How to Use Kindle 1 in Canada?

Dear all, I just got kindle shipped from US to my home in Canada, but how come I cannot get connected through wireless? I know it uses amazon wireless, does it mean I cannot download from Canada? I don't get any signal.

Thanks!

Kindle 1 uses the Sprint network for it's wireless and is only available in the U.S. Currently there are no Kindles officially available in Canada. To purchase books you will have to download them to your computer then transfer them via the USB cable.

If you would like to purchase Kindle books from Amazon's U.S. Kindle store, you will need to follow the directions on the NerdGirl site to set up your account.

A couple of people on the Amazon Board were able to get a signal in Canada even though it's not release there, but they have a Kindle 2 International Version. The Kindle 1 wireless does not work anywhere outside of the States.
