    Hi guys

    Im new to the 3ds/ ds scene [​IMG] My gf bought me a 3ds over the weekend [​IMG]

    I just wanted to know, i ordered the R4i Gold 3ds flash cart with 2gb sd card from the website, www.r4town.com and at first the shipping was estimated at 16 EUR and then the guy notified me apparently the shipping will be 20EUR(I need to send him 4EUR more for the shipping) and that my order will be shipped within the next 12 hours. 24 hours later the website is in maintanace and haven't heard a word about a shipping number or anything, im using DHL shipping by the way. Then this morning he lets me know that their website is in maintanance and he cant give me a shipping number now i will have to wait a few more hours......but my product should be here in about 2 days.

    Sorry for the long story....just wanted to know if this website is legit or not and if any of you used their services before as I used about 40 EUR and dont want it to be for nothing.....

    Thanx,
    Witklip

    I recommend you go to a more well known site, as there are a lot of sites with "R4" in their titles as it is the most popular flashcart and most people know about it, so they can attract people more easily.

    and drew, China's the one who manufactures the carts, anyway.

    The reason i chose to pay for the shipping, is because i do not want to wait 4 weeks for the card, but if i waited shiping wouldve been free

    Also, I think the site looks fishy. There are no reviews about it on the shop and I can't get to the site.

    Away from you.
    Open a dispute with your bank, if you paid with credit card.
    And since they don't have a tracking no., you'll win one with PayPal too.

    The website looks very fishy. Unless the site gives in I doubt you'll get your money back, although it's still worth a try. Can't help you if that other site you mentioned is safe as I've never used them, nor heard any reviews. Maybe ask someone who knows a lot about these things on the site.

    You should not have bought the R4! You should learn to choose those stores with golden accounts on shoptemp

    Hey I recently became a distributor of the r4ids.cn cards check out my site HackYourConsole.com
    I'm located in Miami fl I ship the same day or the next...

    And of course you can get your money back! Call your bank issuer and tell them you did not receive your item and that the web site you bought from isn't replying / giving you updates

    When it comes to some banks they give you the money back. Some don't so good luck...
