I emailed Amazon for advice and they told me that they could only deal with my problem by phone(!?) and as I'm somewhat phone-phobic I've decided that I shall live with the crack (lord knows I have enough of my own!). If it starts causing any performance issues at least I have the Square Trade warranty to fall back on for the next couple of years.

I got that same response. Instead, I used their "Online chat" customer service, and within 2 minutes they'd ordered a nice shiny new Kindle to head my way. And I hadn't even bought the Kindle directly from Amazon in the first place!

What I Read

RE: Current performance and condition of your K3. How is it faring?

My K3 still works as well as it did when new but it has a hairline crack on the casing at the bottom right of the screen. I'm very happy with my K3 and hope it continues to work for many many years to come.
Best wishes, Stephen Livingston.
