Hi folks,

I purchased a Kindle 3G in the US in September. I live in Germany.

The Internet worked fine in the US and in Canada, but it doesnít work in Germany or Austria (the two European countries in which Iíve tried it). The 3G symbol appears, and I can access the Kindle store, but not the Internet.

Iíve spoken with Amazon USís customer service, and they couldnít explain why it doesnít work. They told me to contact amazon.deís customer service, which informed me that only the Kindle store and Wikipedia are accessible via 3G in Germany. They also pointed me to a link from that lists the countries in which Internet surfing is possible:

As you can see, most of Western Europe is not on the list.

I havenít been able to find an equivalent page on amazon.comís website.
