    Hello, has anyone called Nintendo to see if they could remove the 7 day wait limit for the system transfer? I am curious because I would like to call Nintendo to see if they could do so.

    Even if they say no, what excuse should I use?

    I'm sure there are legal reasons why there is a cooldown period which involves theft that I cant imagine right now.

    Be grateful they removed the amount of times you could transfer. Once upon a time a user was only allowed to transfer 5 times.

    Also, lets say you do a system transfer at 5:00pm, do you have to wait until 5:00pm next week to do the system transfer or is it just in the morning or midnight the week later?

    When they say a week, they mean exactly 7 days (yes, if it starts at 5:00, you can only system transfer a week after and after 5:00)

    You can't, I tried that months ago. I did a system transfer from my 2DS to a n3DS a while back (even before A9LH was a thing).
    It failed. It completed a system transfer, but none of my data was actually transfered. So, I tried calling Nintendo to see if they can remove the 7 day restriction. At best they could do a license transfer (transfer your NNID to another 3DS, but not the data) immediately; however, they were unable to do a system transfer. They said something about it being a permanent thing and something out of their control, and I was talking to a higher up in customer support.
