Unable to download books

My niece (who lives about 900km from me) has a 3G/WiFi keyboard Kindle 4, and I decided to email her some free mobi ebooks from my computer to her Kindle.

She set up my email address as an approved email address on her Amazon account, and I emailed the ebooks to her ???@kindle.com email address.

She has just told me that she can see on her Kindle that all the books are waiting to be downloaded and her 3G is on, but it says that she has to connect to WiFi to make them download.

Why would that be?

She doesn't have a WiFi connection where she stays.

What I Read

RE: Unable to download books

She would be charged for recieving files over 3G.
I have set my charge rate to zero. I am assuming the files are bigger than the charge rate she has set.
