Re: Mobile phone

The phone cards are only 5 TL and they last for about a half hour call to a UK land line - lots of phone boxes around. I have lived in Turkey for 11 years and still find this the cheapest way to call UK.

I hate to suggest this but get yourself a virgin payg sim and asked people in the UK to phone you as incoming calls to most European countries including Turkey are free its not a good option for making calls

Re: Mobile phone

I pay for my incoming Virgin PAYG calls. So check it out carefully. Though, to be fair, I have a very, very old contract.

Skype is cheaper. Free if both ends of the call have Skype and I pay just over £40 per year for infinite calls to UK landlines.

Re: Mobile phone

The WhatsApp now lets you phone for free to anyone else who has the phone app.
Been using it this last week and its better quality than Skype.

Topped up mine about 2 years ago with £15, dont think I have used any of it so far.

I know we are all different but I can never understand why people encourage being interrupted with phone calls at any time of the day (or night) on a mobile.

Each to our own I suppose.
