I know on the 7" Kindle Fire HD website it says:
"If you're traveling with Kindle Fire HD, you can access any content you've downloaded to your device or shop for new books and magazines anytime you like.

With a U.S. credit card, you'll also be able to purchase new apps and music for Kindle Fire HD while you are abroad.

To purchase, download, or stream movies and TV shows, you must be physically present in the U.S. and have a U.S. billing address."

I have seen other posts in this forum that suggest you actually cannot download apps while overseas, even with a US credit card. Which is correct? Is the statement above suggesting that you can PURCHASE apps and music, but you cannot DOWNLOAD apps and music while overseas?

I am living in Costa Rica until May, but I have a US credit card. Before I have relatives bring me down a Fire HD for Christmas, I want to make sure that I will be able to download books, apps and music to it while in Costa Rica. I completely understand I will NOT be able to stream TV shows and movies.

Thank you!
