Hi Carolxj,

You can get a Turkcel card in Turkey I dont think its very expensive and the mobile shop will set it up for you. This year we are going to use Skype. I dont know what type of phone you have, but Skype to Skype is free and Skype to land line for voice calls is only a couple of pence a minute.

If you dont understand Skype, but have any kids between 10 & 15 they will put you right. I'm 67 and found out on line.

Good luck and enjoy your holiday

To be honest if you are calling the UK from Turkey you are better off buying a phone card and using the public phones. Both calling and texting abroad from Turkish mobile is quite expensive.

İf you intend using the Sim to make calls within Turkey then it may be worth while getting a sim card. You will need to take your passport with you to buy it. Most are around 25 lira. Make sure you

The English language part of the Avea website http://www.avea.com.tr/index_en.shtml

Vodafone site is in Turkish but check out that and Turkcell as well as they all offer pay as you go packages.

Make sure you ask for Faturasiz - basically bıll less!!!
