for roaming in Turkey from May 2020

Just received this email. I for one am not happy! Haven't yet looked at the cost of the max plan

JULIE, we're making changes to the cost of roaming in Turkey.

From 6th May 2020, you can use your UK allowance of minutes, texts and data in Turkey. This will cost an additional £6 per day but only on the days you use your phone.

If youíd like to use your phone in Turkey with no extra daily costs, choose our Unlimited Max plan. Unlimited Max gives you inclusive roaming in 81 destinations worldwide, including Turkey Ė thatís more than any other UK network. Find out more about making the switch to Unlimited Max here.

If you donít want to choose Unlimited Max, or remain on your current plan and pay £6 per day to roam in Turkey, you can end your current agreement without a penalty for the next 30 days.

We really hope youíll stay, but to discuss your options please call 0808 005 7370. If we donít hear from you within 30 days your agreement with us will continue as before.
