Folks,

Is there any way of stopping the KFHDX nannying me?

I have an unlimited data plan, and want to be able to download anything I want WHEN I want.

However when I try to download large files (especially audio books), the KFHDX comes up with the error in the title.

I find this very annoying, and was wondering if there is a way of overriding this settings somewhere?

I've been through all the menu's but I can't find it!

Right. After a lot of Google-ing, I found this:

https://android.googlesource.com/pla...es/strings.xml

Can someone who understands this confirm that it is the CARRIER (EE in my case) that specifies the download limit, and not the device?

A string further down mentions the option of having a button present that overrides the restriction, and starts the download anyway. That button is obviously not present on the KFHDX, so I guess Amazon decided that we really don't want to use 4G to download stuff... :-S

What files would need to be tweaked to enable this?

Hey there, it's really annoying and frustrating if so many people see your thread and don't answer! I know, cause I had some threads myself where i didn't get any response. So I am just stepping by to say hello and tell you that I have no idea how to help you
From what I understand though,it's an operator thing. What do the officials (your operator and Amazon) say about this?
