There are two phone numbers in the Kindle manual PDF. They are both currently functional, and lead to the same customer service line of a company called something like ?Theona Beta?.

Has anyone called them? Did the phone numbers work last year? How long have the numbers been functional?

Let me clarify: The numbers are not listed in any phone book. I called both, and listened to the intro message.

Nate, could you repost the numbers here? I haven't had the chance yet to dig through the leaked Kindle manual.

866-321-8851
206-266-0927

The 206 area code is of course in Seattle.
The 866 is a toll free number.

I love you guys around here. A bit sneaky but down to earth and just damned curious - in more ways than one! :)

I don't see how I'm sneaky. All the stuff I've dug up is on the net. Any journalist could have found it. I have been repeatedly surprised that I keep finding stuff no one bothered to look for.

But thank you anyway.

OMG...

The numbers in the current manual are the same as in the old one. I just realized that the phone numbers have been functional since at least the end of October, and the company name I heard wasn't "Theona Beta" but "Fiona beta". We now know that Fiona was their codeword for the Kindle.

I am so kicking myself for not having the guts to follow through on this.

LOL! Who would have thought that a female first person name would be affiliated with the Kindle Reader :o
