Will UK BT land line telephones work in Turkey?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of  BT dial phones that I would like to bring with me when I move to Turkey, these are fitted with UK standard, post 1980 British Telecom plugs (BS6312 431A).

Will these just plug into Turkish phone sockets  or would an adaptor/rewiring be required for them to function?

H Pete. As far as I remember the plug on a BT phone is a bit bigger than here and with the release clip on the side. Here's a pic of a Turkish plug, 1cm wide with the clip on the top. I think the UK plug to connect the handset to the dialing unit is similar to this but not the one to go in the wall socket.

Thanks, that looks like the plug that goes into the phone, so it may just be a matter of buying a new phone cable for Turkey. I will have to research this a bit more.

Yes of course, you're right, it'll be the same as the phone end of the cable that goes into the wall socket. Easily obtainable here, you get one included in a modem setup box.
