I just moved to Istanbul and I broight my unlocked BlackBerry phone along with me. I know I would have to register my phone to be able to use my Turkish line. My question is, does the BlackBerry messenger service work in Turkey, and is there a monthly fee?

Thanks,

Taky

Hey there ,

You have to register your phone first and after that with one of the cellular companies you can buy a sim and a mobile plan which includes talk minutes and internet usage. I think its about 15 dollars extra per week for the blackberry services. But if you are going to stay longer you can buy a regular plan instead of prepaid ones.....


cheers

nope just one but depending on which brand of phone you have, they might unlock or change imei numbers in Kadıköy or same type of places.....

Oguzhan please do not to mention that this kind of IMEI registration (in Kadikoy or somewhere else) is ILLEGAL in Turkey.

I will be staying in Turkey for about a year. If I register my cell phone that I brought with me from home when I moved here, will it only be working for a 3 months only?

Please note that I bought a Turkcell sim card with my foreign passport, so the line is in my name.

Thanks,

Hi;

This is not related to your sim card ; this is related to registration of your mobile phone IMEI number here. There is 2 ways. You can register your phone at Turkcell offices by presenting your passport or you can go Kadikoy ; Yazicioglu ishanı than you can ask them to break IMEI or insert IMEI. (this is not legal)

otherwise you phonw eill not be work ith one month time not 3 months

That's a too complicated system! Why can't I bring my phone to Turkey and just use it as long as I want to!
