I live in rural Tennessee with no Whispernet service. I received my new Kindle 2 today and it was not showing that it was registered. The screen just says 'My Kindle' and it asks me to register it when I go into the settings page. But, Amazon.com shows that it IS registered. Is there something I'm supposed to do to get my Kindle to recognize that it is registered? Should I travel to a Whispernet covered area and see what happens or is there a way to register it without using the wireless service? Thanks for any info on this subject.
