I was able to use my Kindle to connect to the internet and get the phone number. Now, if you have a smart phone, you’re probably not amazed by this. But I’m low tech and it “saved” the day.
My love of Kindle continues. I don’t even have Kindle Fire (yet). I have the basic 3G model Kindle. From Kindle, I also checked Facebook, Tweeted, and surfed the internet. Surfing is a little awkward because it’s not what Kindle was designed to do, but in an “emergency” it does the job.
To get onto the internet from Kindle 3G, follow these steps:
- Make sure your wireless is turned on
- Go to Menu
- Click on Experimental
- Go to Basic Web and click Launch Browser.
At times, it appeared as though the web page I was attempting to view hadn’t loaded, but I discovered that all I needed to do was press the Next Page button.
I actually used my Kindle quite a few times on this trip to get information off the internet. It made me decide that my next Kindle will probably be a Kindle Fire and my next cell phone might be a smart one.
