A question about old kindle touch

someone is selling a first gen kindle touch 3g version but he got from store demo, seller said 3g is not working, i am wondering whether store staff use demo mode to disable 3g, I remember i saw a post here to de demo but can't find the post, could anyone tell me again how to change demo back to normal version
Thanks!

You've been here more than long enough to know that questions like this belong in the dev forum, to where I'm now moving it.

I am not positive but I know on some of the older kindles, the 3g was only good for a year.

No, that has never been true for any Kindle.

Kindle Touch == KUBRICK it.
Expect the 3G to work once you un-demo and register it.

Not quite that simple on an original KT.
**PLUS**
You don't know its history.

So start over, use Kubrick - it does not take very long and puts you in a known good state (if you pick the option to also wipe /var/local), with a known good (early) version of the firmware.

Hmm....
What country are you in?
AT&T wasn't the original non-usa 3g provider, the original one is long gone.

but if your in the usa, or outside of the usa and the KT is setup for AT&T
**OR**
you can re-write the SIM card . . .

Then my statement is correct, 3g will work after you run kubrick on it.
(Kubrick is a pretty smart wizard, but it doesn't know how to re-write your sim card.)

- - - -

Hey, we have already spent more time typing this conversation than it would have taken you to use kubrick on it.

Thanks for the information. I am in the USA.
Alas I cannot use Kubrick on that keyboard. It has since decided it was a puritan and drowned itself while I was reading a book. No, taking it apart and letting it dry for 3 days did not revive it.
I will remember your advice if I get a new 3g keyboard.

Yes I had a backup kindle.

No not the K3 - -
The Kindle Touch that is your original question.
Kubrick that one, then the 3g should work just fine.

That way we have an idea of what your posting about.

"Kindle Basic" is a name that refers to the bottom of the line, regardless of the model.
We write and package stuff by the model, not the price-line.

I had the k3, I have an older touch, and the kindle 4.1.2 it has the buttons.
Where do I find the prefixes?

They are based on the first four characters of the serial number.

Thank you. I now know I had the K3 until it fell in the bathtub. It showed to have 3g but it never worked. I also have the K4, K5 and the original kindle fire.
