    It's not such a stupid idea!

    I bricked a 2ds, called up Nintendo and moaned loads, pleaded and generally played ignorant. They un-bricked it for me.

    What your saying is correct

    The rep will have a supervisor call you back a couple days later

    Supervisor is trained to never remove ban

    I doubt they have the ability, the thing is I remember a few people called after people got banned for hacking in Mario kart or Smash Bros, and they said Nintendo had something to read them about how it was bad, but then they got unbanned once. I am talking about original Wii btw.

    So you can make some bored tech's day by letting them scold you

    Tell them your friend hacked your switch when you weren't looking.

    Instead of pointlessly necrobumping a thread, use the report button instead.

    It's a console with it's own services and telemetry, the servers can individually tell which console is which; they don't use SSL Certs lmfao that's a bad system, why would they bother making their own telemetry services and hide them since they can just do a simple already out easy to find method, why does sony implement their own stuff, why do they pre-plan consoles and start development sometimes years before hand?; I wonder why............

    There is nothing you can do even if you phone Nintendo up. The ban that’s issued to your console is a complete automated process once it’s been applied Nintendo cannot undo it. There is not thousands of reasons as to why the system issues the ban, it revolves around the same reasons and soon as the console triggers that error the ban is then sent and it cannot be corrected but not even high staff level at Nintendo can answer as to why the ban happens. They just say sorry about that there is nothing we can do, you will have to buy a new Nintendo Switch and set your account back up on that one.

    Much better to issue a patched unit than to undo the ban from Nintendos perspective if a mistake has been made .

    I think it's because Mario picked up the phone. If it's Wario or Waluigi you'll be Fk'ed.

    Why would they unban you when the most likely scenario is you buying again another switch to go back online?

    You could make the argument that you bought it used from a pawn shop or something and that you shouldn't be punished for prior users' behaviour. But they seem set in their ways.
