I accidentally lost the stylus for my N900
Can anyone suggest where I can get something to replace it with (doesn't need to be genuine Nokia OEM, just something suitable to use as a stylus and preferably easy to get without needing to money ordering something online and then even more on shipping)

Any stick will do.

There was time when I used a pen with a gum-end (just like wacom pen but cheaper, simple pen).

Or I can send you my secondary n900's stylus; I never use it anyway...

Be neat if you could 3D print one! Sure others might be interested.

I was thinking exactly same thing; Any stick will do, but you need the right shape to store it snugly inna da hole-of-storage of the device.

If it doesn't matter if the stylus fits you can buy a NDS stylus.

Incredibly cheap and can be used on any resistive screen. 10 for 1 euro, including shipment. Work very well, I've bought them for my Pandora and sometimes use them on my N900 as well.

I've carved a few nxx0 styli in various forms out of deer and elk antler and I find they work wonderfully, and are more comfortable than the original plastic .
