I am considering purchasing a Kindle Fire. I do not have Wi-Fi in my home (where I live it is not available). However, I do have a Verizon Broadband Card. I know the Kindle Fire only has a micro-usb port, so I was wondering if there is an adapter I could purchase that would allow me to connect my Broadband Card to the Kindle Fire so that I could connect it online. Has anyone tried this before? Thanks!

No. You might see about trading your Verizon broadband card for a mobile hotspot. A mobile hotspot (mifi) would allow you connect the Fire (and any other wifi device) without needing to plug anything in.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say wifi is not available where you live. Do you have a broadband internet connection in your home (cable, dsl, etc.)? If so, adding a wifi router would be the most cost-effective solution.
