That's not as easy as I thought...
Ectaco support (Paul Feofanov) said me to ask their NY office.
According to Abe Khan I have to pay (at my post office) to send the unit to their office
and I also have to pay 35$ for shipping from US to France.
Combined with the fact that I ever paid 100 euros for customs... that's a very
expensive ebook reader !!! (which is not fully usable)...
it's not a very good way of looking at "early adopters"
I'm not responsible of the problem... with other company (Apple for example)
the company send you a box where you put the damaged device... and you
pay nothing because they know that it's their fault (and consummer doesn't have
to pay because of device constructor mistake.
I also would like to notice that there is in fact 3 problems that happened gradualy :
the wireless connection was always on and there was no way to swiched it off
the OS update couldn't be done
the power supply stopped to charge the unit.
In the begining of the problem I didn't want to write this publicly... but now
if a more "customer friendly" solution is not given I will go ahead...
