Kindle Fires Step-By-Step Guide For Users:

When you get down to it, it is relatively easy to get things started on setting up and using Amazon Kindle Fires. Here are the steps you need to follow in order to enjoy your newly bought tablet.

  1. First of all you will need to have a Wi-Fi connection to activate your Kindle Fire. When you have a wireless network already set-up, just power on the tablet and wait for the main screen to load.
  2. The Kindle Fire will automatically detect the network (or any other network) in its covered range. If the Kindle detects more than one network, all of these will be shown in its networks list.
  3. To active Internet connection through your network, you have to click on your network. Enter the network’s name and password (if there is any).
  4. You must have an Amazon account before you can proceed to the next step.
  5. To do this, go to Quick settings menu and then go to “My Account”.
  6. Here you just have to register by entering your Amazon username and password. Once you have done that, you are now registered user of Amazon and your purchase will be validated as soon as your credentials get accepted.
  7. The next step (which is another mandatory step in the activation) is setting up your payment account. You need to have a credit card. You may enter your credit’s credentials and other info by going in to the “Manage your account” tab.

Setting Up The “Sync” Option Of Kindle Fire

Now that you are done setting-up your Amazon account, you need to also do the settings for receiving updates. To do this, go to the settings menu on the top bar of your Kindle Fire. Look and choose the option “Sync”.

Once “sync” is chosen, you may now receive Kindle Fires updates. It will take a bit of time before the update is complete so in the meantime, you just have to make sure that you stay connected to the internet and at the same time make sure your Kindle Fire battery is fully charged so it will not run out when you do sync updates. This procedure is very simple to do and also comes handy at most times because the Kindle Fires firmware always gets regular updates from time to time.
