Sorry, Tasuki, but Nintendo Life is getting pounded today thanks to all the E3 festivities, haha — the live text, lots of new users signing up, people trying to chat and post on the forums and on the main site all at once. Everyone who was here last year knows it wasn't this bad, but between the update frenzy last night and the new Wii U today plus the fact that our userbase has grown by 50% since E3 2010, things have been pretty crazy around here yesterday and today.

Ant's doing his best to keep the place running, so we ask that you bear with us. The site should go back to normal again once E3 is over :3

did you have an open spot elsewhere in your list of games/apps, Bobpie? if you download something from the Shop, it'll go to the first open slot in the list (or, if there are no open spots available, it'll just go to the end of it like Teh-Ray mentioned).

That happened to me and a few others quite a bit with the first update iirc, back when the 3DS first hit. The only thing to do is try it again until it works. You might want to wait a while between attempts, their servers are probably getting pounded at the moment :3

guys, we don't know when. Nintendo's official word was 'the evening of June 6 Pacific time', and that's the only word there's been. even the '6:00 pm' thing is just us making a stab at what time Nintendo thinks 'evening' is, lol. patience :3

Nintendo wrote:

... both the Nintendo DSi/Nintendo DSi XL AND the Nintendo 3DS are needed to complete the transfer. This is because the transfer of data will occur via local wireless communication.

Please Note: Data cannot be transferred to another system over the Internet, using an SD Card, nor can Nintendo complete the transfer for you.

as for the 'buy-back' plan, they're supposed to go through with an entire system format before reselling your traded-in system, up to and including deleting all Shop account information. you might get lucky and they didn't delete the Shop info though, you never know — in that case, all you'd have to do is redownload everything from the Shop. you won't be able to re-copy everything over from the SD card until it's already been redownloaded to the system, that way the system knows you've already had the game downloaded before and the ones you're copying over from the SD card are yours, not someone else's — if that makes any sense. :3

whatever happens, good luck to you, Akatsuki. I get the feeling they're just going to quote that same FAQ article at you, though :(

@geek-master: what you don't realize is that your grandma might have the unlimited voice to talk with family members, and the unlimited thing very well could be an entire package — voice and text both. if that's true, it's likely that whether she has the unlimited texts or not, she pays the same price. what do you care that she has the ability to text and never uses it? it's her money, lol.

same for your parents. you think it's silly for your grandma to have texting when she doesn't use it, why look down on your parents for using pre-paid phones they got from Wal-Mart? there's no shame in that at all — if that's all they need, that's all they need.

if you're paying $57 a month after taxes for a smartphone on AT&T, you've gotta be on someone else's plan and just paying your share. I pay that much a month right now for absolute bare-bones service for myself — 200 txt messages and no internet whatsoever, screw paying for a data plan. you're right, AT&T isn't the worst out there, but only if you're part of a group or family plan.
