    Hi guys first post

    I wanted to pick up the sky3ds plus, but because I live in Canada my options are kinda limited. I saw on the sky3ds that Wewaware was based out of the GTA so I decided to purchase a card from them. I paid for it through PayPal and upon completion of the purchase I wasn't given any tracking number or order status just a order number and I tried emailing and calling the number but I have yet to hear back via email and the number I call ends in french. After a day Im kinda worried I've been scammed, what should I do?

    Sorry for the long post. thanks

    I would hold out on getting a SkY3DS as firmware 10.3 and below will allow for downgrading soon which will allow you to use rxTools but if your dead set on paying for piracy no weweware is not a scam a good alternative would be modchipcentral.

    Thanks for the response

    I kinda already pulled the trigger on it I was just wondering if it was legit or not because I had no way of checking on my order. I'll take your word for it and wait a couple days then. BTW how would rxtools give the same features as sky3ds like the ap check and ability to play roms. Sorry about it kinda new just wondering

    You wont have to worry about anything with rxTools you can use custom themes, play any game regardless of AP, use Homebrew, and run Emulators.

    if u chose the free mail, u can't tracking your order. it will takes some days to arrive(Canada post can be really slow during Christmas....)
    If u didn't receive the mail 10 days after you place the order, talk to him, and try to ask for another copy.

    If you paid on Paypal you can wait a few days or a week then make a claim for item not received. You'll either get a tracking number or a refund :-) (if the seller doesn't provide a tracking number they automatically lose).

    I'll update you when I get the card if you want

    He got back to me so its looks pretty legit, thanks for the info tho

    Hello, from those who bought from wewaware, how long did it take for your stuff to arrive? I ordered a sky3ds a week ago. I emailed the seller twice already and sent him a text message. I haven't heard from him.

    Edit: Oh also, I don't live from from where the seller says he sells his stuff, so it really shouldn't take that long.

    Oh alright thanks. Hopefully I get mine soon. The seller hasn't communicated with me in any way. Anyway, thank you for your response!
