Changing the SIM card only won't help achieve what you want.

All internet traffic on the Kindle goes through Amazon proxy. Say you change the SIM, it's very likely you would then get no internet at all..

There are two solutions to get full browsing on your Kindle right now, without changing the sim.

1-Set your country to US in the Amazon Kindle configuration page
2-Disable the proxy on the kindle itself by editing some configuration file

I won't disclose how 2 is done ; Amazon giving us *free* internet access to some sites is a bonus that wasn't even supposed to be there in the first place. Getting around their restrictions will cost Amazon heaps of $$$ and they could pull the plug to everyone...
I prefer restricted free internet, than no internet at all
