Has anyone on the forum noticed a hike in their monthly turkcell mobile bills? over the last 2 months my bill has almost doubled in size and yet the phone usage is about average!

My bill this month was/is 24 tl.

If you dont have SKYPE suggest you look at getting it. I use it for most of my calls here and abroad.

Skype to Skype ( called Skype IN ) is free and Skype out ( to any non Skype number ) is 30 a year plus just over 1p per minute anywhere in the world.



Some useful advice for using a mobile can be found on MartinsMoneytips@moneysavingexpert.com and for other money saving advice and the latest offers on insurance,flights,reclaiming for being over charged by your bank and credit cards etc etc. Not that they all apply here in the TRNC but can be useful when going back to the uk.

A very useful site and free.

While I agree that Skype is a good idea, I should point out that call charges vary ACCORDING TO THE DESTINATION - not where the call is made from.

Calls to UK landlines CAN cost as little as 1.2 p per min (1.4p inc vat), although calls to UK mobiles cost over 10 times that amount. 0844,0845,0870 & 0871 numbers cost from 7 to 13p per min approx, calls to UK premium rate numbers can be as high as 1.72 PER MIN!

There are plenty of countries where it costs over 30p per min to call them on Skype.

If you purchase your Skype credit within the EU, you will be charged VAT on top...

The 30 annual charge only applies if you want a (say) UK number that friends who do not have a computer can use to call you, via your computer.

So, do be careful, and check the rates before starting a long chin-wag

Keith.

Sorry,

Forgot to mention, calls to TRNC landlines via Skype are 9 pence per minute (+VAT if applicable) - even if you are based here...

Not sure if that covers mobiles also, I'll try to find out.

Use your own mobile and ring friends abroad for the cost of a local call for you both
