Will Amazon make any other carriers available other than ATT Verizon?
Will the Kindle Fire be unlockable to use other carriers?

Amazon might know. You could try asking them.

They never tell customers anything until they decide to.

I just posted this on another question:

The HDX is "unlocked". I purchased a Verizon version but was able to activate it on AT&T by switching out the sim card.

My guess is that you could put in the other carriers as long as you can get a nano sim.

net10 sim card worked great after cutting it down to nano size with scissors using guide online. $50 for unlimited (2.5gb at 4g or 3g speed) and no contract.

I'm surprised, or not - didn't know if the RF chips installed would handle both GSM and CDMA - with just a SIM card swap.
Wonder how things will work when a 4G LTE signal is not avail ?
Will it be able to fall back to the "different" types of 3G on each carrier ?

I have enough trouble getting uSD cards in and out - and now NANO ?
Just curious -
where and how do you get access to the Kindle Fire NANO card ?
