I have the similar problem as I set my location as Singapore.

But after advice from my gamestore online, I managed to fix it out.

1. Go to settings -> other settings -> profile -> region settings

2. Set to 'United States' or any other compatible region

3. Set any state or none

4. Load the eShop

5. Before the first download, you need a zipcode. Go to google and search for any tax-free state (e.g. Alaska) and simply get one zipcode. Any one will do fine.

You SHOULD be able to use the eShop now.

Hope I helped

Yeah it works, confirmed. Just like they said keep in mind it'll cause issues connecting your Credit card and paying with it so just buy Nintendo Points cards.

But they asked me for a zip code... I can't give my Australian zip code, it is not the same length.

I'll try it.

They say they want the zip code to check it against the credit card billing address zip code, but maybe they don't check it.


I used the same credit card to buy Japanese DSi points, they did not need a zip code then.

Because of the region lock, I cannot find US on the list - Only England, Russia, New Zealand ....

I have tried all of them - The eShop doesn't work at all on 7 June!!

Should the eShop all well prepared working for any region or country before having the 3DS firmware updated??

What is happen here? Why just US region works???
