Oh, here we go! :)

Pretty much every single city in the world had different names in different times which is only natural. I think we should rather celebrate the cultural richness and the great history those times resulted in, rather than having such a pointless argument :)

Greetings from Ankara/Ancyra/Angora :)

The argument is not pointless, rather it very much has the point to show 1 set of people stealing another set of people's lands. "Celebrating the cultural richness" is easy said coming from those who take your land. That city was founded by the Greek/eastern roman emperor Constantine over 1000 years before the Turks stepped foot in those lands.....so sure, easy to say "celebrate cultural richness"

Everyone here must know this info:

Turkey is very stupid country . Every person when enter Turkey border must leave his mobile because it is locked from operator !!!!

You must pay thousands Dollars to get registered IMEI !!! (New Phone).

?

Nobody has to leave their phones on the border. But if it's locked, obviously you won't be able to use it with any of the Turkish GSM operators. That's true for any country, not just Turkey.

And to register a new phone purchased outside of Turkey you have to pay around 50$ to get it registered, not thousands of dollars.

Get your facts straight. Istanbul has been a city for 1000 years before it was called Constantinopole. It was founded around 700 BC and was called Byzantium, and after 1000 years was re established as Constantinopole. And this is the known history. I'm pretty sure that people have lived in this area for 15000 years even before that including Turkish people. So no, it wasn't before Turks stepped foot in those lands. They have always been there.

Not to mention, only a bunch of Turkish people would argue over something like this in a technology forum. Have you ever seen in any forum that after someone mentioned the name of New York City, a Dutch guy coming up and calling "Don't you mean New Amsterdam?"

ummm, I think its a pretty established fact that turks originated from mongolian and central asian steppes……they have NOT always been in Greek areas.

Being ******** over stuff that happened centuries ago... how typical of Greek people.:rolleyes:

Also there's no problem bringing a phone to Turkey and using it there in roaming. Whoever says otherwise is definitely wrong. I am not Turkish but I travel to Turkey often and I've never had problems using my phones there.
