To prevent spam, your Kindle will only receive documents from e-mail addresses you have approved on the Manage Your Kindle page. Here is how you can set up your approved e-mail list:

  1. Visit the Manage Your Kindle page.
  2. Sign in to your Amazon account.
  3. Select “Personal Document Settings” from the left hand menu.
  4. Under the heading “Approved Personal Document E-mail List” select “Add a new approved e-mail address.”
  5. Enter the e-mail address and select “Add Address.”

Currently the Kindle Fire only supports Wi-Fi to access the internet or actions that require an internet connection.  So what if you could get 3G signal on the Kindle using your smart phone?  Here’s how to do it:

(For this article I will discussing how to do this using an iPhone, but you can also do this with any smart phone hotspot)


1.  Go to Settings

2.  Tap on Personal Hotspot and turn it “On”

3.  You’ll notice a Wi-Fi Password generated by your phone on the screen.  You can use that one or personalize it by tapping on it.

4.  Go to your Kindle Wi-Fi Menu and your iPhone’s name should appear in the list of networks. (If it doesn’t appear right away wait a few seconds)

5.  You can then connect to it and use your phone’s 3G on your Kindle Fire!

If you have websites that you visit frequently or would just like easy access to a website without having to type in its address all the time, here’s how to make a bookmark on the Kindle Fire‘s Silk Browser.

1.  Open the Silk Browser and go to the page you want to bookmark

2.  Tap the “Add Bookmark” icon at the bottom right area of the screen

3.  Tap the page with the plus ( + ) sign

4.  If you’d like you can edit the name of your bookmark.  If not, you can just tap OK and you have just saved the website.

If you want to access all your bookmarks, just tap the bookmark icon at the bottom of your screen.
