Question about PW 3g

Hi,
My family and I go camping a lot in areas that have no 3g. I read a ton of fan fiction and sometimes I have to retrieve the stories online because send to kindle does not load the actual story(just the link). I know that the free 3g will connect to the kindle store and cloud drive, but what else will it allow you to do? I did a search on the forum for paperwhite 3g and didn't get the information.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Penny

Via 3G, you can only use the Kindle Store, wikipedia, and the translate function. No other browsing. If you are doing the Send to Kindle correctly, it should work. You need to save the fan fiction as a file, then send that file via Send to Kindle.

Send-to-Kindle will charge you for sending over the 3G -- so it's hardly free, at least in that context.

I usually use my tablet to send the fiction.(but I read it on my pw2) Once I have the fanfiction webpage, I click share/send to kindle/ then once the send to kindle app opens I click "send." Some pages send fine. I have a few that post the title of the fiction(on my pw2) and once I click on it...I get a link to the webpage.

I will try to go more slowly and see what the problem is.

Thanks,

Penny

That is good to know. I may stick to the wifi version then.

Thanks,

It's not free, but it's very inexpensive: 15c/MB, if I recall correctly. Hardly a major expense.

In fact, downloading from the Cloud tab over 3G is free. So there's a trick: send an e-book to another Kindle reader or app, then it will be visible in the Cloud tab and can be downloaded at no cost.
