No matter what I do, I can not set my Voyage as the default kindle on amazon, so now I have to check to make sure the book does not go to an older kindle unless it's my choice. It used to be my default kindle. I tried at Devices numerous times on both my ipads. I changed the names around so that either of the 2 older kindles was not the default by changing the names. Nothing works. I tried tonight for at least almost 2 hours. I've had to charge my kindles because of draining the batteries. I have many kindles. Alphabetical order does not work in names. Any suggestions?

Did anyone else get an email from Amazon saying that you can pay for photo storage, & if you want to pay more money per year, for all cloud storage of things like music, doc's, etc. If you have Prime, you already have photo storage?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Is Anyone Getting the new Basic Kindle 5?
« on: September 21, 2014, 07:40:50 pm »
Is anyone getting the new Basic kindle 7 & has the Basic kindle 5? If so, when you get it, can you tell me if the text is as dark on the new one than the older one. Thanks!

I received a PDF attachment in an email from someone, which is a manual with lots of pictures. On my ipad, I clicked on the attachment. It opened. I saw that I could open it with the kindle app. It worked, but then it goes away. I want it in my kindle library. I then clicked on to send the attachment to my email. Can someone walk me through how to get this attachment as an ebook on my kindle from my ipad? I have never done the Send To Kindle before & a little nervous about messing this up. I want to send this manual to the Fire & IPad. Thanks!

Let's Talk Kindle! / Feels like Twilight Zone...
« on: April 04, 2014, 03:02:39 pm »
Today, I listened to a book on my Fire. Then, before leaving home, I synced it up to my PW2 to the correct page. I took my PW1 out with me to read with. I opened up the book. It didn't sync, so having remembered basically the chapter & the correct page number. I put in the page number. I have the cell on my PW1. I started reading, but I did not remember reading about this man or the elderly lady, Jessica. (The character Jessie wrote a play, but her name in the title of the play was changed to Jenny.  So, thinking that maybe the man had a connection to the murders in the book, Lulliby by Ed McBain.) I came home & looked for these characters that I read about on my PW1. I paged through many chapters forwards & backwards. I put in the same page number. I tried X-Ray for the 1st time. Can't find the storyline! I went from page 179 to around page 109. Weird huh? Has this ever happened to you? Also, it's the only book that I have in this collection, since it's an Amazon Lending Library Book.

Fire Talk / Kindle Apps/Books not showing up
« on: January 23, 2014, 08:00:56 pm »
The other day, 2 of my apps did not show up on 1 of my Fire's HDX. Yesterday, I called Mayday. I spoke to someone who did everything & failed to fix the problem. Then, to an app tech, who could not solve solve problem. The tech put in a ticket to have the specialist look into it.

Then today, some of my books dissapeared. I figured that it was because CS had deregisterd & re-registered my device. So I looked in my Book's Tab. I did not have any of my recent books shown. The books shown were older books that I purchased. I did the reboot/ reset twice. I synced. Nothing. Yesterday, I noticed that my MYK page had changed on this kindle. I had already read about the changes here, so was not surprised. Tonight, I spent around 3 hours downloading the books from my MYK on this device. I did this from this device & it did show the current books, just not my Book's Tab. I'll have to contact Mayday again about this problem.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Fire Talk / Battery has stopped pop-uos?
« on: November 22, 2013, 07:04:14 pm »
Sorry about the misspelling in the subject line. Has anyone had pop-ups that said that the battery has stopped? It pops up twice each time that it has done this, maybe 3 or 4 times, since I got the Fire, prior update & after.

Does anyone know how to sync the photos that are on my iPhone 5 to my iPads?

I may be getting my 1st smartphone soon, hopefully the iPhone 5. Which case do you recommend?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Kindle CS - What the .....happened?
« on: May 03, 2013, 08:29:57 pm »
Okay, I have had great Kindle CS & have had incompetents.  This time, 1 problem- 2 emails & 1 long phone. calls. Problem is not only worse, but they just lost a sale from me. Here's the story. I ordered a kindle book - the monthly deal for April for $3.99 & under. I got a book on 4/30 inthe afternoon. I looke at my receipt. I was overcharged - $5.21. On book's page it said that this was the $3.99 deal, but now the price is over $7.00.

I emailed Kindle CS. I get an email back saying that my "DAILY DEAL" - wrong. CS does not know a out the monthy deals, but will give me a promotional credit. Do you want 1. To apply to a kindle book, 2. Physical item, or 3. Full refund of book/ book is removed.The email gave a link to email back. I said a kindle book.

Day 2. May 1 - I get an email from another CS Rep, saying that they checked the book. Yes it was the monthly deal, & it was a computer glitch. We will give you a $5.00 promotional discount for your trouble.

I buy a book that night. No credit.

Day 3. May 2. Thinking that I ordered too soon, I order another book in the afternoon. No credit. Last night, I call CS this time & go through the whole thing. The CS Rep said that you can not get credit on some books because of the authors/ publishers! Huh! She is now going to credit my credit card $6.00, but wait 2-3 days for the credit to appear on my Credit Card. Okay, I say.

Day 4. May 3. TODAY. I CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT! I get 2 emails from amazon saying that my 2 books - monthly deal book & the book I bought yesterday has been removed & that I will get a refund for both books for the price that I paid on my CC. What???. I never agreed to that. Why would I want to lose the monthly deal price for the book? I will not pay for the price of the book now. Amazon has lost a sale. I spent so much time on the phone yesterday, when I had very little time yesterday to waste & I thought that this problem was finally resolved. Guess not! Thanks for letting me gripe.  :o

Amazon is now selling Apple accessories/cables, etc. If you have Prime, it's free shipping. Also, maybe no sales tax.

Fire Talk / Kindle Fire HD 7" Battery
« on: February 04, 2013, 04:30:48 pm »
I have been noticing that when the battery gets down to around 30 - empty, that it goes down to the teens overnight. Why does the battery drain this quickly when it gets to the lower numbers?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Hit Buy book by Accident
« on: January 06, 2013, 10:55:44 am »
Last night, I hit "BUY" on a sample on my kindle, by accident.  I hit the cancel button immediately twice before it worked. Today, I checked. No kindle book. Good. I checked my receipt. It said Refund at the botton of the order. Good. I checked my Chase credit card. Usually I would see the amount in Pending first, but instead it shows the amount being charged. No Refund is showing. Does anyone know how long this takes? Should I call Kindle CS or my credit card or wait? If wait, how long? Thanks!

Fire Talk / Comcast email on Fire HD
« on: October 27, 2012, 05:23:42 pm »
I just got my Fire HD the other day. I have AOL & Comcast on my Fire. The AOL is loading fast, but with Comcast, I am seeing the circle thing twirling around 6 times before I can read an "individual" email. On my iPad, both load up the same. On my original Fire, it loads the same time, but without pictures/images, unless I click on the button to load pic or more of my messages. Is anyone else having this problem with Comcast?

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / Book Licences
« on: October 24, 2012, 05:52:01 pm »
I tried to put a book on my new PW, but it says that I used up the book licences. I then deleted the book from my KDXG. I thought that would do the trick, but the message says something about deregistering a kindle, then deleting the book or vice versa. I have my PW charging now, so I am waiting to check it again. Has someone here gone through this? If I deregister & then re-register the device, won't the licence still be there?
