I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused in this regard.
I understand your concern regarding the report on MobileRead.com.
We didn't change any policy and we don't have any comments on other websites.
However there is no need to concern, your wireless connection is free and included with your Kindle purchase. There's no confusing service plans, no contracts or commitments, and no monthly fees.
Shopping and downloading from the Kindle Store is free. So is accessing your Archived Items on Amazon.com and Kindle's Basic Web that allows you to browse and search on the Internet.
Delivery of personal documents via 3G carries a charge of $0.15 per megabyte of content you submit for conversion.
If you need any further assistance, you can always write back by visiting this link and state the problem or request a call from us, we will help you right away.
We appreciate your understanding and we look forward to seeing you again
Thank you for your inquiry.
I don't think I'm entitled to unlimited 3g for paying my extra $50 but I also do not appreciate being penalized because of a smacktards on the internet. Want to punish someone? Punish them, turn off the 3g access for those units using the hack to share the 3g connection.
Yeah, this issue/scare has come up a few times in the last ~2 years, and so far, it has always turned out to be a confusion about US usage vs outside. Someone finds the rules about outside the US and thinks it's new and now applies to the US.
Who knows, but seems likely when the Amazon rep says nothing has changed.
Thanks for posting the reply for us.
