If I remember correctly, UPS Ground usually takes around 2-5 business days to deliver packages, but it's normally been around 2-3 from my personal experiences. I send packages to my girlfriend and family on a regular basis, and it's never taken more than 4 days to get to them. Depending on where you shipped your package, they should've been able to give you a tracking number. It might be somewhere on the receipt, so you may wanna give that a look.

Now, I'm not experienced when it comes to sending things in for repairs and I've only ever sent a tablet to ASUS, so I have no idea how well Nintendo goes about dealing with their repairs. From my experience with ASUS, however, it took them about 5 days to finally get around to my tablet and actually repairing it (for a cracked screen). Again, that has nothing to do with Nintendo, so they could be quicker or slower. Just thought I'd share.

If I had to take a guess, I would say that it might take them about 3 days to get your 3DS, 5-7 days to look it over and repair it, and another 3 days before getting back to you. That's just my guess, anyway.

This is something I would like to know also. My GamePad has a couple problems so I will be calling them up tomorrow. I just want it back before my birthday when I get Pikmin.
