I've also been having this problem with my PW2. I don't like the thought of doing a complete restart but I may have to. I'm glad to know that it worked. I figured it may have been a software issue and if I waited Amazon would fix it. I'm glad to know I don't have to wait until another update is released before fixing it. Thanks for the info.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: Which Kindle devices can do text-to-speech?
« on: October 28, 2015, 05:44:23 pm »
Thanks everyone! I didn't think any of the current black and white Kindles had the capability. I had considered getting the new $49.00 Fire just to use text to speech if it works on there but now that I know it should work on my IPhone, I'll give that a try. Since I have my IPad, I really don't need a Fire.

Thanks Jen for the specific instructions to make it work on my Phone. I'll try it this evening!

I didn't know there were apps that could be downloaded to work within the Kindle app. That has me curious too. Thanks.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Which Kindle devices can do text-to-speech?
« on: October 27, 2015, 05:20:10 am »
I currently have a Paperwhite 1 and 2 plus an IPhone and IPad. I don't think Text-To-Speech works on any of these devices. Does it work successfully on all Kindle Fires and are there also Android devices it also works on? What about the Voyage?

Thanks,

Lynn M

I'm personally not excited in the changes with collections but I quickly adjusted and love my Paperwhite. The light in it is wonderful for me. That alone would make me upgrade. I'm sure whatever decision you make will be great :)

You can look on your My Kindle account on your computer and see if there are any documents pending or go on your Paperwhite and do a sync and check for new items.

I have that happen on my Kindle App on my IPad. Sometimes I use the search button on my IPad Kindle app or my Paperwhite and type in the title of the book and can find it that way.

Did you try checking your WIFI connection? I would try resending it directly from your account. I have that happen sometimes but can usually resend.

I bought my pw1 with special offers then quickly paid the $20 to have it without special offers. If I trade it in and deleted all my books and reset it to factory settings wouldn't it go back to a kindle with special offers? How then can I trade it for the pw1 without special offers?

No, I don't use a screen protector. I really like the screen just like it is. Congratulations! You're going to love your new IPad. I've had mine about a month now and still am thrilled to have it.

If you don't know, consider downloading an app called Apps Gone Free. You can open it everyday to find free apps that often only stay free for that day. I've picked up some good ones that way.

Sorry I haven't been home all day to check back in.

Here is the link for the 3G in store models but it's probably too late in the evening now.

If the link doesn't work just go to the Best Buy website and find the 3G models. They are all priced $60 off today.

Best Buy is offering a sale on Thanksgiving only on full size IPads for $60.00 off. It's online only if you buy the one without 3G. In story only if you buy with 3G.

This sale is for the IPad 4, IPad 3 and IPad 2 but not the Mini.

Although I just bought my IPad a few days ago, I went ahead and purchased one online to get more memory for only $40 more than what I paid for the one I have. I'll be returning the one I have as soon as the new one arrives.

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Re: Just got the IPad 4

Thanks for such a quick reply. I don't expect to see sales on the new IPads on Friday but am going to watch the ads. If there is a good deal I'll order the 32 GB. If not I'll wait till next week and decide if I want to exchange it.

I'm loving this Smart Cover too and found a cheaper price at Walmart today.

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Just got the IPad 4
« on: November 21, 2012, 07:24:43 pm »
I ordered the new Kindle 8.9 32GB in September and it arrived last Friday as expected. What I didn't realize was when I had my sisters IPad 2 for about 24 hours how big of an impression it had on me. I don't want to talk negatively about the new Kindles because so many are excited about theirs. But as soon as I turned it on and was staring at the huge carousel I knew it wasn't for me. I have an original Kindle Fire and thought I had gotten used to the carousel but I just didn't  want to keep seeing it.

I tried it for 24 hours but really didn't love it so I went to Best Buy to check out the IPad 4 and Mini. I absolutely fell in love with both. I bought the IPad 4 :) I went with the larger screen because I also have a Paperwhite for carrying around a lightweight reader.

I love this so much that Amazon may have lost a future Kindle customer. I love the Kindle app on my IPad and the way the pages look like they are turning instead of just sliding.

I love being able to create my own apps for all my favorite websites. I love the size of the screen and the clarity. I love the bright pink Smart Cover as well. I love the way the calendar looks on the IPad, I didn't like it on the new Kindle.

I also love the Reader Button when I'm on the Internet. There is so much more to learn about this new device :)

For some reason using ITunes is a bit confusing to me but I will keep working on figuring it out.

