How do I get latest software updates?
I have had my Kindle since the end of December. I have version 3.0.2 on my Kindle. For some reason my wife, who also bought hers at the end of December, has 3.0.3 (it came with this version from Amazon). How are software updates delivered to the Kindle? I keep my wifi off unless I am downloading a book/newspaper. Will it automatically come to my device when I turn my wifi on (when the next version is available)? Thanks

What version comes on your Kindle is just determined by when Amazon manufactured that Kindle. If your Kindle is "3.0.2 (553210206)" then it is not currently possible to upgrade to 3.0.3 and will require a new 3.0.3 update from Amazon or 3.0.4. Its a known issue.
Amazon Kindle Software Update page.
I don't believe there are any major issues with the 3.0.3 firmware and there have been several important fixes from the 3.0.2 firmware so there shouldn't be any issues in doing a manual upgrade to 3.0.3. One warning is that it is currently impossible to downgrade a Kindle as the firmware updates are actually one way patches so there is no way of reverting them and there aren't any complete firmware packages available.
