    Ordered my r4i gold December 3rd and still have gotten it yet. I know shipping is probably going to be longer because of the holidays but previous orders from dealextreme.com (so yeah, long time ago) got here in less than 10 days.

    Anyone else waiting on an order or just got theres?

    Well, the middle U.S. is having bad weather, prolonging shipments. Although, unless it took 15 days to process your order, and then ship it seems unlikely.

    Hmm. For the record, I'm on the East Coast, and I assume they enter the US through California. I'm not sure how much an effect the middle U.S. would have, but good to know.

    Also, this wasn't meant to be a "my package is taking so long" kinda thread. I've bought things from China before. Moreso I was just curious what other peoples wait times have been like during christmas season.

    Still waiting. Tomorrow will mark a month since I ordered it... nds-card responded promptly to my query, but only stated that I should be patient and allow up to 35 days for hong kong post.

    That sounds kinda poop. I'm also waiting for a package from nds-card.com. A Supercard DSTWO in fact. I want it so bad my r4i Gold Plus is so poopy!

    I ordered an R4i Save Dongle from there recently, hopefully it won't take too long but they do predict 7-35 days.

    Mail at the christmas period is known to buckle under the pressure, and I'm guessing you went with free shipping as I did.

    It finally got here friday. 31 days since ordering. But now it won't update to the latest firmware because it's the metroid hunter icon one. sigh.
