    Hey,

    After finding about GBAtemp and reading it`s forums a bit, I just couldn`t resist to get a DS Lite.

    Now I have a brand new DS lite on my table, took out of the box just a couple of hours ago.

    First thing I wanted to do is to order a M3 DS Simply or R4DS (AFAIK they`re almost indentical?)

    Here begins the fun part:
    Went to ConsoleSource, signed up, got transfered to internetsecure.com payment proxy, entered all the required data and finally, system declined my payment. After checking all the inputs symbol by symbol and trying a couple more times, I couldn`t get any further.

    My CC seems to work fine, been shopping with it before, registered a paypal account, etc. I can log-in to my bank`s internet panel no problem, nothing odd there. And I do have enough money in my bank account.

    Long story short, I`ve tried numerous shops. Some offered insane prices, others didn`t want to ship to Lithuania or required to pay a fortune for delivery, one more shop refused my cc.

    So, I found gameyeeeah.com. Since their prices are reasonable (shipping is pricy tho), they accept payments via paypal and user feedback is relatively positive, thought I`d go with them.

    However, sometimes, when trying to transfer bigger amounts of money using paypal (I have a verified account), I encounter a bug. When trying to login to make a payment the browser just gets stuck there. It`s not a Browser/OS/Computer/ISP problem, as I`ve tried to pay using different ones. Of course I contacted PayPal about this, however all I got was a number of template replies.

    So, paypal`s out.

    Could any of you post a list of trusted shops to get M3/R4 from?
    I`m pretty desperate rite now.

    I bought my Supercard miniSD and R4DS there. No PayPal. Use coupon code RHS07 for a 5% discount on the card you choose.

    My SCminiSD works perfectly and my R4DS should be here tomorrow. They ship using the U.S. Postal Service. I received my SC in less than a week and if my R4DS shows by Friday, that will have shipped in less than a week too. (ordered Saturday night)

    Hopefully other people will chime in and help you out with other places to buy them if you don't want to use RHS.

    Thanks for help.

    Anyways, as always, the thing you least expect to go wrong will always go wrong.
    I couldn`t order anything becouse of my CC.

    All is almost sorted out now, managed to order M3 via consolesource, but missed the `Click here to finish` link so my order ain`t valid yet. Messaged the support, no reply yet.

    Hopefully I`ll have my M3 here next week [​IMG]

    Til then DS will have to live in a drawer.

    By the way, before posting I did a quick search and didn`t find a thread with trusted reseller list.
    We could still post a couple of webshop URLs and save others some time and possibly money:

    http://www.consolesource.com
    http://www.gameyeeeah.com
    http://www.foundmy.com
    http://modchipstore.com

    I ordered a M3 simpy from http://kicktrading.ca/ on Sunday and it arrived today. Great site and service. My M3 arrived without a dent on the box.

    ConsoleSource support sucks. After creating a ticket yesterday I didn`t get a reply in 24h, despite ticket being marked as `high priority`.

    So I decided to cancel my order and get a refund. I`d imagine they react instantly to cancellations. Not quite. Couple of hours passed, nothing happened.
    Won`t be shopping there again.

    I guess I`ll get M3 from modchipstore. Just preordered a WiiKey from them, everything went without a hitch. Plus I won`t have to wait 20 days for M3 to arrive [​IMG]

    EDIT: Just after posting I received an e-mail from consolesource that my order was processed. Seriously.

    Realhotstuff gave me a great experience... almost sexual. Actually, no. But they did ship really fast AND the 5% discount really helped seal-the-deal.

    I bought my M3 DS Simply from the GP2X Store and everything went very smoothly. The Priority Mail shipping charge was cheap and it got here really fast. I would definitely buy from those guys again. www.gp2xstore.com
