Whispernet is not a big deal to me, obviously, since I live in AK and bought my K knowing Whispernet would not work. That said, when I read this morning that they had expanded coverage and saw that my area is now included, I had to try it out.

I get 3-4 bars, but then I get the message in the title of this post.

Would it be safe to assume that they just don't have the new areas of coverage completely up and running yet?

If you know of a contact number for the local Sprint office, you could try calling them.  They'd be bound to know more about their coverage than anyone else.

sometimes I get that message when I am visiting my hubby in SW Houston where whispernet is iffy and putting the kindle in sleep mode and waking it back up sometimes will cause it to connectl.

We don't have Sprint. I'm assuming they worked out a deal with AT&T or one of the local providers to use their network. I'll just wait a few days and try again. I just thought it was strange that it showed 3-4 signal bars, but wouldn't connect.

I just checked the coverage map again and the areas in AK and MO that were green this morning are gone.

Apparently they didn't have it ready yet.
