The cheapest way to make domestic calls is from a public
phone using a phone card sold at the post office (PTT). If the PTT is closed, you can
usually find local entrepreneurs selling cards at a slight mark up near the public phones.
Your next challenge is to find a phone. Lift the hand set
and push the language button for either English, German or French and see what it says.
If its says, "Welcome," you have a phone that is working. Insert the phone card according
to the arrow and you''re ready to start dialing. Inside Turkey numbers outside your area
code require a 0+ area code + number. Bodrum and Datca, for example, are in the same area
code and don''t require an 0 + area code. If you dial an area code when you don''t need one,
you''ll just get a busy signal.
If you use a Contour Telephone at your pension or a shop,
expect to pay 3 to 4 times the PTT rate. These are not the phones tobe used for International
calls. To make a long distance international call you will need at least one 100 unit phone
card. It maybe good for from 2 - 4 minutes. The card is around $4. If you wish to dial an
operator in your home country, use the home direct phone number, which is free.
