Kindle 3.2 w/ ads question

I just bought a Kindle 3 w/ads and ive been seeing that you are able to remove the ads and add your own custom screensavers. Ive only seen it possible with version 3.2.1 and the version of my kindle is 3.2. So is possible to add these screensavers in conjunction of ads or what not.

Ace,

If you don't want to see the ads, I'd suggest that you return your Kindle and buy a non ad-supported model. You have paid $25 less for your Kindle in return for agreeing to accept the ads. Now you're saying that you're not going to stick to your side of the deal? Sorry, but that's wrong, to my mind.

I just was talking about the removal of the ads because i saw that people with 3.2.1 w/ ads had to remove them to add there own screensavers.

Didn't you know that the screensavers were the ads themselves? Addition of any custom screensavers would only minimise the amount of screentime the ads would get, thereby defeating the very purpose for which Amazon subsidised your kindle.
