    I've lost 0, but my stylus doesn't hold in place and it's really worn [​IMG]

    I've lost one on the plane :-) it's a pain in the ass to get it back when it falls between all the chair metal....

    I have NEVER lost or broken a stylus. Ever. I've had a DS since launch.....didn't lose any from the original and haven't lost any from my black DSlite.

    I once lost one of my two expensive awesome metal styli I bought for my Tapwave Zodiac. Good thing I bought two in the first place. Still, I was quite sad because they are the best styli in the world! They are not made anymore, too. [​IMG] I found it again after a few weeks, though! [​IMG]
    I've got no idea where my original DS Phat stylus is but I don't care because I replaced it with a retratable stylus a long time ago.

    My son had a DS Phat some time ago, but he lost it with about 8 games. He also misplaced a few styluses too.
    Every now and then I'll find one wedged in the couch or in a corner. So I've found 2 but my dog ate 1, and I've still got the 2 original, so I'm up 1 [​IMG]

    Yes but wrong topic... You probably shouldn't turn on Wifi, though.

    on the way to E3 last year, a whole bunch of us (including some guys from psyfer) were playing new super mario bros., mario kart and tetris (all wi-fi enabled) without any issues. you just have to wait until the plane reaches the cruising altitude of 30,000ft.

    I've just lost one. Since there are like 1 or 2 games that need 2 stylus, it's not a problem for me.

    Going a little off topic but in Hotel Dusk, there's a place that you have to use 2 stylus' (the game tells you tu use your both hands). Since I only had one, I used my finger as a stylus and past that part. While I was touching however, the icon was showing right between the two touching points. So I think DS can't recognize multiple touches, right ?

    no, the ds cant recognize multiple touches

    in that part of hotel dusk you just trick the ds a bit ;-)

    Shit, I've lost both of my dsPhat stylus. Too cheap to go out and buy a new one so I just use the stylus that came with my Treo. It's more comfortable anyway lol [​IMG]

    I bought my DS phat used off of ebay and it didn't come with any to begin with so it was hard to lose any [​IMG] I borrowed one of my daughters spares and picked up this stylus holder that is hard to misplace and much easier to use
