Hi i have downloaded Kindle app to my phone. Now, I want to download the book from the Amazon link given. I really don't know how, since there is no link or button leading to any download or use of the book content. Thanks a lot!

My problem has nothing to do with the above situation. I can not download the book because kindle wants me to subscribe to kindle unlimited, in order to receive the book for free. I do not want to do this. I only use my credit card information when I wish to purchase a book. I am being informed that I received the book for free, and the only way I can download it seems to be by purchasing it. If you are going to provide the book for free it should be easier to download, no strings attached. Thank you.

I was having this same problem today--my phone not opening a .mobi download. Moving the file to my Kindle App folder wasn't working either. When I tapped on the file, my phone gave me the option to search for an app on the Google Play Store that could read the file. I downloaded the first eReader on the list, and it worked. So another, easier solution to this problem may be just to try a different eReader app. Hopefully that will help some of you. It certainly helped me
