Have you updated the firmware to the latest version? Yes, the latest version is 2.5.8, but Amazon manages "Kindle Service Update". I am not sure, but it seemed that Amazon will update "Kindle Service Update" whenever Amazon updates their security parameter.

In the past few days there's been evidence that they may have fixed the time server that's been at the root of the recent Kindle 2 / DX thinks it's 1970 and won't register / synch issues.

If you're only the latest firmware, and have installed the Kindle Services update, it might be worth while to switch on the 3G again and see if the problem has resolved for you.

I pass this on to the daughter. She is skeptical, but figures what the heck...

And.... Connection! Success! Time set properly! Device re-registered itself. Hooray!

Reporting again, daughter had 2 kindle dxs that had the problem. The main one was fixed when Amazon fixed the server and minigendo says. The backup device was not. So we grumbled, considered doing the jailbreak etc., and daughter was nervous. Last night she tried reformating the Kindle's drive, with the 'set back to device defaults' option clicked. (that's how it is in windows 7, no idea about other windows versions.) Said it had worked to fix a similar problem on a different old Kindle. once that finished she tried registering and it worked and the device is behaving perfectly now.

Holy cow! I had been on 2.5.8, but installing the latest Services Update fixed my 3G! Experimental web browser works now, but more importantly, Amazon sends me books and documents again. I had given up on 3G, considered my DX a sideloading-everything device.

Thank you so much.
