I am looking for a gift that can be used for downloading and reading books, but NOT able to download apps that will allow texting or surfing the internet. Is the Paperwhite the answer?
I've read the specs on it but am a bit unclear as to what "Apps" will and will not work on this device. I've searched the forum but have not found definitive answers to these questions.
If the parental controls are set to restrict anything but books, is there anyway it can be worked around or what I've heard called "Jailbreak" it?
Am I correct in my understanding that once parental controls are set they can not be circumvented by anyone but the parent and if reset the device will not work until the parent calls Amazon?
Thank you for any and all help on this matter and patience with me!
