Unfortunately, the rating you gave goes on my personal record and affects my customer service score and my job. . . I am doing my very best to help you. I would appreciate not getting a negative review as this reflects my service to you. Did I misunderstand the question, is there something else I can do?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Dear Randy. (I assume that you are a person and not acomputer)

Your answers seemed ro refer to a newer version of Kindle than the one I have got, which us older than 12 months. I can read what I already have on my Kindle, but am unable to connect to Kindle store. If you are not sure I have got a hardware problem, please look further into the matter. I am sorry for my negative rating,

jon

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 2 years ago.
yes, I am a real person. I will be glad to look into this further for you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hello, Randy.

My Kindle is Model No. D00801, FCC ID: ADZ-1013, IC.: 8666A-1013.

I believe my Wi-Fi strength is sufficient.

Is there anything I can do besides buying a new one?

Regards, Jon
