    Some dudes thought it would be funny if the blocked my 3DS with parental controls. Unfortunately, I'm 13 and my voice hasn't changed yet, so Nintendo would reject my call. I need to guess a 4-digit pin here. I could only find the top 20 in popularity, but none more. I need like the top 1,000 at least. Can anyone provide a link to such a resource?

    Maybe ask your parents to call Nintendo to reset the PIN for you? I think I did that once when I forgot the PIN I use to keep my sister outta my 3DS.

    My parents don't WANT me on, either...

    But I'm too old to be restricted from the Internet. There are 3 year olds with smartphones. My parents won't budge. They act like I'm six and think I'll do something stupid...

    I'm just trying to do my ELA homework!:hateit:

    I'd suggest trying 1234, 4321 and 0000 first.

    The top 20 don't work.

    3dsexplorer has a pin calculator that usually works (if your enquiry number has 8 digits)

    Any system can have any key. A tool to unlock it just seems silly. It doesn't make much sense. Have your parents call them and get the master key. Unlock it, and have the parental controls set up again by you. Set it up so no one can do this again.

    If memory serves, those PIN tools no longer work - to unlock your system, you now have to go online and pay a small fee to get the system unlocked.

    However, if you're on an older firmware, you're not completely out of luck, those PIN tools will still work. I'm not sure which firmware they changed this on though.

    That's what I thought. But I wasn't sure that the tools for 50 cents was real or not. I didn't bother looking it up. Good to see Nintendo cares somewhat.

    Yeah. It's a double-edged sword though, especially in this case.

    OP: If you do get the chance and have some spare change on you, if you can get your hands on a pre-paid Visa from most shops, you can register it online and use it with their tool. Your parents will never know that you used it:

    As long as kids don't abuse this, ( I'm sure they will/do.) everything should be fine. But these days, what can a kid do on their system that is so bad? Play that residents evil game? That's probably the most maturely advanced game in the library of 3DS games to date. I guess they could abuse the browser... But that's something most people don't even think about.

    You are 13. I am 16. My life is severely restricted.
    So you can't exactly complain.

    Also I had a similar situation before and the pin was 0852 :P

    You can browse the internet and play games on almost any device nowadays.
    I'm gonna assume they're not very technologically competent lol
    What do they think you'll do anyway?

    Visa cards have fees, though.
    My money is in my bank account, I don't know how to get to it without my parents
    Brute forcing sounds good, but I need a good database of the most popular pin#'s.
