Happy Easter everyone.. I have just post the same topic for some reason I cant see it so if I double post it I am sorry..
I managed to get myself a new contract with o2 today with a new handset. My question was is it ok to have a new contract with Iva I hope I it’s not breech my agreement. I told the sale rep that I am in Iva and might not pass the credit check so I was honest.
I can cancel within 14 days so just want to makes sure it’s ok to have a brand new contract..

So it would be ok to have a new contract.. I was worried it would be consider as a credit .. thank you so much Kallis I managed to get Samsung s9 I was wanting and trade my phone so no upfront payment .. the sales rep even gave me an extra £50 when I explained my finance situation :)

You got a good deal there. As long as you can afford the contract and it makes no difference to your monthly payments, you should not have a problem.

Happy Easter to you to Oya :-)

I got a new (additional) contract with what were then T-Mobile (now part of EE, I think) for a mobile hotspot during my IVA. I paid the extra from my already agreed allowances and there was no problem.

I was with o2 for years. Than I changed to Vodafone for free roaming in turkey as I go for 5 weeks every summer. But they removed turkey from free zone so I am out and free from my contract as they made a change

I would take GBP or dollars - don't drink tap water and don't forget to do your visa before you go!!! If you are like us, you'll have your flight times altered. We've had ours altered once so far.

Which part ? One thing if you are buying something apart from brand named big shops don’t give the first price they say try to drop the price. Don’t just eat kebab we have really nice Turkish pizza called Lahmacun and do have a big Turkish breakfast . Turkish people are very friendly and helpful towards tourists so I am sure you be having good time.
And hey the currency is very high at the moment £1 is nearly 5.60 Turkish liras so this would make some extra spending :)

We're going to Olu Deniz - I use the Genuine Fake Shop - dirt cheap and the stuff is good quality.

Oh I love oludeniz .. the water is so pure and like glass. Because it’s very see through and calm hardly have any waves that’s why it called Dead Sea.. I am sure you will enjoy there so much
