3g question

Hi,
This is likely a silly question, but if you have the 3g version paperwhite 3, do you get charged a fee to email personal documents? I wanted to get a 3g device for when we go camping, but I email documents very often and would not be happy paying fees.

Thanks,

Penny

Kindle Personal Documents Service Fees
Quote:
Amazon doesn't charge fees for delivery of documents to Fire tablets & Kindle e-readers over Wi-Fi, that are transferred via USB, or that are delivered to supported Kindle reading apps. However, there is a document processing fee for Kindle Personal Document Service if you use Whispernet on Kindle e-readers.
Whispernet = 3G

Quote:
Fees for Kindle Personal Document Service via Whispernet are based on the size of the file submitted, your country of residence, and where you're accessing Whispernet.

Users living in the United States: Kindle Personal Documents Service fee via Whispernet is $.15 per megabyte domestic and $.99 international.
Users living outside the United States: Kindle Personal Documents Service fee via Whispernet is $.99 per megabyte.

Aggregation of fees for Kindle Personal Documents Service: If you send multiple documents for conversion, consecutive orders may be combined into one transaction and appear as a single charge.

If you'd like to deliver documents to your device for free, we recommend connecting to Wi-Fi to receive your documents. If Wi-Fi is unavailable, go to Transfer Documents to Your Fire or Kindle via USB for information about USB transferring documents to your device.

e-mail documents to the Kindle?

The grayscale Kindles (which you mention) can only receive e-mail from the Amazon server.

There is no general purpose e-mail client included.
(Although there might be one available in the dev. forum, I am not sure about that.)

In your amazon account, under the option "Content and Devices" there is a "settings" area.

If you scroll down in there you find "Personal Document Settings"

And at the bottom below the list of your kindles registered is this block:
Code:
Whispernet Delivery Options

You can change document delivery options for your Kindle devices or set the maximum charge for a single personal document sent wirelessly over Whispernet to your Kindle with 3G support. Personal documents exceeding the maximum charge will not incur a fee and will only be available for delivery via Wi-Fi or USB transfer. Learn more

Whispernet Delivery Over 3G (Fees Apply)  Disabled

Maximum Charge Limit:  $ 0

Edit Whispernet Delivery
So you can set your account to $0, and the e-mail will work just like the wi-fi devices.

You can get personal documents over wi-fi, but you would be able to get paid amazon books over 3g for free still.

It's a little odd. Once the personal document is in the cloud you can download it for free.

Thus suppose you have a Fire or any Wi-Fi only device. Email the document to its magic address.

Now go to Manage Your Content and Devices and send it to your 3G Kindle.

Or archive/ cloud /on/ your 3G Kindle.

No charge.

You need to re-read the fine print.
Not everything is "free" when sent over "free 3G" only some things (like Amazon purchases).
