Mobile Phones

Mobile phones are widely used in Turkey among people between the ages of 12-70 and the coverage area has expanded significantly within Turkey recently. Mobile phones are readily available for purchase at dealers throughout the country and you can obtain a phone number either by subscribing to Avea, Telsim Vodafone and Turkcell or by obtaining prepaid cards. Each company offers friendly customer support to help you in the event your cell phone is lost or stolen, as well as offering technical support and answers to general questions.

During the last few years there is an increase on snatching away events in major cities and mostly the mobile phones were also stolen together with the bags. There is an easy way to avoid the thief use your phone. Note the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number of your phone where you can easily reach, of course not in your purse. Most probably your purse was also stolen with your phone.

Dial *#06# at your mobile phone and a 15 digit number appears. This is the IMEI number of your phone. As soon as you realize your phone is stolen immediately call your service provider (Avea, Turkcell…) and give the IMEI number. The company will immediately put your number out of operation. Even if the SIM card is changed no body can use the phone other than you.

To obtain an invoiced line subscription, you will need:
* Passport (if your passport is written in a language that does not used the Latin Alphabet, you will need to have your passport translated and certified by a Notary Public. Most translation companies will take care of getting the translated copy certified on your behalf.)
* Residence permit or certificate of domicile
* Utility bill - electricity, water, cable TV, natural gas, fixed line bill of the last two months
* Surety document - This document must be made by a Turkish citizen, in the amount of 1,200 YTL, and must be certified by a Notary Public (alongside the deed of guarantee, the photocopies of guarantor's proof of identification and utility bill shall be enclosed) or a letter of guarantee from a bank (must specifically state the reason for which it is issued) for an indefinite period of time, and should be for 1,200 YTL)
* Residence address of the individual submitting the bail amount

To obtain prepaid line subscription, you will need:
* A signed subscription agreement indicating it is a “Prepaid Line”, and you need to identify which of the three GSM Operators you have chosen to use
* Copy of the passport (the original should also be shown)
* You will receive a package for this "Prepaid Line" as well as the invoice for the device.

Here is an example of the Power of Attorney document you will need (and its translation) as you apply for your invoiced line mobile phone connection.
