I am in Turkey and I have a gif gaff tariff. I have just added £10 airtime to make international calls. I want to call a local Turkish phone, any ideas of how to do it? Do I have to dial like I am calling from the UK to Turkey?

    Calls to Turkish Landlines whilst roaming in EU should cost 18p a minute.
    He's not roaming in the EU. He's roaming in Turkey.

    "Dialing within EU and select countries plus calls to voicemail (charged in per second increments after first 30 seconds) 18p per minute"

    PMSL....ermmm not is the right answer!
    Turkey isn't yet part of the EU.

    "Yet"? You imply that it will be one day. I think Australia is more likely than Turkey to join the EU!

    Why not? Israel is a member of the EUROPEAN Broadcasting Union :)

    Turkey formally applied for membership back in 1987. They might get in a bit faster once Greece exit, as they won't then be able to block their entry.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)

    You think Greece is the main country that wants to block Turkey from joining the EU? Try Germany and France.

    Funny enough I read an article related this last night ....

    After June 7, is Turkey closer to the EU?
