    Hi, I used to be a member here quite a few years ago when the TTDS first came out, cant remember my details so rejoined, used to buy them from dealextreme, and priceangles.... so now I've just got hold of a new style 3DS on FW 9.6, I want to buy a SKY3DS (UK) doing lots of searching on here. www.3dscarduk.com was recommended and is an authorised dealer, but I emailed them a couple days ago to check stock levels but they have not replied, so not that keen to order, Any of you guys in the UK bought one recently any advice on a reputable dealer?

    I bought mine from www.3dscarduk.com, it shipped from outside the UK as they didn't have any in stock but it still got here in about 1 and a half weeks and works perfectly. I have yet to see someone claiming www.3dscarduk.com cards aren't genuine which is also a big plus.

    Thanks sounds good, only I have now emailed them twice over the last few days, and had no response, "checked junk mail" so not going to order from them as they have no communication at the moment, maybe they have closed down,

    Did they answer to you yet? Because I was planning to buy from them too. Also do they have the payment method called Paypal?

    It sounds like Paypal has been shutting down sellers who use it because flashcarts are against their ToS, so you'll likely be out of luck if you want to use Paypal. I suppose if you want to use Paypal and don't mind it shipping from the U.S., you could use PeachDS.

    No answer, you try, maybe my emails are not getting through,
    I did a mock purchase and got to the payment screen you just put your credit card details directly on their unencrypted web page! no secure payment method, no paypal, from reviews they are trustworthy, still a very unsafe way to pay.

    Edit had a reply ....the single word "yes"

    OK picked a S/H one on ebay, next day delivery. now need a card to play NDS roms. my acekard/edge/r4i/TTDS wont work on this firmware. If I counted all the money I've spent on flashcards/sd cards I could have bought quite a few games. LOL

    Just had an email from them they don't post to the UK

    Well, it seems like buying the console was a bad idea... I might sell it now.

    I bought my Sky3ds from 3dscarduk.com about a month ago - it arrived within a week (mailed from within the uk).
    The payment is secure; it uses a third party payment system once you complete the order.
    No complaints... but they definitely had fresh stock when I ordered mine.

    Hi I thought I would update this thread for those in the UK having trouble finding a supplier, I have tried a company called nds-card.com (china) with a purchase of a R4i sdch card for the NDS they take paypal, emailed me when payment was received and when they dispatched, the card came in 10 days and was well packed was genuine and worked fine.
