Topping up my Turkish phone?

Hi, I have had a Turkish phone and SIM card for a while but I haven't topped up for nearly 2 years. Is it still possible to just go into the mobile phone shop and put on credit?

Probably not. I know my sim card stopped working about a year of not being used.

If you had a turkcell sim card, it would have needed topping up every 3 months, it's now every 6 months.

Thanks for everyone's help. My phone and SIM card is Vodafone, if this makes a difference?

Is that right Nil - that's good news. i hadn't realised - thought it still only lasted 2 or 3 months.

Mine was Turkcell, which is probably why it got closed.

They changed it about a year ago Attagul, found out when I had trouble loading the credit and called their head office for help (don't want to lose my number). By the way (in case you're not aware) don't just buy a credit to top up whilst out there, go in a turkcell shop and ask what offers they have for the month. Got 400 free minutes for 15Tl this month :) Unfortunately I won't be there to use them though :(
