Register your Kindle DX to access features such as purchasing and downloading content. If you no longer have access to your Kindle DX or transferred it to another user, you should deregister your Kindle DX from your account.

To register or deregister your Kindle:

  1. If you are not already on the Home screen, press the Home button.
  2. Press the Menu button. Make sure that Whispernet is turned on.
  3. Move the 5-way down until “Settings” is underlined and press to select.
  4. Press the 5-way to select “register” or “deregister” from the Settings screen.
  5. If you’re registering Kindle DX, enter your Amazon.com user name and password (the e-mail address and password associated with your Amazon account) using the keyboard.
  6. Navigate the 5-way to select “OK” to finish the process or “Cancel” to abort.

Tip: If your Amazon user name or password contains characters not present on the Kindle DX keyboard, press the Symbol key to see a menu of additional characters. You can also register or deregister your Kindle DX on the Manage Your Kindle page.

Registering if You Don’t Have an Amazon.com Account

If you don’t already have an Amazon.com account, you can create one and register online at the Manage Your Kindle page (http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle). Here’s how:

  1. Visit the Manage Your Kindle page.
  2. On the sign-in screen, enter the e-mail address you want to use for your Amazon.com account. This e-mail address will be the one we use to send you updates about your orders.
  3. Don’t enter a password. Check the button next to “No, I am a new customer.” and then click the Sign in using our secure server button to continue.
  4. Enter your name and verify your e-mail address on the Registration screen.
  5. Enter a password for your new account and click the Continue button. We’ll ask you to enter the same password twice to make sure it is correct. (You might also want to write your login informaiton so you’ll have it later.)
  6. On the Manage Your Kindle page, enter the serial number for your Kindle DX and click the Register a new Kindle button. You’ll find Kindle‘s serial number on the outside of the box or on the Settings menu on your Kindle DX.

If you’re unable to locate Kindle‘s serial number, don’t worry. You’ve successfully created an Amazon.com account and can now register your Kindle DX wirelessly following this instructions.
