Default 3ds was stolen how do I relink it up to my nintendo network?

Alright, so my old 3ds (and the game that was in it at the time) was stolen from my bag while I was at work, I bought a 3DS XL to replace it.

I can't seem to get it to connect to my old network, is there a way I can fix this, or should I call the customer service number and see if they can fix it?

That would be my NID, since my old DS was stolen I can't exactly transfer anything over, so I'd need to reset it all up.

You can't do it without first unlinking it from your old 3DS. Since you don't have it any more you will need to contact Nintendo customer service to help you.

I think you need to file a police report and then contact Nintendo CS.