At this point it's tempting to sell my Kindle Fire and get the IPad Mini.

I also only got the 16 GB and am wondering if I should return it for a 32GB. Will I be sorry I didn't get more memory?

I also got the black but really loved the white color. For all you that have a white Mini or IPad is there a glare on the screen? I don't want to get a skin but if I decide to return this device to add more memory I may also switch and get the white too.

Is there a benefit ordering directly from Apple?

My 8.9" 32 GB is out for delivery. We don't usually get anything from UPS until after 5 pm in my neighborhood though. I did try Heather's trick and find the UPS man at a some local businesses this morning but no luck.  :D

Yesterday we had a delivery at about 6:42 pm so I could still have about 6 more hours of waiting to do. It's hard to concentrate on all that I'm supposed to be getting done though as my ears are always on alert for the truck anyway.

15
My new Kindle arrived in Cleveland this morning. It should be out for delivery soon  ;D

I received a UPS package yesterday that didn't arrive until 6:42 PM. Today is going to be a long day. I'm not complaining though as I feel bad for all of you that have to wait until next week.

Hopefully I'll get a lot of exercise while pacing the floor!

16
Will my current Original Fire Apps work on the new 8.9" devices or do we need to wait for them to be remade to fit a bigger screen size?

Also, even though I'm in Ohio, mine shipped from Arizona too.

17
Mine Switched to SHIPPING SOON!!!!! Now how am I supposed to get anything done.

I knew Amazon wouldn't wait till Tuesday to start shipping!!!!!

Still no serial number though.

I know you can get unlimited cloud storage with Amazon purchases but I'm not sure if it's unlimited with anything you want to upload on to it.

Best Buy is a good place to see the 7" Fire HD but the 8.9" hasn't been released so you can't go see that yet.

20
I bumped it up to one day shipping too. Since I only had to pay an extra $3.99 because I have Prime, it was well worth it to jump up 5 days in shipping.

Although I'm still holding out hope that they will be eager to make customers happy and start shipping Sunday evening or Monday.

So maybe we'll have them on Tuesday.

I don't really understand Amazon's release date anyways. I would think they wouldn't want to add so much more shipping into their busiest shipping days of the year. Why send all these tablets out 2 day and regular shipping over Thanksgiving weekend?

So maybe our serial numbers and shipping soon status will change this weekend so Amazon can get a jump on all rest of the weekend to come.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: New update for Kindle PaperWhite
« on: November 13, 2012, 04:01:43 am »
I know this is the PaperWhite thread but I also have several Kindle Keyboards registered to my account and have this message on the top of my Manage your Kindles page:

Kindle Keyboard Software Update Available
To receive the free software update for your Kindle Keyboard, please turn on wireless and remain connected to an available Wi-Fi network. The update will automatically download and install when your Kindle goes into sleep mode. Learn more

All the Keyboard Kindles on my account are 3G+Wi-Fi but in the above message Amazon still only mentions keeping Wi-Fi available to receive the update. So it is very possible that if you don't have Wi-Fi available for the PaperWhite, you will need to do the update manually.

23
Geemont, "Almost Forgot"?  ??? I can't imagine. Hopefully you will enjoy it when it arrives.

LaRita, So sorry to hear that you had to cancel your order. Hopefully your new computer is awesome. I'm sure you'll enjoy that too.


Jesslyn, what is a hand stylus? Is that different from a regular stylus?

I would like to see a few changes in the carousel, like it not automatically showing every book on my account, but I have gotten used to it. I just got the Paperwhite a few days ago and thought I would really be glad to have collections back but I realized I would rather not keeps so many books on it and just see the covers. So I guess the Carousel has influenced me in that area.

We are down to 13 days to estimated arrival date! I still hope Amazon chooses to send them out a day or two earlier so that I'm not focusing on my new Fire on Thanksgiving day. I will have to force myself to leave it at home so that I'm not focusing on a screen that whole day :)

24
I didn't realize they have allowed downloading 2 weeks before release day before.

Amazon is expert in building excitement. I couldn't possible want to return a device if it looks like mine, with my books, when I first turn it on.

But we still have 2 full weeks before expected delivery. What to do now? I should probably get a jump on holiday stuff since I won't want to do much the first few days of receiving the new Fire. Nah, off to read on my new Paperwhite :)

25
I also told myself two months ago that I would not start watching my shipping status until the day before the expected shipping date but I have looked 2 or 3 times already!

I'm going to wear a hole in the floor with all this toe-tapping  :(
