125 views and no-one willing to try it out?

Please could some kind-hearted soul give it a try for me?

I should perhaps add that I am not planning on downloading Gigabytes via this method, the paper I download is usually about 1.4mb and I would probably do it about 3x a week when away.

The reason I don't pay for a subscription is because I wouldn't use it the rest of the year, as I can get them free when at home with wi-fi.

You can only use 3G to access Amazon and Wikipedia. Wi-Fi is required to connect to other websites. I connected to 3G, and wasn't able to access www.readerdailies.com, I turned Wi-Fi on and was able to.

Note: When using the experimental web browser, you'll only be able to access Amazon and Wikipedia using the 3G connection. Unrestricted web access is available by connecting your Kindle Paperwhite to a Wi-Fi connection.

HI Gazella, thanks for trying.

I know that is normally the case... but using the twitter/facebook workaround via the settings and social networking option does allow you to apparently.
That is why I wanted someone who knows the workaround to try it out, using the workaround.

Thanks anyway!
Ellie

I'm not aware of the social networking 'trick' you're referring to. I'd help if I did.

It didn't work for me. I got an error and a message that states that I need to turn Wi-Fi on.

This sounds rather dishonest to me. 3G data costs real money.

This.
What puzzles me is that the OP is actually surprised 125 people did not want to do something illegal and unethical.
Sure, it's not like you are putting babies on spikes. But, still wrong.
