[edit] Prepaid plans

In Turkey you must register with the government mobile phones purchased outside the country, it is separate from any SIM card registration. They say you have 30 days to do that, but in practice the period can be shortened to 18 days, after this period your phone will be blocked. Registration is best to be done the same time when you purchase a SIM-card from a network operator's store (resellers are unlikely to understand the concept). Make sure the store assistant understands that you would like to "register the IMEI" (International Mobile Equipment Identity - the unique number that identifies your device) in order to avoid any misunderstandings.

[edit] Turkcell

Turkcell SIM card costs 20 TRY / 11.23$, which includes 10 TRY / 5.61$ of call credit, also you will be charged 10 TRY / 5.61$ to register your phone. It is important because foreign phones get cut off if they are not registered. After you have installed your SIM card, dial 8090 and choose English in the menu to activate your credit. To check your balance dial *123# then press Send.
