Buying/Selling a registered phone by a foreigner

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have already registered my cell phone about a year and a half ago. I just bought a new cell phone here and now I want to sell my old one (iPhone 4 32GB). A few days ago, I went to a shop who buy second hand phones, and he refused buy mine, because it is registered with a foreigner's passport and as he said it only works for me! Later I tried to insert another SIM card (my brother's who is a foreigner here as well) and it didn't work on my old phone. So I think that it only works with the SIM/number it was registered first and with no other sim, right? Then I am unable to sell it to someone else here in Turkey?

Correct. That's the whole idea of this system, to stop people bringing in phones to sell.
