Anyone know where I could get one?
Any resistive screen stylus will work. For example the ones for Nintendo DS available at Best Buy. Or if you can find one from an old Palm Pilot those work too.
Tried a DS stylus and it scratched the screen ill try a stylus for a different huawei product.
if it's too "sharp" just sand the tip down. Or "mushroom" the plastic against something hot for a moment.
Do you have a screen protector? I use a ball point pen with all the ink removed, works well for me but i would not recommend it without a good screen protector. I just cut off the ink filled straw from the metal roller tip, cleaned out the left over ink from the metal tip and hot glued the tip back into the pen. Then I used it on some paper to make sure all the ink was truly gone. Works great for me. I never could get used to holding the tiny stylus that comes with touch devices.
If your looking to replace the original stylus because yours broke or lost maybe, thats another story all together. Might be a challenge.
i ordered some from ebay...$4 for 3 they are compatible with resistive touch screens...
Thanks for the replies.
There are a number of after market retractable stylii available.
Try Staples or most other good stationers/pen retailers.

You know I went to office depot looking for a stylus and the guy kind of glazed over and asked me what a stylus was. I explained to him and he said he never heard of such a thing. I asked the cashier and was told they do not sell any kind of stylus. I was kind of shocked, figured if any one carried them it would be office depot. Thats when I just made my own. Maybe i'll check out staples.
Well...there should be another option, including 3 in 1 with pen and mechanical pencil...something like this:
I used to work at staples, and they have good ones there

You gotta be sure the tip is smoth and (polished) so there is nothing to scratch the screen. I usually just grag the tip on my jeans back-n-forth for a while and then write on the screen lightly to see if something grabs. maybe a piece of soft wood, like pine, would help get it totally smooth.
If you have fairly long fingernails, there's your stylus! Bonus is, because it's attached to you, you can't lose it!
Also it's completely free, that makes it even better.
I use a nintendo ds stylus.
Full sized pen style.
Anywhere they sell ds accesories.
Hope this helps dude.
