    I recently sent in my 3DS for repair. It was getting those scratches on the side of the screen from the lack of a proper bumper, and it had some dead pixels right in the middle of the screen. I'm not anxious or anything, as they only got it on Friday (and there was a weekend in there), but I wouldn't mind having an idea when I might see it again.

    How many of you have sent in 3DS's or any other Nintendo thing for repair or what have you? How long did it take when it got there? Will my cat ever stop licking my cheek? Why did my minecraft figurine break? All this and mo- wait, I'm getting a little carried away.

    1&2. I haven't ever sent in a 3DS, but I've heard stories of waiting 10 days or more for small repairs like yours

    Yes because you no being patient is a waste of time right?

    Anyways, I've sent a bunch of stuff to Nintendo before. It takes about a week, week and a half. Which isn't too bad considering I live a couple hours away from their Richmond HQ. But factors will also include the mail service they use to mail stuff to you.

    Took mine about a 2 weeks, and that's only because my mom put it in the wrong mailbox. So I would say a a week to 2 weeks. Also, if your cat is licking you its usually because its dirty so they try to clean it, my cat used tp be addicted to my hair till I started washing it 7 times a week, and notch cant afford to make them all out of obsidian, too dangerous with all the lava.

    That doesn't matter. We all come from different countries all around the world and the rules state quite clearly that the language to be used on this site is English and it has to be legible. If yours isn't then download a spellcheck plug-in. I understood what you wanted to say but I can see how some users may have issues in reading what you're trying to convey.

    As far as the repairs are concerned - it's the postage that takes a lot of time, not the repairs themselves. The techies are usually done within a day or two, the post can take as long as he wants to deliver your parcel.

    That wasn't the point of my post.

    My point was, whomever s/he is is being really inconsistent with their lies and obviously got caught (though the flag thing might of just been an accident, but whatever).
