Trying to avoid paying the 100TL for Cellphone registration

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Turkey from the 31st of December to 14 of January.

I know there is a 100TL charge for registering a phone to be able to use it in Turkey. From what I've read if it isn't registered it stops working around the 7 to 10 day mark.

Can I avoid paying the 100TL by getting one SIM card and carrying two phones with me? When one stops working, I'll just put the sim into another device and use(Both together should last me the 14 days). Is this do-able?

Also, what is the best pre-paid service(data included)?
