Mobile Phones

Do mobile phones work in Turkey. This seems like an odd question. On the turkey.com website, it says that non-Turkish registered mobile phones won't work. Is this right. I have a mobile phone with Orange will it work in Turkey. Thanks for any advice.

Yes, your phone will work in Turkey. Just be aware of the charges for using it there!

that is when you use a Turkish sim card in your telephone.

But, I advise you to use the land lines if possible, calling from Turkey to UK with a mobile will cost you more.

You will also be charged for receiving calls.

good luck!

Such speedy responses. Thank you. I only intend to have it as a means of contact should our airline need to advise us of a flight change. I won't be using it to make or receive other calls.

It's not an odd question,I had read the same thing and was prepared to register my phone etc.But as soon as I turned it on it linked up and worked

You can always rent a local phone cheaply when you are there

as everyone tells you yes you can use your phone as long as you have had it 6 months if its contract, also it is expensive to use there, do be very careful if taking out sim card and putting another one as suggested as this blocks phones as i acts like its been stolen!!!it is a thousand times cheaper to use hotel phones and in internet cafe or pay phones ,ps have a great time

yes your phone will work but dont use it!! Your better off getting a phone card and using the pay phones as they are much cheaper!!! I went over my bill by like 300 pound in gumbet because my nephew was due to be born!! I would not advise to use your mobile abroad any where! Just stick to the pay phones and they are cheaper after 8 o clock or 7!
