There's fee to use the Kindle with your wireless network, which, if you have it, is all you need. Amazon does plainly, almost everywhere when it references the Kindle you bought, says "wi-fi." Don't you know what that means?

It's not MY product. I am just a Kindle customer and I do not work for Amazon. I don't get paid; I just volunteer to try to HELP people who want to be helped.

Good plan! :0)

I didn't tell my kids about my Prime videos. They already took over Netflix, i don't want them interrupting my re-watching of Stargate SG-1 or the Sarah Connor Chronicles. A mom has to set limits.

Yep. My 9'r does the same when Prime videos won't load.

ETA on the Roku.

(OP's head explodes)

True, if Netflix goes down he yells, "mom, reboot the router!" Nothing will keep him from his Mighty Machines.

But he probably already knows what a router is.

I'm going to read the Fire description to my newly turned 6 year old tomorrow and see what he thinks.

Well, first they'll say, "'need' doesn't mean what you think it means," but yeah, after, they'll probably help.

Over- developed expectations on what the word "ready" means?

Honeybun, join the 21st century. All new toys require wireless internet. The good news is that you can set your house up with one tiny device. Call your cable company and say, "I need wi- fi!" They will help you.

The blaming Amazon for personal inadequacies?

I get being confused by a lot of things, and i would totally get it if this was a gift, but how do you spend 200 bucks on something and not bother to find out how it works?

Sheila (NJ) says:
I get that is what she thinks, but honestly. if she knows that little why wouldn't she ask for help before ordering it? She could have flagged down any 10 year old on the street. Besides, she probably has wifi already and doesn't know it. She has a cable modem, some come with built in wifi and even if hers didn't she could add it for a one time fee of 30 bucks. In addition, if she would just bother to tell us if she is on a desktop or a laptop we could answer her questions.

The flailing? The stomping? The flapping? Yeah.

I assume you are talking to me, but since you aren't using the reply function I guess I will never know.

You can apologize for your rudeness at any point. Oh and you are welcome for us trying to help you.

I'm assuming this happens after every holiday?

We're you talking me? In that case, thank you.

Actually (and I know I'll regret even going there), I think she thinks wireless means specifically cellular even though she's got a Kindle that doesn't connect to cellular.

Wow, who's the snarky one. I was disappointed but your just rude.

Posted on Dec 27, 2012 8:14:00 PM PST
She should just return it. Tomorrow. Unless UPS has 24- hour drop- off. In which case she should return it tonight.

Sheila (NJ) says:
I think she is still using a desktop plugged directly into her cable modem. Or someone else set everything up for her and she has no clue that her laptop needed a password the first time it logged into her network. But apparently it is Amazon's fault.

Sheila (NJ) says:
She doesn't know what wifi is. She doesn't know what a customer forum is. She thinks Ed works for Amazon because of that stupid badge. She refuses to stop her kerbitzing long enough to learn a thing or two.

Oh and she blames other people for the fact that she doesn't understand basic computer terminology.

I think that about wraps it up.

Wow, that took guts.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 8:07:49 PM PST
I'll bite. What the hell are you talking about? You just sign the damn thing onto your house wi- fi like any computer, and off you go.
