I bought a new kindle for my wife and it registered in my name how can she register it in her name ?

Fred - She needs to deregister it and then register it again in Settings somewhere. I can't be more specific because I don't know which Kindle she has.

Is she sure she wants to have a separate account? If she does that, you two can't share your books.

Is it new, and have you tried from someplace other than your own home?

When I got my Fire not too long ago, I also had problems registering it... until I remembered that my wifi router uses MAC address filtering. Once I added the Fire's MAC address to the router I had no problem.

If you think this may be the issue you're having, you should be able to find out how to add the address to your router in the router's user manual or by contacting your ISP.

There can be only one eMail address and password per account. One account can support many Kindles and devices with the Kindle reading app installed. Each device will have a unique name. Only one account can be used per device. One device cannot access two or more accounts at one time. A device can be registered to an account, deregistered and then registered to another account.
