you know how nintendo strongly recomends to keep the bar code on the back of your 3DS incase it gets stolen? i was wondering since i loose things all the time if you install the power pak+ with your 3DS and it gets stolen does that meen that it cannot be retrevied? and someone who finds it can easily ask nintendo for a new battery cover and faceplate and then sell it at game stop to make money?

so the point im trying to make is, are there ways your 3DS can be indentified by taking off the battery cover. i would love an answer please.

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade. And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

If it can be retrieved.
My husband has his DSlite stolen with a number of games and his carrying case a couple of years ago. The police said they check a few of the pawn shops but really that would be about it.
My husband spent months checking Gamestops and any other gaming store that might take it in as a trade or anything with little success.

Whoever stole it might have just kept it or sold it to someone they knew... really the code does little if they don't give it to a store or something.
I don't know if it would have worked if he had registered his DSlite with Nintendo or not. He never cared about the club nintendo thing.
I wonder how this would have worked otherwise. Are you able to report that kind of thing to Nintendo and they can watch to see if the number pops up for being repaired or refurbished or something? I don't think you can enter a barcode that's once already been entered.

It would be awesome if you could report the theft to Nintendo and they could track thieves if they go online, but I somehow doubt it.

I did once have a friend who got mugged and they stole his super old laptop that was held together by duct tape and completely worthless. The police later found it for him in a pawn shop laughably enough.

If your 3DS gets stolen, Nintendo will send Reggie to get it back. :D
