I am seriously thinking about buying a Kindle Fire...I reside in Trinidad and Tobago...would like to know if it would work well in all the systems...

From the Product page. "Order now. Orders are prioritized on a first come, first served basis. U.S. only"
You also need a US credit card registered with the account to order anything for the Fire.

Hi, mine works fine but have been unable to download apps and videos seeing as I do not hav an US address and credit card. Seeing that I got it for reading, I don't mind. Oh, some books I purchased ended up being blank but otherwise its great.

@Felicia: on downloading e-books you received them blank? What was the resolution of that issue?

The kindle fire will work in the Caribbean but only for books, magazines, email and the web. You can open pdf, word and powerpoint documents BUT you cannot purchase apps, movies or music even if you have an international credit card with a us billing address. I wanted to download a Vevo app which was FREE and it wont allow me to because I do not have a US credit card. A slap in the face really from Amazon cause I have been a loyal customer for many years. Buy an ipad if you can afford it.

I live in Barbados and surprisingly the comic book app and the espn app can still be used but videos and music are still a no no. I also have a US address attached to my credit card but it still doesn't work. I would also like to know what ever happened with the books you bought that ended up blank. I recently borrowed a book from one of the lending libraries and it has come up blank but i can still read it in the cloud reader any solutions?

May I derail for a moment? All you Trini people - can you tell me how well in general people have taken to the Kindle and other ereaders there? Because you and Guyana belong to my prime markets!

So, just to be clear owners of the Kindle Fire that live in trinidad - If you have a US credit card with a US billing address linked to the account can you then download apps or are you still limited to books?

I live in new york but I took my kindle to trinidad when I went on vacation, and it worked great over there.

My dad bought me a kindle fire when he visited the states and brought it for me here in Trinidad. I get geographical restrcitions for EVERYTHING I try to download and its very frustrating and annoying. I feel like dumping this kindle in the bin! Please tell me there is some way around this because if there isn't I'd say using the kindle fire in Trinidad is a total disappointment and a waste of time and money.

My kindle fire`s wifi stopped working suddenly one day in March. I bought it in December 2011. Called customer service, they said they can't fix it or replace it because I live outside of the US. Also they said that the KF is not supposed to be used outside the US. They apologised nicely and said there was nothing that they could do. They can't refund me my money or fix it or replace it never mind it was only bought a little under three months ago. Now the KF doesn't even turn on. Well, what can I say? A total waste of my money!

@ R. Melville
You need to get an American visa card. They have them at Republic bank. I don't know about the other banks.

I don't know who you spoke to because that's not true.. my first one had a problem with the charger and they replaced it no problem.. as for it not coming on try holding down the power button for 20 seconds. There is a forum tor that so u could check it out. But cud you tell me more about the credit card from republic?

btw: My husband and I are African-Americans of Caribbean descent. My parents and grandparents are from Grenada, Trinidad, and Guyana via Africa and then Barbados. Of course there are plenty of Trini and other Pan-Caribbean people here in the U.S. who would love to read your book on our e-readers, especially when the lawyers among us are waiting for our cases to be called. Keep us in mind. My 2d generation kindle works fine when I'm cruising throughout the Caribbean although you may want to try using the android cell phone as a wrap around. Hope this suggestion helps.
