Fire Talk / How do I change the way to download pictures on email?
« on: September 30, 2012, 10:40:36 am »
I remember at 1 point, I was asked if I wanted to download pics in the email or not, because the download would be faster. I opted for "to press the button" to show pictures. The problem that I am having is that I can not download the pics when I don't have wifi. I can not find where to change this. I think it was amazon, but can not remember now, that gave the choice. I have skitmail for my AOL & Comcast. It's annoying not to be able to delete the email, & have to save it, until I get home to see the pic.

Fire Talk / Printing From the Fire Tablets?

I have been wondering if we can print from the Fire Tablets like I can from my iPad? Has anything been mentioned on this?

Fire Talk / Free Android APP to give $1.00 to use to buy MP3 question.
« on: August 06, 2012, 06:51:47 pm »
I've gotten a number of free APPS for my Fire. Some APPS say that I will get a $1.00 credit to buy MP3 music. The information states that amazon will email me to let me know that the credit has been applied. I have not gotten any email from amazon. I would like to download some music. Do I email amazon to ask them about this or do you think the $1.00 credit is there & I should get a $1.00 song & see what happens?  What would you do?

Fire Talk / MP3 -getting Playback Error
« on: July 10, 2012, 09:36:12 pm »
I have money off on the MP3's. I can not seem to be able to listen to a sample. I get Playback Error. I was able to buy a free album in the past & a free song tonight & I have both on my Fire. When I tried to buy an album using a code from amazon local, my code was accepted, so I downloaded the album/bought with 1 click. The album did not show up & no email showing purchase. My coupon expires tomorrow. What am I doing wrong?

My books stopped syncing from my kindle to my Fire. What should I do?

Fire Talk / How do I make the font size larger on AOL email?
« on: December 02, 2011, 07:20:50 pm »
I can't read my AOL email on the Fire, because it's too tiny. I thought that I had make the font larger before, but now I can not remember. Does anyone know how?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Taking hours to download my free audio book.
« on: November 30, 2011, 08:51:34 pm »
It's taking hours to download my free audio book that was a SO's deal to my kindles, KT & K3. 1st time doing this. Does it usually take so long? It's still downloading after 2-3 hours.

I got Amazon's kindle lighted cover on Wed. The light did not work. Defective. I called CS this morning before going out I had about a half hour. Well, it took over 20 min's & then I was going to have to talk to a technical CS. I told him that I would call back. He said only 5 min's. I said yes, but then I was told that we were leaving, so I hung up. I called back when I got home. After going thru the process again with the CS & then the Technical guy, I will get a replacement by the end of next month. Great! Then tonight, I see that amazon is charging my CC $1.00. I check my orders at amazon & my email. NOTHING? OMG, it could be identity thief. I make my 3 rd call to CS. After another long phone call & asking the same question numerous times, I found out that amazon charged me an authorization see if I was who I said. After asking if they do that to everyone who gets defective products, she said sometimes. I then asked more questions. The do that to people who change their CC. I never did! I told her that all they had to do was look at my account & see that I had ordered the cover to begin with. I should be charging amazon for sending me a defective cover. I had also told her during my questioning that I want to know so that I can tell the people at my kindle groups. Talk about scaring me & adding insult to injury.

<<I've edited the subject to reflect that, one way or another, the issue has been resolved.  They have agreed to credit the $1 but it likely was just an authorization that would have been removed once the cover was shipped.  Let us know if you have any more issues with this.  :)  --Betsy>>

I used to know, but I just went to Amazon to try to send a book to my 6th kindle instead of my 3rd kindle. I found nothing on my MYK page or my account. I sent a free book, but that didn't work, either. Does anyone know how to do this?

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Airprint Printers
« on: October 18, 2011, 09:21:31 pm »
Which Airprint Printers are you using to print from your iPad, ithing? That is on my list of things to buy.

I have not seen any mention of using the "free" in the "your name" so you don't any charges of Doc's. Do we still use the free in our kindle addy?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Which size Amazon Tablet are you going to get?
« on: June 28, 2011, 08:18:26 pm »
When Amazon let's us know that the tablets are ready to order, which size are you going to get? Are you going to get the smaller one or the larger one? I know that I am asking this question before we know all the details, but I had been thinking about this since I heard the rumors.

Friday, I canceled my Verizon Plan on my iPad, since so far, I don't need it. No problem. What I didn't expect was for it to say, "After 5 months of inactivity, you're account will be deleted from Verizon." What does that mean? Does it mean that I will have to register again & put in a new password?

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Confused about Verizon
« on: April 15, 2011, 05:41:06 pm »
I knew that my 1st month with Verizon would end tomorrow on 4/16. At the beginning of this week, I decided that I would cancel the Verizon Plan for next month. I started to do just that, but I got the message saying to the effect that I didn't need to cancel, because there was no automatic renewal, & that I would be asked 1st or something like that. Today, on 4/15, I got an email saying that my credit card is being charged for next month. I checked my credit card, & I see the charge in pending. I would have canceled, but because of the message, I didn't. I was just wondering if this happened to someone else & they were confused. Just wondering.

