Shipping a phone from US by post?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if the US Postal Service has instituted similar restrictions as Thailand and many other countries forbidding international mailing of phones with batteries?  

I want to purchase a phone from Amazon, have it delivered to my sister in the US, then have her mail it to me in Bangkok.  I'm not sure it's possible to do any more.

Phones with battery installed can be shipped internationally:


135.62 General

Only lithium cells and batteries under 135.63 and 135.64 that are properly installed in the equipment they are intended to operate may be sent internationally or to APO, FPO, or DPO locations when not restricted or prohibited by the destination country or APO, FPO, or DPO location. For specific country restrictions, see the applicable Individual Country Listing. For specific APO, FPO, or DPO restrictions, see the information for the destination ZIP Code in the article titled “Overseas Military/Diplomatic Mail” published in each issue of the Postal Bulletin.

Lithium batteries packed with equipment and lithium batteries sent separate from equipment are prohibited. Damaged or recalled batteries are prohibited and may not be mailed internationally under any circumstances.
