    NNID Shenanigans

    Posting here because I did not see a 3DS troubleshooting subforum. With my new 3DS that I bought today, I went to link my NNID on it, only to find that because my old 3DS which I don't have anymore still has my NNID linked to it, I cannot link it to the new one. They want me to unlink the old one before I can link the new one but I can't do that because my old one now belongs to someone I do not know or have contact with. I have Googled this problem, I have called Nintendo with no actual person answering me, and I have looked at their support website up and down. No solution is in sight. Do you guys have any ideas?

    You can call them and remote unlink it? Just tell them it's broken and won't boot or something

    I tried calling again and actually got a person this time! His name is Matt. Let's all take a moment and appreciate Matt. He's a wonderful human being. So after I explained my situation to him, not only was he able to transfer the NNID link over like I wanted, but he was also able to transfer all of my downloaded purchases with it. That's like over 20 games! Only downside? I have to wait 48 hours for the process to finish before I can play it.

    Mods can delete or lock.

    That's good news! Nintendo customer support is usually extremely helpful
