Default Spotpass

I want to send a swapnote to one of my friends, and it says it will send the next time I connect to Spotpass. I was just wondering how to connect to Spotpass exactly?

If you have an internet connection, launch the application. Select options. There should be an option to turn on spotpass.

Under the Settings, you can turn on Spotpass. After that, Spotpass will regularly send and recieve notes when your 3DS is closed.

Sometimes it takes a while for Swapnote to Spotpass on its own, so a way to have it done instantly is to select the Spotpass Delivery Check next to the Settings.

I've checked the settings, and my spotpass was on, but the note still won't send. My internet is on!

Swapnote isn't instant. It could take maybe 10-30 minutes (From my experience) for your friends to receive your message.

It just means it will send automatically the next time it sees a wifi connection that is has access to. If you are already standing in such a wifi area when you create the message, it probably only pings the internet for updates every 10-30 minutes or something so it will hold it until then to send it.
