[NTLK] Is NewtonSales a good choice?

My advice with NewtonSales is only deal with them if you've spent a good amount of time on eBay or haven't seen anything for sale on here, then only deal with NewtonSales if you're not too worried about what you're going to get. But I have to say it was nice to get a modem and memory card, it also came with an original stylus which was good.

So don't run just think of all the options then cautiously edge towards.

I could have done something but I couldn't be bothered as I had purchased a screen protector anyway also I'm only 15 so I can't really do anything about it.
