When I first got my Kindle 1 it asked me to name my kindle (which I did) now everytime I buy books it asks to which kindle account I want it downloaded to.  It's driving me crazy because sometimes I'm in a hurry and pick the wrong account and then have to log back on to the computer and resend it to the right account.  Do you think I can deactivate one of the accounts or will it mess everything up?

Yes, when I named my Kindle it didn't create a second account, just changed the name on the one I had....it sounds like you have two accounts.  You need to deregister one of them.  I would call customer service and have them help you with this.

Or, if you really have two Kindles, just make sure the one you most often send to is listed first.  So instead of naming it Zaphod Beeblebrox, name it something like *Zaphod Beeblebrox, so it'll always be listed first.

Jenjen can't use Zaphod Beeblebrox, that's what mine is called!

Nope, just one kindle. So you think I can delete one of the accounts?
It might be worth it to let Amazon know. . . . for a while they showed I had two accounts. . .one where I'd bought my Kindle and books for it and the other I'd had for the previous 10or 12 years that had all my other purchases. . .they didn't completely talk to each other and my recommendations were wonky because the one couldn't see all my purchases through the other. Once they knew it had happened they were able to merge them. . .I'd never formally set up a second account, it's just something that happened by accident when I bought my Kindle, I think. Anyway, that could be your problem. . .or something similar. . .so let them know.
