I have a kindle 3 Love it. Was curious if there will be a possible trade in program to upgrade to the fire?

No. Sell your Kindle Keyboard and buy the Tablet if that's what you want.

No. There is not a trade in program, an upgrade program or anything else, unless your Kindle is less than 30 days old. Any Kindle may be returned to Amazon for full refund within the first 30 days.

This comment is not directed at you personally TE, but I am having a difficulty understanding why people think of Amazon as a used car lot for Kindles.

I have two Kindle 3's. Love them. Not inclined to trade in things I love. Why are you?

I've ordered the Fire but not as a replacement for my K3's.

You may find that you actually want both. Your kindle keyboard is still an excellent long-form reading device. The Fire will (hopefully) be an excellent tablet, but many people find backlit devices difficult to read on for long periods, although they are great for games, movies, and browsing the internet.

That is possibly because they have a trade in program for just about every other device

TE, If you love your Kindle 3, just keep it and get the Kindle Fire if you want one. I would not be happy without my Kindle.

I have 5 different e-readers.....a Sony 700, which has a touch screen, a Sony 300, a Kindle II 3G, a Pandigital Novel, which is a colour e-reader/tablet and a Literati. I love all of them, and all of them are different and all of them do different things. I also bought an HP Touchpad, but my husband has it. Backlit devices are nice for some things, but none of them will allow reading in the sun, and backlit devices have a very short battery life....6-8 hours in most cases. I think the HP will go about 12 hours. My son's ASUS tablet gets about 15-16 hours.

I am waiting for the 10" Kindle tablet that is coming out in 2012. For me, a 7" tablet is too small to be using all the time. Given choices, I would never give up my Kindle II for a tablet, but having both is great.

Sure there is a Kindle trade-in program. It's run by the same people who take your old refrigerator in trade for a brand-new one, your old computer in trade for the latest model, your old lawnmower in trade for the fancy new one.

You could try selling it on craigslist. I think that's what I'm going to do. I got my K3 wifi for Mothers Day but I think I want the smaller kindle without the keyboard. Not a scratch on it so I'm hoping I can get enough out of it to pay for the new one.

I gave my Kindle to my daughter, I am interested in the FIRE but it says WIFI and no computer needed. Well how do you get the WIFI do you need a data package from a provider or to be tethered to ATT Sprint etc? Thanks

Sorry guys, You CAN get 80% of what you paid for your K3 (credit) if you call CS and ASK. You need to preorder the new one and then return the old one after you get the new one. Key is...Call CS and ASK for this. How do I know this?? Worked for me and worked TWICE for my nephew.

OK...for those of you who traded in your old Kindle for the new, were you able to download your previous books to the new Kindle? My understanding is that you lost them when you lost your registration.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 7, 2011 8:47:01 PM PDT
@Peeps: All your Amazon books will be in the archive list on the new Kindle when it is registered to the same account as the old one. Click on a title in the archive list to download it to the Home page. Or you can send the books to the new Kindle from the Manage Your Kindle page on the website.

What you heard was probably caused by someone not registering their new Kindle on the same account as the old one. That is not an uncommon problem which is easily fixed.
