Wink SIM Change Instructions

You must have shell access to the kindle to preform these steps.
You should also backup all files before you edit them!

1.) Open your Kindle and switch with your own SIM card.
2.) Open '/etc/ppp/chatscripts/att-connect' with your favorite text editor.
3.) Edit the amazon APN to your service providers APN
4.) Save and Close
5.) Move the symbolic link '/etc/resolv.conf' to '/etc/resolv.conf.bk'
6.) Copy '/var/run/resolv.conf' to '/etc/resolv.conf'
7.) Open '/etc/resolv.conf' and replace the nameserver IPs with those from your service providers.
8.) Save and Close
9.) Open '/opt/amazon/ebook/config/browser_prefs'
10.) Place a # in from of the three proxy lines.
11.) Save and Close
12.) Restart your kindle.

Im sorry theres not more detail as I am currently at work and am repeating from memory as I do not have access to my Kindle. In about 10 hours I will post more elaborate directions.
