I'm not getting my downloads on Whispernet. I tried to download a sample--nothing. I plugged Kindle in, just in case, but still nothing. I've tried four times and still nothing. Is anyone else having a problem this morning?

How many bars do you have right now? I just turned on Whispernet and pressed "check for new items" and some samples downloaded pretty quickly. Did you try that?

All my bars are lit. If no one else is having a problem, I guess it's just me. I saw over at the Amazon board that someone said that sometimes happens. It may be because the boards are busy since it's Saturday. Maybe everyone is on their Sprint phones.

I'll give it a day before I panic. (I know. I can always go through my computer, but where's the fun in that?)

Edit: Very funny Vampire. I was beginning to think that.

Have you tried rebooting?

I connect to the internet via an Alltel cell phone and every-once-in-a-while it just fails to connect. After I reboot, everything's fine again. The Kindle technology is essentially the same so it may be worth a try.

We have hit and miss with cell signal out here in the piney woods of east Texas and a couple of times I had to go to my account on amazon and select the books that were in my library and tell them to send to my kindle. I know I had to do that with at least 2 titles the second or third day I had my kindle. Haven't had to do it since, but I figure it will happen again.

hehehe I love all those graphic smileys.

I was using Whispernet some this morning at work and it startled me to see my charge drop almost 50% that fast. No more WN While at work, my charger is at home and I still have a long ways to go before I can go home.

My blogs came very slow this morning...  I live in LA and everything usually downloads way fast, but this morning it took a while.
