Has the street pass system succeeded in making you take your 3DS out with you?

I tend to use my portable gaming systems a lot when traveling. Mostly, in planes. I tend to have to do several long plane rides a year for various reasons. I've never tried to Street Pass there. Street Pass doesn't make me want to use them more.

Actually, I've never even bothered to turn on the WiFi switch. It eats more battery power when it's on. The chance of possibly getting a street pass doesn't seem worth it.

Though, now that I'm living in Japan, maybe I should. I regularly see people playing their 3DS on the train. And pretty much everyone has their WiFi switch on, so I could get their Street Pass.

In summer semester there were 3 other people in my art class who had 3DSes, so we'd bring them daily for street passes.
Spring semester, there was a street pass from a Japanese guy at my school. not sure if he's there anymore.

the only reason i take my 3ds out with me is to get a few hits, one time i was going to blue water (it's a huge shopping mall) and i took it with me, after the trip i got home and opened up my case only to see nothing, you know why there was no green light? because i forgot to turn on the wireless switch, duh! i've been kicking myself ever since, i could have got so many hits too :(

I normally take my Portable systems with me regardless. But I will admit I put Streetpass possibilities high in my mind when it comes to my 3DS.

Sadly, I haven't been getting as many Streetpasses as I would like...

Yes. I take it with me to work every day getting coins and stuff all day from probably passers by.

i always take all my portables out... (yes, even my laptop)

but then again i lug around a messenger bag, so it makes sense for me to bring out as many electronics as possible

I take it with me every day to a university and get several streetpasses every time.

I always have a portable system in my purse or backpack, but I do take the 3DS everywhere now because of street pass.
