Know this question has been asked....... can't find any threads on this site. Will buy a new cell before I move to Turkey. I know it will be blocked after a certain amount of time. Have heard that you can register and use one foreign phone. Anyone know the procedure?

You can bring you mobile here but you must get in registered within 60 days. I have included below the details of what you'll need from our blog piece on our website Aegean Dream Homes.

You'll need to visit the tax office and the phone provider you'll wish to use to complete the process. It's not a difficult process when you know what to do as you'll see (I haven't included the full post as I'm not sure if that's allowed on the forum).

In my opinion if you are purchasing a new phone anyway unless you get an extremely good price at home it's worth purchasing in Turkey - Mobile phones are more expensive here but you can easily walk into a store/service centre with the receipt if something goes wrong.

To register the phone you will require;

* The IMEI number (a 15 digit identifier that can usually be found within the device or by dialling *#06#)
* Your passport showing your date of Entry to Turkey
* Residency book/card
* The tax payment in cash (currently 115TL)

I hope this answers you're query Ck

Ck,just to update you,a residency shouldn't be required.Although it is stated by the Turkish Telecoms that an imported & non registered phone will not be cut off for 60 days,if registering the handset this still has to be done withing 30 days of the date on your entry stamp in your passport.
I recently assisted a friend register a 3g ipad and was told this by Bodrum authorities.

Got here a few weeks ago. Purchased an iphone 6plus. Dont think I can get a residence permit in the 30day time frame. The phone is for my wife. She already registered a phone less that two years ago. She is turkish so her process was different. Do I need the residence permit?

Just submitted all my paperwork to the Yabanci office. Got a tax id number. Getting close to the 30day mark. A girl at the big Turkcell office in Alsancak said it was 60days. All the sites online say 30days. Don't know if I will get my permit back in 60days. Should I try to register the phone and bring the residence permit when it comes in?

Ryan,if you re read my post above from the 18th Dec. you don't need an RP to register a handset,if one shop says you do,go to another shop.
