If there is a shortage of 3G kindles, then why use them for replacements? If no shortage, then why the big delay on my order?
Hmm. I think a few people got bumped up to 3G in the beginning, but I'm pretty sure they stopped free upgrades (probably when the percentage of returns got too high). I haven't seen anyone mention getting upgraded lately, just a steady stream of bad replacements. For example, I started out with a bad Wifi/SO, I got a replacement (bad) Wifi/SO.
