Amazon warns that some early Kindle devices may lose internet connection soon. In a support document, Amazon notes that devices that rely on 2G or 3G networks may soon lose their mobile connection. Affected devices include first and second generation Kindle readers as well as the second generation Kindle DX.
This change has nothing to do with Amazon, but the fact is that wireless providers are starting to cancel support for historical networks in favor of faster standards. Since these models do not have Wi-Fi capability, you will not be able to connect to the Internet after disabling older networks.
There is no set timetable for when these Kindles devices will be disconnected. Verizon said it plans to shut down its 3G network on December 31, 2022. AT&T's 3G network will disappear in February 2022, and T-Mobile is rumored to shut down in April 2022.
Amazon notes that as the network darkens, users will still be able to Enjoy the previously downloaded content. The wired transfer option will still be on the table, but that is of course a bit more problematic. In a statement sent to The Verge via email, Amazon provided the following credentials and suggestions for the event. users.
