Kindle 1, 2 & DX 3G-only updates - change

Kindle updates are now only being delivered wirelessly to those Kindles that have Wi-Fi. According to a CS rep, the downloads are bigger now than they used to be, so (presumably to cut 3G costs) they are delivered wirelessly only to WiFi customers.

What does this mean for those us without WiFi and with 3G only? We have to go the route of using USB cable.

First, check which version you have. Menu > Settings, look at the bottom of the screen. If you have anything other than the most current version, it's time to update.

Most current versions are:
Kindle 2nd Gen: Version 2.5.8
Kindle 1st Generation Version 1.2

Download your file from linked Amazon file (above) to your computer, and follow the step by step instructions.
