Change Kindle DX time wo wireless

Hi,

Is there a way to change the Kindle DX clock manually ?
I'm using an US Kindle DX in Europe, without Whispernet.



Regards.

I have a US DX in Canada and therefore, no wireless access.

It doesn't matter. You can still adjust the clock. You just turn your wireless ON and leave it on for a few minutes.

The DX will tell you that it's unable to establish a communication, but it doesn't matter. When you look at your clock the time will have adjusted itself.

This trick used to work perfectly with my Kindle 2! But not anymore... Any idea to explain that?

could you not change your primary address to a US one and "roam" on 3G in your own countries?

Since my Kindle 2 is US only, not International, I think this option is not available...
