No Wireless Delivery of Samples on K3 (Wifi Only)

I'm experiencing a weird problem with my K3 (WiFi only) - I'm not getting wireless delivery of samples!

I can get books and personal documents, but not samples I just spent over 20 minutes with Kindle CS and after 2 reps and 2 hard restarts, they couldn't figure what's going on. The 2nd rep finalized the call by promising to research the problem and get back to me.

I hardly sample books (and I can always use my USB cable, which is what I did 99% of the time when I had my K2) so it's not that big of a problem but still ... Also, I'm selling this Kindle to a friend who's not very computer literate and I don't want it to have any issues she may have to contend with

Anyone experiencing anything similar? Any suggestions?

That's sounds like it almost has to be an Amazon server side issue, not a problem with the devices. Maybe someone from the dev section can correct me, but I can't think of why the device would discriminate samples from other content.
If amazon can't find a solution, you could always try the Microsoft approach...turn it off then on again. Do a hard reset, remove and re-regester it to you account. Seriously, other than re-flashing the firmware there isn't all that much to try on the device side.

Thanks for the ideas; I have to de-register it soon (to pass on to the new owner) so I'll try that out then to see what happens.
