    I lost my stylus... it sucks. I can't play half the games effectively now.

    I ordered these http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8205

    I am keeping the white one only. If you guys want the other 3. You can mail me a dollar with a self stamped envelope inside and I will send you one.

    I believe the other color is teal, pink, and black. I might be keeping the black one. The teal and pink one are up for grabs right now. I'll pm you to confirm that you can send it or what not.

    Has this ever happened to you guys... have you ever lost your stylus =/

    You said you lost them so I don't see why you wouldn't 3 spare ones lying around.

    Two words, man: Clicky Pens. Make great improv styli (styluses?), I use them all the time. I haven't had a proper stylus in about a year lol.

    I believe that THE worst thing would be broken hinge, not lost stylus (but loosing both styli would be bad as well I guess)..I never lost any of styli I own (I have two for crimson/black, two for polar white, and for retractible I ordered from DealExtreme)..

    I lost my first two styli that came with my NDS Phat, and ended up buying a three-pack. I wouldn't like using a click-pen on my screen as in my experience it seems to scratch very badly, however, this may be different on the DS Lite. The Lite's styli feel completely different than the Phats, when they touch the screen.

    You can use almost anything as a Stylus, including a pen without it's tip exposed.

    In any case, they're easy to find, why'd you bother with going through all of that, to get them online when you can head anywhere and pick them up? o_o;

    Those styluses are great stuff! After 3 months of serious uses, it's still perfectly fine!

    And, I never lost my styluses. They just wore out in the first 3 months (Yes, I'm a very heavy stylus user).

    Mine never wear out, in fact, I'd still be using my original one from 3 years ago if it weren't for the fact that my brother has a biting addiction, and bit the tips and tops, so they don't stay in the case.

    I would never do that, stuff like that scratches screen badly, and don't say it doesn't because stylus (which is meant to be used only for touching screen) when used a lot scratches a screen..
    I'm very careful with my handhelds, and would never abuse the screens in that way.. [​IMG]

    Dude, Q-Tip! It works. Just try it [​IMG] I've been preaching this lil bit on the web for about 2 years now. Maybe I need to make an active campaign about the wonder of Q-tips on your DS screen and link it in my sig or something.....

    Maybe it does, but he said using pen without tip exposed!! This would really badly hurt the touch screen..And, I'm perfectly happy with all my styli for now....If ever happens that I loose all of them, I'll probably use Q-Tip in need..But until then, I'm sticking to the official!!
