      Yesterday I did not hear from you until I received this e-mail. All I got was advertisement for more electronic help. I got you when I keyed in Amazon kindle help from working on my Kindle.Today, my husband & I realized our WiFi had changed since I last used bought books from Amazon on my Kindle. So for now my problem was solved. However I am unhappy with yesterdays help from my Kindle/Amazon and your company. Also with the upfront $ charges before I could even know if I was in the correct spot for help. Poor rating for all 3 companies. Barbara MCDavid
