So, I'm planning on taking my XL with me whenever I go out. As I would like to actually use some of the features (like Streetpass etc.).
And my main query is: What does it actually do?

Say I conveniently walk past 10 people with 3DS'; what could potentially happen?

Also, do I need any form of internet? Or do I just leave the 'Wireless' turned on?

I'm after a fellow NL'ers answer, not a Jargon infested website or article, that doesn't explain anything.

Thanks in advance. ;)

You need to keep the wireless turned on and not be using DS/i software.

You need to have your 3DS in sleep mode and walk past other people with their 3DS consoles also in sleep mode to use it to share data. You also need to make sure you're not playing either a DS/DSi game while the system is in sleep mode nor Ocarina of Time 3D (both disable wireless when in use).

Say I conveniently walk past 10 people with 3DS'; what could potentially happen?

You could get up to 10 StreetPasses, assuming these other 3DS owners also have their 3DS in sleep mode with the wifi active.

Also, do I need any form of internet? Or do I just leave the 'Wireless' turned on?

Just leave the wireless turned on. There's also an option in StreetPass Mii Plaza called 'StreetPass', make sure that's set to 'On' too.

Some games have a Streetpass feature that can exchange things like high scores or best race times, but it really depends on what that game is set up to share. So, you may want to look through your game settings to find out if it uses Streetpass.
Also, you can use the the Mii's you've Streetpassed to play the games within the Miiplaza. Just a suggestion, when you collect the puzzle pieces in puzzle swap, pick up the pink/purple pieces as you can't use play coins to buy them.
If you do pick up 10 hits, remember to use them when you have a chance or you won't be able to pick up anymore hits for the day. You can check how many hits you have in the notifications box on the top tool bar.
This thread will help.

Thanks a-lot everyone, seriously. ;)
You've pretty much answered any/all questions I have.

I'll take it with me tommorow and see what happens. :)

@Sleepingmudkip - Yeah, I thought that, lol. I must be guaranteed a hit in McDonalds, surely. :D

@Link-Rova well you could potentially reach 10 people now that Nintendo started their streetpass relay thing, If you walk by a Nintendo Zone (special places like Mc Donald's, Best Buy etc.) you'll receive streetpasses from other people that walked by that Nintendo zone too and your data will be stored for the next person who walks by there.

@mamp - Really? I wasn't aware they had things like that going on. That kinda' boosts my confidence in getting some hits then. :)

@Link-Rova if you use the links in my last post, they'll help you to get the most out of the Streetpass feature in terms of the best places to get loads of Streetpass hits, relay points, and help for the Streetpass ganes.
There are other threads for specific games that use Streetpass, but you may need to look through the forum boards to find them.
