Please note that not all foreign mobile service providers have a service contract with a mobile phone provider inside Turkmenistan, and that your mobile phone may therefore not operate during your stay in Turkmenistan (and if it does, it will mainly be in the most densely populated areas only). The cell phone provider in Turkmenistan with service agreements with other foreign providers is called MTS TM (a sister company of the Russia-based MTS). You can contact your own service provider to ask for an update on their service contract with MTS.
