No I do not leave whispernet all the time. I do make sure both Kindles have wispernet on when I am going to synced a book. In fact after your post I went to check it out and most of the books I am reading on my K2 were at the right pages on K1 except for a couple of them which I synced with no problem.I could see how both books being synced to the same place could be a problem if two people were reading the same books and were at a different place in the book. I do make sure that I give enough time for the wispernet to turn on K1 and K2Trekker said:Do you leave whispernet on all the time? It may work better that way. I only turn it on when I want to download a book.
The only thing I can think is that when I turned it on, I didn't give it enough time to send the latest info to the server. But still, I don't see how K2 got synced with an earlier copy. Bizarre.
Don't know if you are answering me but you have to be in WN area, and I am not in Mexico, that's why it won't work for me. But it is a good habit to bookmark. I just discovered the back button the other day and LOVE it!luvmy4brats said:Just so you know, if you use the WhisperSync feature and it doesn't sync properly, you're supposed to be able to hit the back button and it will put you back to where you were before you did the sync.
I haven't tried this yet, but I read it yesterday. (And for the life of me, I can't find where I read it, but I'm looking)
I'll try to steal the KK back so I can test it.
My understanding is that the Whispersync gets turned on/off at my Amazon account. When I looked at it yesterday, it said it was "On for Leslie Nicoll." Sort of like a light switch. I don't think turning off "disable annotations backup" is the same as turning off the Whispersync.Ann Von Hagel said:What if your friend turns it off on hers and you leave it on for your 2 kindles?
Hmmm. That doesn't seem like a good way to do it. . . .Leslie said:My understanding is that the Whispersync gets turned on/off at my Amazon account.

Jeremy - they already have. At http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindlejeremy81 said:The point of Whispensync is so that an individual can read the same publication across a host of devices. For instance if/when Amazon releases the iPhone or other smartphone app if I leave my Kindle at home I can pick up my iPhone and read a few pages of my book and return to my Kindle at home and resume where I left off on the iPhone. Sounds like a convenient feature to me. Though it does seem like they need to come up with a a solution for multiple reader households.
Yes, but it doesn't work if you have two different people on the account and one of them has 2 kindles. If the WhisperSync feature is on and the two are reading the same book andthe person who has two wants to read on another kindle, the sync won't work without messing up where the other person is in her book.artsandhistoryfan said:Jeremy - they already have.

there is a link to 'sychronization' of your Kindles and when you click on that it gives you a choice to turn off synchronization for multiple reader accounts.
Someone said there's a way to do it on the Kindle too but I leave that for Leslie to find
At Amazon on the manageyourpage area for your Kindle acct, they put the k2's synchronization feature 'On' probably for the transfer of books if you're a K1 person who is ordering a K2 and would need the transfer capability and syncing of books for that process.
Yes, so I was actually answering the comment that there should be a way to counter this problem.luvmy4brats said:Yes, but it doesn't work if you have two different people on the account and one of them has 2 kindles.

It only really works if there's one person on the account with 2 kindles
I can't try it, since I only have 2 kindles on my account, but I suspect you could sync between just two of your kindles by using your PC.luvmy4brats said:Yes but how do you find it works when you DO want to sync between 2 kindles but not the third in the house. It seems to be an all or nothing deal. There doesn't seem to be a way to counter this problem.
