I also would like to know about this. I just tried to buy two Kindle Fire HD tablets to send as gifts to Puerto Rico and when I tried to check out it says that the items cannot be shipped there.

No one here knows that - we are Kindle customers, not from Amazon. Amazon does not release that sort of information in advance.

And the funny thing is I keep receiving emails here in P.R. advertising the Kindle. U.S. territory, US Postal service, US federal laws apply, US citizens. Yeah, funny thing.

One problem is you can't access Amazon instant video! If you can stream Netflix video in Puerto Rico, what's happening with Amazon. Bad business strategy and they are losing a lot of business. I was ready to get a Kindle Fire but I guess I will take my business somewhere else.

Amazon is waiting for Puerto Rico to become the 51st state then maybe.

I can buy from newegg, tigerdirect, radioshack, walmart, etc, etc... all these stores ship to Puerto Rico, but amazon can't. I think amazon doesn't want our money.

Uh, no. Amazon most certainly wants your money.

What they don't have is the LEGAL rights to sell you the items you want. They can't just snap their fingers and make international copyright laws vanish.

US copyright laws are applicable in Puerto Rico.

How come you send me information by e-mail about your kindle. I was so excited, tried to buy one and you don't send them over here! Please!!! We are part of the United States also! Don't you know? Where and when is it going to be available here?

@CARMEN: We are not from Amazon here - just other Kindle customers. Have you asked them?

I get kindle ads from the the UK store and I can't buy one there eitherand i get ads for the 8.9" kindle even though I'm in France - I've learned to pretty much take everything advertised in Amazon accounts as being an advertisement for people in the continental US and ignore the ads

Yesterday I brought the kindle fire and tomorrow I'm will make a refund because I cant see any movies

Posted on Nov 24, 2012 7:41:18 PM PST
And why they put an space to post If they not resolve the problem

CBRetriever says:
the space is for commenting on kindles and discussing problems with other kindle users and for chatting and discussing books - there is a kindle help forum, but it is again for customers with an occasional Amazon rep posting there

Your telling me that "newegg, tigerdirect, radioshack, walmart , etc" made international copyright laws vanish??? If the ones I mentioned can ship to PR, Amazon can. Maybe they dont care, but I'm sure they can work a way to do it, like hundreds of shops in the world.

From Toy"R"Us online store: "...This item can be shipped to the entire United States including Alaska, Hawaii, and all U.S. territories including Puerto Rico"

Why Amazon can't?

Sure they can ship to Puerto Rico if they wanted to. But they don't have rights to sell you content there as yet so it would be pointless to sell you a device that cannot access the content.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 26, 2012 6:17:07 PM PST
Amazon does not want to ship you a device that they cannot sell you content for. Digital content from Amazon is not available currently for Puerto Rico.

Would you want Amazon to sell you a device that doesn't work for you?

I know this is a forum for customers but if the Fire can be sold and used in Hawaii then why can't it be sold and used in Puerto Rico? Both are islands far from mainland US but both are part of US.
