    I don't know where to buy one in your area, but I'm pretty sure you won't get it at EB-Games or Gamestop.

    Haha, wow do you really think any reputable games store like Gamestop would DARE sell a cheap product that would stop their actual retail games from selling?

    No, chances are you probably won't just find somewhere local that you can buy a flashcart. Maybe at some flea market where someone set up a shop, where they also charge far more than the online shop they bought their goods from.

    Just settle with shoptemp.com, they can ship to you easily enough and accept paypal payments.

    Agreed. I got my 1st flashcart from a shop in my town. It cost me 20GBP. I have seen the same cart on different sites online that offer it for half that, with an SD card included!

    Do the Shoptemp thing. You won't regret it!

    No, you just aren't going to find anything like that offline.
    Most likely all you'll find is some crappy R4 clones like R4i, SDHC, or Ultra.

    Seriously buy online, that's your only safe bet. You won't be charged triple the online price.

    Stay away from iSmart.
    It's stupid, it's an EZFlashVi clone that gets bricked when you play Pokemon Black and White.

    They fixed that. It should never have been an issue but they fixed that.

    You don't need a credit card. Use PayPal --> Shoptemp.

    Come on, I owned a debit card when I was like 16, maybe 15.
    There is NO WAY you're going to find a good flashcart in some store front somewhere.

    Seriously, you got parents or something right? Ask them to use $13.74 CAD on their credit card to get you an R4DS with 2GB memory, and just pay them pack.

    you can get them but you will get highly over charged, when I got my original R4, (before shoptemp was out) it cost me $40 with a 1gb sd, now a couple of weeks later I saw a site selling r4's for $15 dollars with 1gb, was pretty pissed anyway just get it from shoptemp, you'll save heaps.

    Just get an original R4 online.
    It doesn't seem good but when you use R4 Wood on it it is awesome.
    It only cost $6

    No you don't have to be 18, you can just set up paypal with your bank account.

    If you have a Wal-Mart there you could always get an online pre-paid card from them. It works as a debit card and you can order things from pretty much anywhere online and in stores and you can reload it. I bought one to order an Acekard from leetmod.com, I'm sure it'll work for you, as well.
