    I received my DAGi stylus a few days ago and it actually works pretty well. It slides well and has good sensitivity and is more accurate than I expected. I don't have to press really hard like I've seen people say with other phones. The transparent pointer is a really nice touch. It is kinda finicky about the angle the stylus is resting on the screen though, which makes sense since you're pointing with a flat disc rather than an actual point. You get used to that though. The stylus is all plastic. The build quality and feel seems somewhat cheap. The part where the disc is attached seems like it could end up breaking if you're rough with it. The Pogo brand capacitive stylus (the other popular brand) seem like they're metal and built a bit better, but I've never used one. The pointing tip on those is much bigger though so you may sacrifice some accuracy. Go ahead and look them up as well. They're sold on Amazon I believe.

    The stylus works much better than your finger on certain games where precise pointing or drawing is required, such as Cestos, Space Physics and What The Doodle. It also works well for clicking small links and text when web browsing if you don't want to zoom a lot or use the d-pad. All and all though, for most other applications your finger is sufficient. I really just bought it for games. I'd recommend getting one if you think you regularly play these types of games. I wouldn't play What The Doodle or Space Physics without it.

    They have a few different models, but they're not all in stock. The company has a website, but they only sell through ebay. Compare the model numbers on the website description to the ones in the ebay list. I got model P005 which is the full size version (P5B on eBay).

    search for "dagi stylus" on youtube for some demo videos. I think there are also pogo stylus demos as well.

    I went through this when trying to get a stylus for my wife so she could use the iPod touch due to her nails.

    After trying several different brands we came to the conclusion that they all pretty much suck. :)

    I spent some time trying different metals, chip foam, etc looking for a better way. For now, she only uses the iPod when she absolutely has to.

    I guess I pay attention to random detail.

    I get crap reception. My apartment is in a basement with my outside wall & windows facing a large lake so there's no easy way to see a tower. I usually do get verizon service in my place, but it does sometimes switch to extended.
