    You would need to keep your old 3DS after you buy the new one. Once you have both, use System Transfer in the Settings application.

    The other day i thought i lost my 3ds on the bus to work and made me wonder... how to get your e shop games back if you lose your 3DS?
    Log in your account and re download them on your new 3DS?

    As Nintendo, if it was linked to a CN account then they can get them for you.

    I don't think so because then people would be sharing Club Nintendo accounts and getting free games (unless there is a limit on the account...)

    No, Nintendo can do it at special request.

    It's probably one of those 'at the discretion of whoever you are asking' type situations, like most things when it comes to asking for something in a big organisation. The first 10 people might say no, but person 11 might be more than happy to help you out.

    Just my two cents but I've had lotttttsss of things repaired (FREE) from N outside of warantee and that has been my experience also.. as algarta stated....just keep asking to you get the right person willing to help, someone with clout and compassion. You wil find them.

    I don't know, there was some guy here who asked Nintendo and they said if he couldn't work it out himself then they would move his eShop account.
