    Pretty awesome deal, and what a sweet husband. Hope you enjoy your newest Tamagotchis! Looking forward to seeing your log!

    P's vs Mix?

    Yes, you'd need an IRDA device to beam over the downloads via infrared. I myself have a Palm Treo. Relatively easy to use and inexpensive on Ebay. I think when I bought mine a few years ago, it came out to $10-15 with the device, cords, shipping, fees, etc. included.

    P's vs Mix?

    Welcome back to the hobby! Personally, I'd go with the P's. It's as you mentioned: thanks to Mr. Blinky, there are lots more things you can do now with the P's (virtual deco pierces), and it can be patched to English, if that's something you're interested in. The physical pierces themselves, unfortunately, vary greatly in prices these days, depending on how "rare" they are (Sanrio and Disney ones, for example). If I remember correctly, when they first came out, they retailed for about $15-20 each. On Ebay, the least expensive ones are still about $20 but I have seen the harder-to-find ones go for 4 or 5 times that amount. Fortunately, Mr. Blinky has made it so that you can download the pierces as a "virtual deco pierce plus" (only some are available thus far) onto your P's so you don't even need to buy the pierces. I haven't played too much with my M!x recently but from what I've seen, the gene mixing feature, while new and novel, gets tired after a while, because certain characteristics show up over and over again. Kind of defeats the purpose of getting "new" or a potential "infinite" number of mixes.
  8. Happy birthday, TamaTalk! Many more to come!

    Tamagotchi M!X - New Bandai Trademark

    I (and I daresay many others here) have purchased several times from JYW before. Friendly, very reliable, great communicator, and pretty timely shipping. Never had an issue with JYW.

  12. If you've tried all the steps, the only other tricks that come to mind are these: have you tried restarting your phone? Also, I find that having a fully-charged phone sometimes helps. Very touchy but I've found that they work for my occasionally temperamental phone. I also have a Palm Treo.
