what exactly does your issue have to do with using a mifi type device on your kindle fire?

You'll get a better answer if you start a new thread instead of butting in on a 3 year old thread that has been dead for nearly a year, and has little to do with your actual issue.

I have a kindle fire and a 4G LTE jetpack from Verizon(FYI). So I had this app called Freedi youtube downloader and I had been using it for about 4 months. But as of 3 days ago it stopped working... and terminated itself. NO CLUE WHY. All of the videos and songs are I still believe on the Kindle being that the memory is still low. The app says that I have to redownload it from the appstore. But curiously all of my other apps went kaput as well. But now I can't connect to the appstore and the website screws up and tells me that " This app is not available for android at this time" I DONT HAVE AN ANDROID! Any suggestion would be appreciated... Sorry for typos... autocorrect...

I have a mi fi from Verizon, ran 2 computers, only ever used about 3 gigabytes out of 5 each month until we bought 2 Kindle Fire HD's for our 2 boys for Christmas. We would go over a few times to 7 or 9 gigabytes. I called Verizon & now pay $40 more a month for 12 gigabytes. Every since paying more for our service, every month we are going over 2- 4 Gigabytes & Paying Overage charges. I am so frustrated with the Kindle fires & Verizon, they both seem to cheat you out of money. Every so often we will download a new game on both kindles, but feel it should not be taking up that much usage. The Kindles seem to have a mind of their own & start up & download on their own, even when we shut them down. We rarely watch a you tube video, mainly check e-mails, facebook, read news, sometimes surf net to look for or buy something. My boys do play games on Kindle's but for what we pay, I feel we should get more usage for money paid.

My Kindle recognizes my phone's Verizon wireless through the FoxFi app

Amazon Kindle support just told me Kindle does not recognize the Verizon Mi Fi. I am so disappointed. I will return my Kindle Paperwhite tomorrow

I too have this problem. Does anyone have an answer?

The 4g LTE works fine with the Kindle fire but the mifi I have lets you connect to wireless but when you try to go to internet you get the amazon website and a message saying you must sign in and I stay signed into Amazon, can't access internet.

I've had a mifi device for some time. It works, mostly. I think they just tend to be flaky. Any problem people have connecting any kind of kindle to a mifi is probably NOT a Kindle problem.

@Kelly - I have a Verizon 3G/4G mifi, and all of my Kindles are able to connect to it just fine. The Staples "tech" is confused.

I took my kindle Fire to Staples and the tech says that the mifi I have is 3/4g and kindle getting confused so it doesn't allow the internet. Maybe Kindle planning a solution soon.

I have the same problem when trying to connect my two Kindle Fires to my verizon hotspot. They connect for a bit and then tell me I have to sign in to connect to the internet and get directed to the amazon website. I have worked with Kindle tech support for hours, downloaded and sent them file logs off the Kindles and still no solution. As stated in other messages, the wifi symbol has an X beside it too. I had the same problem with a Sprint broadband card hotsopt signal. Kindle has a problem with this setup and they act like it is my problem. I would never buy another Kindle for this reason and Amazon needs to use some of the Millions made from Kindle Fire sales and get this fixed.

I downloaded the Foxfire app on my Verizon android phone, synched it by bluetooth with my Kindle, and then found it would connect to my Kindle via wireless connection (so I don't know if the bluetooth connect was necessary or not). It works! Give it a try.

I have a Kindle fire HD just got it this weekend and I have a mifi hotspot card that connects to the Kindle and then tells me I have to sign in to connect to the internet and get directed to the amazon website to log in but I stay logged in to Amazon and it even shows that on the screen Frustrated because Sprint says it is not on their end and Kindle has had me do factory reset twice and I still have no internet connection. Please someone help. I see other post with same problem.

I have the same problem. I called kindle support and their suggestion was to reset the kindle to factory default. Which didn't work and I lost my saved data. I starting to think they are not compatible.

Brittany Faith -
Did you ever find a solution to your problem. I have mobile hotspot on my Galaxy S2. The first night I used it on my Kindle Fire it was fine, but the next night I could not get onto the web or download anything. Then I recieved the message about signing in to amazon. However it never would download the page completely for me to do that.

Amazon Fan,

You won't have to "sign on." When you access the internet on your Razr Maxx (and your wifi is not active) your connection is via 3G or 4G. You can see the little "4G" at the top of your screen when you're using the Verizon network. (I have a Droid Razr Maxx, too.)

Turning on "tethering" on the Razr Maxx simply creates a local wifi network that your KFHD can detect. So the internet connection then becomes "KFHD <-> wifi <-> Razr Maxx< -> 4G <-> Verizon Cellular Network.

Does that clarify it for you?

I remain unclear if that means I will have access anywhere anytime or if I have to be in the vicinity of some kind of "sign-on" hotspot you find in public places from time to time. Will I have access from anywhere where Verizon has a wireless network or only in specially designated locations (ala Brighthouse does with its "hotspots", which is not the full access of my phone)? Also, to confirm, Bluetooth is not an alternative?
