I accidentally deleted the dictionary in my Kindle. Is there anyway to get it back?

You should be able to download it from your archives or send it from your MYK page if you only deleted if from your kindle.

Hi ! I deleted the dictionary from the MYK page. How do I retrieve it?

you're going to have to contact Customer Service for that - you permanaently deleted it and only they can replace it, so click on the Help at the top of this page, then Kindle, then click the orange Contact us button - go through the selections (just pick something if your problem isn't listed) and then choose either Chat or Call Me/Us

this is why I really advise people not to delete books - I had to repurchase a book myself when I accidently deleted it. The page jump was probably what happened to you as that's what happened to me

You don't, I am afraid*. However, I am pretty sure it will return by itself at the next software update. You might also be able to purchase and install another one.

What's your Kindle model? See if in doubt.

*) Then again, it never hurts to ask CS - perhaps they will be able to "resurrect" it for free. Click "Help" at the top of the page, then "Contact us" (or follow this link); select the nature of your problem and have them call you, or use chat.

My Dictionaries that came free were deleted when I updated my kindle. Now I can't click words in books to get meanings. Can I get them back free. They came with my kindle fire hdx. I for sure did not delete them. There were two. One was The Oxford English Dictionary. I'm not sure what the other was called but looked similar to the first. So annoyed. What can I do?

Contact Customer Service. A similar thing happened when my Kindle was updated.

I'm sure they figured this out after all, it's been almost a year since the post...
