    Posting an iphone

    I'm sending an iphone 4 to the UK, what must I do about sending the battery.
    Can I leave it in the phone, do I leave it in a plastic battery box and send it with the phone.
    What do I do?

    mmm, good question Disley, I imagien you can send as usual but not express. maybe give Auspost a call, with any luck they will reply before you need to send it.
    I will be travelling in time, please leave a message and I will get back to you last week.

    I'd just send it. People were sending batteries for many years before new cheap crappy cells started leaking and causing problems in planes. iPhones don't have cheap batteries.\

    edit: the internet of things says to remove the battery from the phone and wrap separately.

    Actually they do I think it was the Iphone 4 that had overheating issues on planes, a few caught fire. Didn't burn the plane down or anything.

    No iphone is best Iphone (I'm biased I'll admit) but anyways.
    Personally if it's a model with a removable battery i'd do so and if possible yes, put it in a clear battery case.

    Thanks for the help.
    If I put the battery in the plastic case, and post it with the phone it should be ok?

    If the battery has no chance of creating a circuit, that is in plastic case or taped up you should be good.
    Can you remove the battery from an iphone 4?

    Dunno about removing a battery from an iphone......

    Supremely ironic that Australia will allow anything to come in by air, but on the way out it is forbidden.....

    looked at a courier service like DHL or fedex ?