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / How do I reboot iPad 2 ?
« on: April 10, 2011, 04:33:17 pm »
I might need to reboot my iPad 2 Verizen, because of the recent problems that some have had when they turn the cell off. I want to turn it on tonight to check. I read, but forgot how to reboot, since I have never done it. How do I reboot? Is it holding down both the power and home button at the same time?

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Verizon - set up data plan?
« on: March 17, 2011, 02:54:22 pm »
Yesterday, I got my iPad & was setting it up & twice I got a message asking if I wanted to set up my Verizon Plan, I guess, how much data. I clicked on later. I didn't want the 3G right now. Does anyone know if Verizon is just asking for details or if I want to "buy? the month's service?

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Shipping method for iPad2?
« on: March 07, 2011, 06:24:45 pm »
I live on the east coast, New England, Ma. If anyone ordered their iPad1 on free shipping, how many days did it take to arrive? If you used free ship, was it sent by USPS? On the Apple Site, it says that you do not have to sign for it, if it's shipped by USPS. Free ship - GREAT. The only problem is that it says on the site, that the package could arrive within 6 days, which mean the following Friday. I have an appointment out of town on the following Friday, the 6th day. I'd hate to miss the mailman (USPS) arrive with my iPad2 if I am not home. What to do? Pay for 2 day ship, which means I have to wait anxiously at home to sign for the package. I always have the fear that the delivery man will not wait long enough for me to get to the door & race back to his truck. (That has happened a couple of times before.) I've never ordered from Apple's site before.

Yesterday, when I walked into BJ's, I saw the iPad. I suppressed a shreek & felt light headed. I raced up to the desk & asked, can I hold it? It was attached to cords & I didn't want someone thinking I was going to walk off with it. It did feel lighter than I thought it would feel. They were even selling the verizon hotspot little thingy. The man said that if anything was wrong with it that i would have to send in the iPad to Apple. I wasn't buying it now, anyway, as I am waiting for the iPad2. My question is, should I buy from Apple or BJ's. I asked & the man said that maybe that there is a BJ's coupon that I could use. Does anyone else know if there would be problems sending the iPad to Apple should there be a problem if I do buy from BJ's. I would have to pay sales tax no matter which place, since there is an Apple Store in my state. I will probably buy from Apple anyway, since they will have the iPads sooner & available, but just in case...BJ's or Apple?

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Should I get AppleCare insurance?
« on: February 17, 2011, 09:43:06 pm »
When I get an iPad, I was wondering if I should get the Applecare insurance? If so, how many years should i get? OR, should I get squaretrade? Should I even get insurance at all?

The Book Corner / Do you know the name of this children's book?

Prudence & Horatio are names in this book, but the name of the book & author is ....?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Confused about book license
« on: November 16, 2010, 09:01:55 pm »
I am confused. Before, I read that you will probably be able to put a book on 6 devices, & then you would have to pay for that book, if you want to download that book to a 7th device. Then, in July with the new Kindle, I did not see the number of devices mentioned on any books page, except the occasional book that says unlimited use or something like that. Now, I am wondering after reading more current info., if it means that if I were to delete the book from 1 of the 6 devices, then I am all set & I don't have to pay for the book again. Please help! 

I haven't read in bed for many years, before getting Amazon's lighted cover on my K3. One night, quite by accident, I realized that it's saved me more than once from stepping on my dog spread out in front of the doorway to my bedroom & maybe falling down. Now, I just keep the Kindle light on until I am back in bed after a bathroom visit to turn off the light & Kindle. It's much better than keeping my bathroom light on down the hall when my dog blocks the entrance or bed & I have to step over her. The bathroom light always kept me up, & it was not the best solution, but the Kindle Cover with light has.

Let's Talk Kindle! / WHY didn't my book download to my kindle?
« on: October 01, 2010, 04:43:37 pm »
I had pre-ordered a book in July. I was reading my email on my computer & saw Amazon's receipt for that book. I turned on the whyspernet on my KDXG & no download. I synced. Nothing. I got the message that there were no downloads/book/whatever. I then went to Manage My..on the computer. I saw the book listed among all the other books that are on my multiple kindles. However, I did not see the book listed under either the KDXG or my K3 to download or has already downloaded. There was no PENDING notice. I was able to download the book from there with no trouble. That's the first time that it happened, & I was wondering why that happened. Does anyone know?

I downloaded the new software on my 2nd G  iPod Touch last night. Tonight, I tried to download the iBooks App. I got it now on my laptop, but it won't sync to my iPod. I even tried the dragging the icon to my device on the laptop. More info. - I downloaded the iBooks from itunes. I then tried to do it from my iPod with no luck. How can I get the iBooks app on my ipod??

Let's Talk Kindle! / TTS after 2.5.2 update
« on: June 15, 2010, 07:55:05 pm »
Hi, Does anyone know if their TTS is not as loud as before the 2.5.2 update? I found that the previous update, 2.3.3 made my TTS louder & now it's back to what it was before. I want it to be louder.
