Did you use Calibre to convert the books? I usually convert to azw3 format for my kindle, no issues.
Convert from pdf to mobi using calibe seems like unable to convert the pdf..

Sometime.wilk tapping on the right side.. the page turn is backward.. to earlier part of the book..

I had such issue recently. It’s resolved by connecting to another network. I turned on my phone hotspot and connected to it.

Any one knows how to solve this issues

Never use.
Put it on once on PW and removed it after a few hours Lo.

Bo use ever since any more. No point also.

Do you guys use a screen protector with your PW4?

I have it on but I have been thinking of taking it off.

$10. Just smoke 1 pack of cigarettes less will do.

Any differences between US and Jap? I’m planning to buy kindle and jap version is $10 cheaper.

I thought kindle can read pdf format? still need to convert?

I had such issue recently. It’s resolved by connecting to another network. I turned on my phone hotspot and connected to it.
i tried connecting to another mobile hotspot still the same error.
but my ISP are all starhub for home broadband and mobile hotspot.

Just had mine delivered from Lazada. Thought it's gonna be easy, didn't realize need US address etc..

Read from earlier posts that some of you guys can buy Kindle Amazon books without changing to US address, without VPN. So should I follow the seller instructions to set up new account, use US address, use VPN, buy gift card, delete cc info? Or proceed using my current SG account?

Thanks..
I think no need to use US address anymore. Previously totally can't see kindle books at all with SG address so need to use VPN. But don't know when started now can see kindle books liao even with Local address. Use US address also bo hua the books usually more expensive (discount % lower) and need pay Tax .

Now I just change back to SG address so far bought more than 10 books also no issue.

But I still use gift card to buy instead of from credit card and always buy from computer instead of straight from kindle store just to be safe

Bro,

I am struggling where to buy Kindle PW for my daughter. Amazon SG or Shopee or GreekBite, etc local suppliers. Isn’t it now no longer required a US address and VPN to purchase the ebook?

Thanks

Easiest way to check is just login with your amazon account with local address and see if you can see any kindle books. If its blocked it will show title not available.

I bought both my Kindles PW 3 and PW 4 from geekbite on lazada.

Have been using local address to buy all my books from Amazon. So far no issue. Out of habit I still buy them through gift card and the Amazon website on the computer instead of through the kindle device just to be safe .

Thank you very much for your help!!!
Yes, I can see the kindle books without changing my SG account address.
Just placed an order to Geekbite on Shopee. Hope I can figure it out when I received the device later.

Thanks again

Anyone has the same issue when plugging in their kindle on windows 10, the device not being recognized?

Still charge normally but can't add books manually or safely disconnect . Last time on windows 7 no such problem.

I'm using PPW 2018 on Windows 10 and it works normally. Maybe try another port and/or another cable?

It is 189.99 , more expensive , did you choose it over others because of the screen protector and the pouch ?

Nope the pouch is crap, the material is extremely rough. I don't use screen protector on my kindle. Heard bad experience about having screen protector on kindle.

I bought my PW3 from geek bite about 2-3 years back. During that time there were not many kindle resellers. Geekbite was one of the cheapest and had the most positive feedback.

Later on I bought PW4. A lot more resllers now. Theirs wasn't the cheapest but so far my PW3 still going strong. Did a comparison with the other resellers was only about $5-$10 cheaper. So decided to just patron Geekbite again despite the slightly higher price for peace of mind.
