so i preordered my 3ds and got it at midnight and have been playing it for the past 24 hours but there is a tiny black dot on the touch screen. im pretty sure its not a dead pixel since when i move my ds around the dot moves above the display, i think its a piece of dust or dirt trapped between the touch screen and the display. the question is should i take it back and get it replaced over this small problem or just keep it and hope nothing goes wrong? nothing else seems to be wrong with it, everything ive tried so far works fine just this small problem is scaring me, i dont want my touch screen going out if its not a piece of dust

Yeah dude take It back but make sure you totally check out the next one you get before you leave the store because you might end up getting one that is even worse.

My dsi i had that i pre ordered from gamestop, had that exact same black dot that looks like as dead pixel at first but you see it move around a little when you view it at a different angle. Looked like a small pixel sized chunk was taken out of the lcd so I took it back and exchanged it same day, almost the same hour i got home and opened it up and saw it.

Actually.. everything but your Steetpass information should be available. As the actual save progress is saved on the gamecard.

It's not saved to the SD card, it's saved to the actual game cartridge.
