I'm in Istanbul for a couple months and my phone is broken but it's still under warranty. I would like to send my phone back home to get it fixed but as I don't speak Turkish and I find it's quite hard to even ask for a postoffice or DHL or FedX.

My question is also general but also specific for Istanbul since I'm here right now. How do people send valuable things back home? It's also a plus point if they have a pick-up service (e.g hotel or apartment).

  • I would start by calling the company that makes the phone. They probably won't allow you to get it fixed in Turkey, but it's worth asking. Feb 10 '14 at 14:58
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about international shipping.
