Changing default send-to addresses for new book purchases
Like many of you here, I already own a Kindle 2 and have ordered a Kindle 3. Until the new one arrives, I'm still using the 2. But when the 3 is here, how do I change the settings on Amazon.com to default to sending a book to the 3? I don't want to buy a book via one-click, then wonder why the book never showed up on the Kindle, only to realize that I sent it to the 2 by mistake.
How do you change this setting? I don't see an obvious way in the Manage pages.
(Too bad you can't auto-send a new download to more than one Kindle by default, but oh well!)

The drop-down list is in alphabetical order. Make the new Kindle's name such that it sorts first.

When you have more than one Kindle on your account, there is a drop-down box and you can choose which Kindle you want to send something to when buying. If you look at your Manage Your Kindle page, your new K3 is probably already there and named something like "Buran's Kindle #2". You can rename your Kindles and use symbol characters such as a space, *, #, etc. to force the newest one to the top. All such characters are higher in the sort order than the letter "a".
Even if you ordered something and it got sent to the wrong Kindle by mistake, it will also show up on the other Kindle under your Archive. Provided that you have wireless on and are connected, clicking on the title in the Archive will download it to that Kindle. Or you can always just resend it to the other Kindle in Manage Your Kindle since any Kindles on the account can read any other books in the account.
