If you have an older one Amazon Kindle with 3G internet keep in mind that you may no longer be able to access and download new content wirelessly from December. As The Verge reports, Amazon sent an email to owners with the old Kindle, telling them that previous-generation devices would lose Internet access after mobile operators switched from 2G and 3G networks to 4G and 5G.
E-commerce giants have listed certain devices that will be affected by the switch her FAQ page. It has been noticed that the first and second generation Kindles, like the Kindle DX, will not be able to connect to the internet at all because they do not have a WiFi connection to rely on. Other devices on the list are Kindle Keyboard (3rd generation), Kindle Touch (4th generation), Kindle Paperwhite (5th, 6th and 7th generation), Kindle Voyage (7th generation) and Kindle Oasis (8th generation), which all have a WiFi connection.
However, you will still be able to access your books on the older device and you will be able to make wired transfers if you wish. And if you have a newer 4G or Kindle with only WiFi, it won’t affect you. In its e-mail, Amazon included a code that users can use to get $ 50 for a new Kindle Paperwhite or Oasis, along with a $ 15 e-book credit.
