    I am trying to add a friend and it keeps saying

    "you cannot use the internet registration because you are not online."

    But I am able to get into the Shop and use the browser for internet. Any ideas what is going on? I am also on the new firmware 3.0.0-6U.

    Happened to me once today, think the Nintendo servers are a bit iffy because of all the extra server load with it being Christmas and all, try turning the console and wireless on/off and trying again, that seemed to work for me.

    you know you have to wait a little until your friend card turns orange, then you can register people.
    It happens all the time, you don't need to reboot your 3ds.

    Yeah, the Friend's List is down right now. Happens every once in a while.

    I noticed it too when I was on the eShop and went to my Friend's List. Just gotta give it time.
