Yes, for a limited time.

However, if there's a shortage of telephone lines in your area you could soon find that your line and number have been allocated to someone else.

As we pay by direct order every month whether we are there or not I would assume that our phone is always connected. Any views on this

I would say you are correct Lesley. We have had ours for nearly five years now, been to UK for seven week periods and never had a problem. As you say, because we pay by direct order usage is immaterial.

how do you go about doing this ?
what are the set-up costs ?

Thanks.

You can get a phone line in your name if you have a Residence Permit or Citizenship. You don't have to live in Turkey full-time though.

And if that Turkish person gets into debt and/or has a court order against them, it's possible that you could have the bailiffs knocking at the door of your property. It's up to you then to prove that they don't live at your place.

Worth thinking about ? :hmm:
