foreign mobile phone register

It's a long time since I was here in this forum, my greeting and thanks to all the old and new members of this forum, it's a very complicated communication regulations here in turkey, I bought a sim card and unfortunately I registered it on my passport 6 months a go but the phone I registered the sim card on was broken so when I bought a new sim card it was locked after 14 days because I am using

g a foreign phone and they told me that I can register only one sim card for my passport for tow years.

I don't know what can I do to register the new sim with my phone.

Hi Khamsah,

It's good see you at TA forums again.

As to your question, I think the only way to overcome the problem you are having now with your SIM is to buy a new handset(phone) which is officially imported and registered in Turkey.

Hope this helps,

Have a wonderful time in Turkey.
