Hi,

There is no charge if you have the docs delivered by WiFi. I don't use 3G anymore, but in the year or so that I did I only incurred one small charge of 15 cents. But that was at least two years ago.

Make sure you are using the free web address. If you use the default address you will be charged.

Use your default email address name.

[youraccountname@free.kindle.com] Remove the brackets.

You can sent your docs and books free that way, and if you want converted to kindle format.

In the subject/topic bar of your email use the word "convert"

I think that is right.

If i read this right from amazon. the free kidle email sends the documents so they have to be transfered via USB.

I was wanting to avoid this, the reason i was asking in the first place is that i am constantly wanting to add books to my kindle to be read later, and i read on another thread that everytime you plugged your kindle in it counted as a charge cycle.

i will send some books tomorrow when i get home and test it out.

Free Transfer of Personal Documents
If you would like to transfer your personal documents to your Kindle for free, you can send attachments to "name"@free.kindle.com to be converted and e-mailed to your computer at the e-mail address associated with your Amazon.co.uk account log-in. You can then transfer the document to your Kindle using your USB connection.
For example, if your Kindle e-mail address is Jay@Kindle.com, send your attachments to Jay@free.kindle.com.

I just noticed you are in the UK. The rules might be different across the pond from what they are here in the USA. Over here I use my various @kindle.com addresses to send books directly to my Kindles/devices via WiFi without charge. As long as you have a WiFi connection there is no need to use the 3G. Save the 3G for when you are away from WiFi.

I use the @free.kindle.com address in Europe and never get charged. It arrives directly on my Kindle, no need for the USB connection.

Your all correct. the free email does indeed sync straight to my kindle without using USB.

Thanks for that.

There's no need to use the Free address anymore. You just disable the Whispernet Delivery Options under Personal Documents on MYK then all Pdocs will only be available through WiFi.

I just got a non-delivery when I tried to send to my free kindle address; it worked last time I used it (though that was a little while ago). Have they deleted the free.kindle.com addresses now?


ETA: Just tried it again, and it worked this time. Must have been a glitch at their end.

It's under Personal Documents settings.

Whispernet Delivery Options

You can change document delivery options for your Kindle devices or set the maximum charge for a single personal document sent wirelessly over Whispernet to your Kindle with 3G support. Personal documents exceeding the maximum charge will not incur a fee and will only be available for delivery via Wi-Fi or USB transfer. Learn more
If you don't own a Kindle with 3G you wont have this option. WiFi Kindles don't need to worry about this.
