    I had to replace my DS Phat for a DS Lite, but that's it.

    Touchscreen screen wouldn't calibrate after a month, or so, of use. It was slightly off the point [​IMG]

    Same because the silver Lite looked beautiful and I'd rather be with a fit one than a fat one [​IMG]

    No. I had mine since last year May, and it's still in perfect condition. I do have some scratches on the touchscreen, but I got a screen protector now, so it's fine.

    man.. I had to TWICE.

    I bought a DS and an R4 from this guy online. I didn't know any better back then. but now I know, the R4 was fake.

    anyways, I played with the DS for a week, and then bam. It just turned off and wouldn't turn on again.

    I had to replace it at nintendo (thank goodness it still had it's warranty)

    then, 2 DAYS after i got it replaced, it turned off again and wouldn't turn on.

    I then had to go replace it AGAIN

    At this point I was thinking it was the R4's fault. So I got a cycloDS and never had the problem ever again.


    although, to this day I still don't know what made my DS break... Many people told me it couldn't have been the R4..

    Once, because my left hinge killed itself on my Polar White DSL.

    Yep, nothing like stupidity to make a person need a new DS [​IMG]

    Word to the wise, shirt pockets are a massive bad idea. Just say no to shirt pockets.

    Twice, but in actuality, three times. First time was dead pixel. Second time was broken hinge. Hinge broke on my third one, but I just got the case changed so I didn't really replace the whole DS. But the touch screen is a little off and it has a dead pixel, so I'm thinking of selling it and getting this one

    Haven't replaced any DS yet, but maybe in the future when a new model or new color comes out. Also depending if my current one begins to wear out.
