It is the only mini-PCIe shaped card in the device.
The Subscriber Information Card (SIM) also holds identifying information **of the M2M (Machine-to-Machine)** 3G account.

There is also indemnifying information in the Kindle's flash memory (that identifies the Kindle and the Wifi M2M account).
One of those things is the MAC address used by the Wifi connection.
When you see "Kindle MAC address" phrase in this forum, it refers to the one associated with the Kindle and its Wifi (the one stored in the Kindle's flash).

The system image of the 3G modem/radio is a locked, signed image. There is no changing what is in that, only what is on the SIM card.
OK, so you're calling the modem/radio module a card. I guess it is, now I think of it. But I'm getting lost with regard to the term "WiFi" because the Kindle 2 wasn't sold with WiFi. The Kindle 3 came with 3G and WiFi, but I just have 3G. The 3G card and the Sim card are paired, so how does the motherboard come into that?

Again, what do I need to change to get this to work?
