well you go to a store, like EB or Gamestop, and you go up to the counter all like ya.. i want to trade in my ds phat for a ds lite, and they'll be like okay you can trade in the ds phat + x$$ for the ds lite.

I dont think its worth it, and I dont think the ds phat is worth much anymore.

Keep it dude trust me it is not worth it Anymore i did it to gamestop because I liked the deal they had before it was 60$ for lite if you trade in old ds phat so it was worth it for extra battery life and light and also i used the browser a lot to check email.

I just picked a ds lite out for my birthday (i have the old blue fatty XD) I was originally going to get the white one but I went to game stop and saw how dirty the display model was and I thought that I would have problems keeping it clean. After like and hour debating I decided to get the black one...Now im pretty happy about my decision (although I havent "Gotten" it yet). Now im counting down the days till my birthday...:)

Anyways you could trade it in at either eb games or gamestop. Im not sure how much money you would get for it though...:/

OH! And i originally went to fye to get a ds lite but we got there and I said:

ME: Do you have any white ds's in stock?

CASHIER: No im sorry we dont have any white ones in stock and we only have one black one. Nintendo has stopped making the black and white ds's.

ME: O_O

So I went to gamestop and asked the cashier if they had any white ds's in stock and her said

Cashier: Yep :)

Me: The FYE Guy said they were not making any more black or white ds's is this true?

Cashier: No! Dont listen to FYE Nintendo only discontinued the coral pink one.

:) TRUE STORY

Umm... I'll wait until Nintendo announces the discontinuation of the Pink DS. I wouldn't trade it in to anyone, you won't get a good price for it.

if you have the warranty to replace the ds you could "accidentally" break it to replace it with the ds lite.:D

it also really does not matter what color

Trading in your Phatty DS probably won't be enough to get a DS Lite so bring some extra money or games you're willing to trade in. At EB you can trade-in 5 games that have a trade-in value of $8 or more for a DS Lite, that's how I got mine.

If you want to make a real impression. Go to gamestop, tell them "Hello sir, I would like to trade in my old DS" they would then follow up by saying "certainly alright well you get about 30 dollars" then you reply "30 dollars !?!?!" Punch the employee in the face and then kindly pick up your DS and sell it on ebay. I'm sure that will turn a few heads.

But the deal the have going on at Gamestop is to trade in your old phatt for $40 for a new one. Oh well. I was thinking about trading in my phatty, but i guess i will keep it for friends who wanna come over. I just have to find some dam screen protectors for the phatyy. :(

when you trade it in you have to have your ac adapter and the ds code on the back has to be visible

Does anyone know where I can get my DS phat "refurbnished" (I'm sorry, i am not good at writing big words like that) because there may be someone out there who just wants a DS for Brain Age or something like that. The store nearest to me is probably an Ebgames.

P.S. I am gonna sell it on Craigslist
