Yes. If all else fails, you can always download something to your computer and then transfer it to your Kindle.

SOURCE: How to set shortcut or hotkey in amazon Kindle

Hey there
I think you might find this one useful
● Home button (bottom row of keyboard) – Return to Home menu
● Shift Alt R – Reboot the Kindle
● Shift Alt . (period) – Restart just the GUI (graphical user interface)
● Shift Alt G – Grab a screenshot. Screenshots can only be stored on an SD card. A .gif image file will be saved to the SD card.

● Shift SYM – Start a demo. Needs a special demo script on the SD card.
Home
● Shift Alt M – Play Minesweeper
● Alt Z – Rescan your Kindle for pictures
● Alt T – Show the time
● Number Keys – Jump to that page of your Home menu (1 to jump to page 1, 2 for page 2, etc.)

If your Home menu is sorted by book name or author, start typing the name or author and the Kindle will jump to it.
While you’re reading
● Alt B – Set a bookmark or clear a bookmark previously set here
● Alt T – Display the time
● Alt 0 – Enable or disable a slideshow
● Alt 1 – Start the slideshow
● Alt 2 – Stop the slidehow
● Alt Next Page / Previous Page – Go to the next (or previous) annotation, or 5% forward (or backward)

Settings
● 411 – Run a diagnostics test and display technical information about your Kindle
● 511 – Run a loopback call test
● 611 – Perform a diagnostic data service call

Font List
● J – Show or hide justification options (left or full justification)
Picture Viewer
● Shift Alt 0 – Set the current picture as your screen saver.
● F – Make the current picture full-screen

Minesweeper
● I – Move up
● J – Move left
● K – Move down
● L – Move right
● M – Mark a mine
● R – Restart with a new game
● Space – Open the current cell
● Select wheel – Move the cursor up and down
● Alt Select wheel – Move the cursor left and right
● H – Return to the Home menu

Text Input
● Alt Backspace – Clear all text typed so far
● Alt H – Move cursor left, without deleting anything
● Alt J – Move cursor right, without deleting anything

● Alt 7 – Type a , (comma)
● Alt 8 – Type a : (colon)
● Alt 9 – Type a ” (double-quote)
● Alt 0 – Type a ‘ (apostrophe)

Browser
● Alt 1 – Go to current location in Google Maps. This attempts to locate you by triangulating your location against nearby cell phone towers. Note that this doesn’t always find the correct location, and displays “NOT AVAIL, NOT AVAIL” as your location (or an incorrect address). You may be able to fix this by pressing Shift Alt R to reboot your Kindle.
● Alt 2 – Find nearby gas stations
● Alt 3 – Find nearby restaurants
● Alt 5 – Find whatever you type in nearby
● Alt D – Highlight the default item (or don’t)
● Alt Z – Draw zone (or not)

Audio Player
● Alt P – Start playing or pause playing
● Alt F – Skip to next song

Search Field
These last few commands work in the search field. You only have to type enough of the word for it to be unique (for example, @wi is enough for Wikipedia).
● @help
● @web
● @wikipedia
● @store
● @time

Some kindles are not shipped to Melbourne australia. If I buy a new kindle in an australian shop how can i have my contents transferred from my old kindle to a new one?


I recommend asking AMAZON directly, via their website, perhaps. My understanding is that they are the makers of Kindles and could likely, correctly provide the answer you seek.
Happy Kindle-ing!

    I want to buy a new kindle but am concerned about transfering my books to the new kindle.


    Two methods.
    First: A computer is required. Connect the old Kindle to the computer it should show up as a new drive. Open that drive and find the books. Transfer them to the computer. Plug in new Kindle and do the same only transfer the transferred books from the computer onto the new Kindle.
    Two: If you purchased the books from sources like Amazon, your books are saved on their cloud. Simply connect your new device and download all your books again.

    How do I access the books on my kindle from my ipad Kindle app?


    You will need to download the Kindle app ( from the App Store ) on your iPad or iPhone. You can then access your account on Amazon and probably download whatever you have on the Kindle to those devices. I have it and it works great....never went back to the Fire.

    My Kindle 3G seems to have frozen.


    Hello,
    Amazon recommends the following steps. As I'm sure you have already tried the power switch, try starting from Step #5 to do a hard reset on your Kindle.

    Source: Amazon.com

    1. Unplug Kindle from power adapter or computer.
    2. Slide and release the power button. The LED light that surrounds the power button will display green for two seconds.
    3. Shut down Kindle by sliding and holding the power button for five seconds. The LED light will blink three times. Wait for the screen to go blank, then release the power button.
    4. Turn on the Kindle by sliding and releasing the power button.
    5. If Kindle is still not working, you can perform a hard reset by sliding and holding the power button for 15 seconds.
    6. If Kindle is still unresponsive, try charging Kindle before trying to restart the device once again.
    7. Make sure you have the latest software version available installed on your Kindle. The latest version is available here: www.amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates
    Please let me know if I can assist you further.

    Regards,
