Received in exactly 1 week with $2 ground shipping via USPS. Came packaged in a bubble mailer which had sufficient protection and could be easily placed in a small mail box. Battery was fully charged and in new condition. Battery labeling included Nokia hologram to check for authenticity. Have not used for more than a day yet so talk time/standby cannot be evaluated yet. Great price on sale for $4.95 plus only $2 S&H.
