Using a Turkcell vinn in the UK

Does anyone know if a Turkcell vinn can be used in the UK with an English sim card or what the roaming charges are for data usage, using a Turkish sim in the UK.

Re: Using a Turkcell vinn in the UK

Hope I'm talking about the same thing ( bit thick about these things).
I have one of these lurking upstairs in a drawer here in the UK.
Are you suggesting it could be of any use here in the UK?
Apologies if my question is ridiculous.

One thing you have to remember regardless if it's Turkcell Vinn or just a UK 'USB Dongle' both types work off a specific type of SIM Card (although they do fit and look the same they are not ones that are suitable for use in phones) however, you top them up the same as with a mobile phone but the credit is very limited on how long it lasts, these are good and ok for someone constantly on the move, but if not used for a certain length of time the SIM will expire and you will have to replace it with a new one, 'some suppliers such as O2 supply them free of charge, but I don't know if that is the norm.

How would you get one unlocked?
Mine is locked to O2 but I wouldn't mind getting it unlocked for whenever I do decide to use it.

Would I have to take it into a O2 shop for them to unlock?

**************************

Edit:
More luck than judgement but I just found a old site which sort of led me to another site where I entered my Dongle IMEI and it came up with a 'Unlock Code' but obviously until I now get a ''DATA SIM'' I don't really know if it will unlock or not.

But TBH I don't think I'll be using it any-time soon so will not be following this up any further.

Re: Using a Turkcell vinn in the UK

The Turkish Vinn deal is better than the UK deals . the Turkish one does not lose its sim for 270 days unless topped up before that time limit. The UK deals have to be topped up every 3 months or you lose the sim .plus I am sure you have to sign up to a contract . The Turk one is true PAYG because I just top mine up before the 9 months limit runs out .

Re: Using a Turkcell vinn in the UK

O.K. Just for me let's go back to basics.
I have a small contraption , known as as a Turkcell Vinn.
The only reason I brought it back to the UK is because I was told I couldn't pass it on to anyone else.
Here in the UK because our internet was so slow we signed up for a Satellite thing. No good.
Canceled it finally.
So, more daft questions, can I somehow use this Turkcell Vinn ( which I believe is Satellite) here?
Will a provider here let me use it?
Again apologies.
