Is there a way to get rid of this annoyance?

I use calibre to send news to my kindle every morning via the wifi (name@free.kindle.com). Works perfectly with one thing I can not stand. The notifications that amazon sends you stating there is a document waiting for download on wifi. I would love it to simply not send me that notification and just download the document when i hit a hotspot or simply notify me and when it connects to a hotspot automatically remove the notice. I send 5 feeds to my kindle every day and each time I have to remove 5 notices from amazon stating that there is a document waiting on wifi (even though it has already downloaded). I get to the point of saying to myself NO DUH!!!!

It is annoying for sure but there doesn't appear to be any way to stop receiving these notifications. I know we had this question recently and no one came up with a solution - sorry!

This is one of the reasons I didn't get the 3G version. The wifi-only version does not have this 'feature'

Ah okay. Was about to post saying if the email notification is that annoying then just set up a filter to make it skip your inbox. I have the wifi-only version and didn't see any on-device notification..

We can set-up a filter like that on our Kindle.com mailbox???

If so, I'd sure like to also because it is annoying to have that message popping up on your Kindle Home Page all the time.

You can't filter out or stop the notifications on the Kindle itself. You could set up a filter to delete the ones you also get via email.

it really looks like they would at the very least auto delete the notice when the content downloads. BOO HISS TO THIS !!!!!
