Yeah, pretty much the same "intuition" here.

You had ordered the replacement in good faith, and Amazon essentially decided that it would be more economic to just let the old device "die" instead of having it returned to them.

I don't think that you have anything to fear for the *new* (=replacement) device. The old ("broken") one may, or may not, have ended up on a blacklist of "presumably unusable" devices.

In any case, I second the suggestion to just get in touch with Amazon CS, and explain what happened (you could even mention this thread. After all, it's not like you did anything illegal or against the terms of use). In the worst case, they'll say that they want the device back (but that shouldn't incur any further cost for you). In the best case, they'll say "we don't care", and you're free to do whatever you want with the device.
