Kindle DX Frequently Asked Questions
I already have a Kindle, and now I want to trade it in for a Kindle DX. Do you have an trade-in program?
No, we aren’t offering an trade-in program for Kindle DX.
If you ordered a Kindle in the last 30 days, you’re welcome to return the Kindle for a refund and order a Kindle DX.
I already have a Kindle–how do I transfer my books and subscriptions to Kindle DX?
We store all your purchases–including annotations and the last page read in each book–on Amazon.com. You can access your books and other content from multiple Kindles, including Kindle DX, as long as the Kindles are registered to the same account. You can transfer books and subscriptions from one Kindle to another in three ways:
1. Schedule delivery of books from your computer to your Kindle DX: Visit the Manage Your Kindle page and scroll down to the “Your orders and individual charges” section. Select the Kindle DX listed in the “Download/Send to” drop-down choices.
You can schedule delivery of your existing books before your Kindle DX even arrives. Your books will be automatically downloaded to your Kindle when you turn on the device, as long as you’re in wireless range.
2. Wirelessly download books directly from your Kindle DX: Select “Archived Items” from the Home screen or “View Archived Items” from the menu. Select the item from there.
3. Transfer a periodical subscription from one Kindle to another: From the Manage Your Kindle page, scroll down to the “Your Active Kindle subscriptions” page. Under “Deliver future editions,” select the Kindle you’d like to use for the subscription and click “Save.”
Note: Subscription content can only be delivered to one Kindle registered to your Amazon.com account. When you update your delivery settings, the next available issue and all following issues on your subscription will be delivered to the designated Kindle.
