One downside to being outside of wireless range is that you can't get the free samples. Those are only sent via Whispernet. It's certainly easy to buy books but I did miss the samples last time I was out of the country.
You can, however download free samples from the MobiPocket.com site that will work on your Kindle. Of course, MobiPocket has to sell the book you're interested in.
