I am touring Turkey with a group, then afterwards I plan to rent an apartment for a few months in Istanbul. How can I call the US and be able to receive calls from the US inexpensively?
I would suggest you to buy a cell phone and then buy international packages.
You can check
- Vodafone (www.vodafone.com.tr),
- Turkcell (www.turkcell.com.tr) and
- Avea (www.avea.com.tr)
as GSM providers.
These websites are all in Turkish. But you can find shops of them in every city and you can consult represantatives in these shops.
Also, I would suggest to check a Turk Telekom shop for internationals calls.
If you can have a landline (Turk Telekom - sole provider), that would be the most inexpensive calls for you.
Let me know if you would like to check me what you found. about 5 years ago
