Hi, my wife has a Kindle and I have some PDF files that I have tried converting using Calibre and Mobipocket Creator. The files convert alright but when I load them on to the Kindle the font is real tiny and cannot be adjusted. Does anyone know how to get the font larger. Thanks in advance.

I have always been able to adjust the font size the same way I do on books. Maybe try sending the PDF to your email (the $.10 charge that apparently doesn't show up ever on the bill) and see if it gets converted by Amazon it will work???

Anyone know about how long it takes for them to convert the files and get them back to you?
I haven't done it, but some have said it only takes a couple minutes. And they recommend that you have your Whispernet on as soon as you email the pdf.

It's always been instant for me, I email the file, then turn whispernet on and it shows up within a few seconds.

for me it only takes a couple of minutes...usually less than 5-10 minutes. send my notes from my computer to my kindle through email (originally doc files)...by the time I get to my next class (couple minutes walk sometimes) its already on my kindle

It sounds like your PDF files may be image-based.  If that's the case, I doubt amazon's conversion will work any better than yours.  If it's not, can you select the text with the cursor and copy it to another document (like Notepad, or a Word document)?
