    When I go to the area where you add FCs, it says, "Registering friends allows you to see their online status, You can also exchange short messages." How do you send messages? I can't see any option to do this.

    P.S. Here's my FC: 0860-3299-9741
    I'm too lazy to add it to my sig. [​IMG]

    I think the short messages is referring to the status update thingy.

    here's to hoping for a better messaging system next update. [​IMG]

    Is it really, or are you just hoping for it ?
    I mean, was there any official list of features to be delivered with the May update, apart from the internet browser & eShop ?

    I hope PictoChat can be made into an app in the eShop

    Guys, I had another question so instead of making a new topic, I'll just post it here.
    Sometimes, randomly, my 3DS displays 'Streetpass' on the top left corner of the bottom screen.
    Does this mean that it's found someone?
    I'm asking because when I go to Notifications, it says 'Streetpass notifications - 0'

    Naw, that just means streetpass is activated. [​IMG]
    You'll know you got a hit when there's a green circle in your notification area.

    Lol no [​IMG]
    That's just telling you StreetPass is on.
    Also, if you did exchange data via StreetPass, the LED would go green and you'd have a notification. [​IMG]

    Aww man.
    I had my hopes up because my country is a complete deadzone.
    I'll be going to Europe in June.
    Hope to find some people there. [​IMG]

    I'm not picking all that many up, either. But I DID discover an awesome way to do so.
    Enter a video game store and pass by the store's 3DS and leave. [​IMG] Works every time!

    It shouldn't show the word "streetpass" on your bottom screen. Unless you mean in the data manager, or mii plaza.

    The thing is, it does show it.
    It has a green rectangular background as well.

    He's saying it's on your top screen, in the upper left corner. Your bottom screen has icons for brightness, friends, and notifications. If you connect to an internet source, it will show a blue box with the word Internet, instead of streetpass, and if you turn the wifi switch off, it should say Disabled. This is normal, but sadly it doesn't mean you recieved a streetpass, and I know how hard it can be to get one. Trust me, when you get a streetpass, you'll know.

    This is always the case! The representatives get TOLD nothing about Nintendo's plans, which isn't really that great for the consumers asking questions. Nothing told = Nothing to pass on. I reckon at least give them a crash course on the bare basics of shit that needs knowing, that way they can be of some help rather than making the representatives look stupid when asked technical questions. Sometimes I hate Nintendo.
