    Well it does say wireless PDAs, so it might work seeing as tho the majority of PDA have 802.11 wifi. Couldn't hurt to try since it's only $1.50 total [​IMG]

    well also considering that the ds doesnt have a external antanna port.
    it would still be a waste of time

    Not really. all cellphones don't either. Just mount it behind the battery like you would a cell phone. Just get it man.

    Yep those stickers do absolutely NOTHING. Because a little piece of shiny plastic will do nothing to maginify incoming waves. As stated, the company that sold them got sued and was shut down.

    if these stickers worked, why wouldn't the phone makers put them on when they manufacture them?

    answer: because they are worthless.

    I could see it working if it was made right, and if behind the battery of some devices either needed extra sheilding or it just happened to be in the right spot. I mean, satellite dishes have been made of fiberglass before... with a very thing coat of conductive/reflective paint.

    On the whole though, I dont think the ones I have seen were made so they would work right. Could almost laminate some tin foil and get a better result.
