As you can see, most of Western Europe is not on the list.
I havenít been able to find an equivalent page on amazon.comís website.
That list is wrong (a lot more countries than that work) and should only apply to UK Kindles (because they have a Vodafone SIM in them - unlike the US Kindles with an AT&T SIM).
