So I bought my 3DS pre-updated (I don't have a way to update it here in my area; no WIFI) so I'm happy the store I bought it from updated it for me (FW 2.1.0-3U). I was wondering that since to avail the Ambassador freebies, you have to have accessed the eShop before Aug 12, 2011. So I checked the activity log and the store accessed the eShop for like 1 minute before sending it to me. I'm not sure if they had been able to connect it online though. Facts: Thanks!
