If you left your device in seat 18a of a United flight and your name is "Jodie" please contact me to reclaim your device. Let me know on here**

You can contact amazon customer service and they will return the kindle to the rightful owner. And thank you for being such an honest person.

Best to remove your email to avoid spam bots that troll for that info. There should be a serial number that Amazon can use to notify Jodie that you have her Fire.

Good for you trying to get it back to its owner but putting your e-mail address here is a bad idea. Contacting Kindle customer service would be a better way to go, especially if Jodie doesn't happen to be a forum user.

What's the number? I tried reporting it in a live chat & they told me to give it to local authority seeing how I found this on a plane, I doubt that would be much help.

Felicia, how nice of you to post and attempt to return someone's Kindle. Is there not an address, e-mail, or phone # on the "Personal info" section of the Settings menu?--I just noticed that it's a Fire. Maybe they don't have the same menus is the other Kindle devices.

Some customer service reps are more helpful than others. Try the phone number Dittie posted during American business hours (which may not be Feb 20th since that is a holiday for some businesses).

Felicia, it is so wonderful that your taking the time to locate the owner! I lost my kk and looked and hoped for its return. I gave up after 30 days and bought a replacement. When I took my son to pt there was a notice on the counter asking if anyone had lost an electronic device. Even though I had already replaced it, I was thrilled to get it back.
let us know what happens with the Fire you found.

Felicia, "may all good angels bless you" (Dickens). I read that on my Kindle.

Yes. I agree. The world needs more Felicias. : )

Felicia, If Amazon CS cannot return it to the owner, see if she has e-mail set up on the KF? If so, you can find out her e-mail address and e-mail her. I'm sure she would be thrilled to get it back. Thank you for being such an honest person!

I found a KF as well. There is no email address. I think someone tried to reset it and then tossed it. It's in a pink case.

I don't believe Amazon helps restore lost Kindles to their owners anymore.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 21, 2012 9:00:07 AM PST
Actually, CS won't help you find the owner. There have been posts over the years where people tried to return found Kindles through CS and they were unable to do so.
