Hey all,

I'm a student currently living in the UK. Been wanting to get a Kindle for a while now, but I'll move back to my home country of Mexico soon (American Amazon "territory").
I'll probably return to England on January, but if I don't... how would a Kindle bought through work in Mexico? Would the 3G be affected? Should I get wireless instead? Or should I hold off buying at all until I know with more certainty where I'll be living?

Thank you!

It would work fine, you will just have to register it to the Amazon in the country you live in ie .com. Whilst you are here you can register it to your account. If you have any worries contact customer service they are very helpful
