  1. I could connect to both sites also.
  2. As far as I can tell No. The UK Border Agency states on their web site:"As an EEA or Swiss national, you have the right to live and work in the UK (known as the 'right of residence') if:■you are working here (and have registered or obtained permission from us if this is required - see Employment below); or■you can support yourself and your family in the UK without becoming an unreasonable burden on public funds"
  3. Check out these links. They seem to have information that applies:http://www.visa-office.com/non_euro_partner.htmlhttp://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/eucitizens/
  4. You can recharge using their web site but as you say it is in turkish and you will have to sign up. It is in the top right of the web page and the section is titled "My Vodafone". You can use Google Toolbar or other applications to translate the web page into another language.
  5. It is "Call me angel" or literally "I call me angel".
  6. If you drive it in, you have to drive it out. It has to be put one someone's passport. They are the one that has to leave Turkey driving the car out just like the "drove" it in.
  7. They have language schools in Adana which teach German which should not be an issue. I actually know at least one native German speaker which can give you a really good evaluation of your German speaking ability/skill.
  8. From their web sites they accept test/exam scroes other than the YOS for international students that are not Republic of Turkey or Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus citizens. The Bilkent link for the Admission Requirements for all International applicants to Bilkent University for Full-Time Undergraduate Degree Programs is:http://www.bilkent.edu.tr/bilkent/academic...l/fulltime.htmlThe Koc link (Scroll Down) is:http://www.ku.edu.tr/ku/index.php?option=c...&Itemid=366The Sabanci link is:http://www.sabanciuniv.edu/test/www/eng/?o...ns/yabanci.html
  9. Yes, they can. Up to 10-15 percent of the total bill in some cases. It depends on the number of products. See the following links for some more info.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standby_powerhttp://standby.lbl.gov/summary-table.html
  10. There is an international school in Izmir. It is called Izmir MEF International School. TechGuy
  11. Use "+" + country code + area code + number (example +1 XXX XXX XXXX) or 00 + country code + area code + number (example 001 XXX XXX XXXX) to make international calls.00 is the international exit code for Turkey that is used when making international calls. On cell phones you can use + in place of the 00. If that does not work you may have to include the network code of the number you are sending the SMS message to. Good luck! TechGuy
  12. Is your cell phone number enabled for internationals calls? It needs to be enabled for international calls in order to send international text or SMS messages. This is normally not enabled by default. Instructions for this are available in the Forums. Are you able to send text messages to numbers in Turkey? If not, then the SMS configuration needs to setup on your phone. TechGuy
  13. Blackberries are available inTurkey but I don't know about the charges. They cost around between 1500-2000 TL to purchase plus you have to pay for service and usage. Mine is free since my job provides it and it is used primarily for work. Of course, they block everything but phone, SMS, and email but it works for me. TechGuy
  14. You can also receive calls on a computer. With some of the VOIP services you can also do video calls, etc. and get a local number in the states for people to call you from landlines and cell phones but they normally charge for that on a monthly basis. Look at Vonage (Need a stateside address when signing up), Skype, and there are a host of others to see which one is best for you. VOIP is probably the cheapest way for you to make and receive calls to/from the states while in Turkey. Of course, it is given that you would need a computer and internet service. TechGuy
  15. It is raw beef or mutton fat, especially the hard fat found around the loins and kidneys. TechGuy
  16. The same rules apply to as the U. S. Military because you are a DoD civilian. You will be under a NATO Beyanamme instead of the Carnet system. You can ship it in your household goods in addition to a car if you want to ship a car. TechGufy

  18. Yes, I guess it would be. But is it worth the hassle?
  19. I would not bring it in. To get rid of it in-country you would have to pay Customs and an agent as you would still be importing it although to junk it.
  20. His name is Jack Wells. He is based out of Izmir now and visits Incirlik about once a quarter for a few days.
