Only GSM (Non-North American cell phones) standard mobile celluar telephones function in Turkey. Otherwise, you can call in port from a phone both. You will need phone booth chips or chip cards, which can be purchased at the post office. The post offices are usually open from 8 a.m. through 6 p.m. You can only phone to the U.S. with public phones that are marked ?international?. There is at least one in every harbor. A regular phone call to the U.S. will cost around 5 dollars. If you want to be reached on board, there will be a functioning mobile phone with a German telephone number on board.
