I cannot for the life of me work this out, I did search on amazon but did not see the answer.  I need to know how you can turn OFF one click buying on a kindle basic(cheap version) and a Kindle Touch. 

One is mine and the other is a patrons who doesn't want her grandkid buying books when reading on her Kindle basic.
I looked at mine and at my account and cannot seem to make it work so I;d have to enter in a password.

Not from what I can find. (I looked last year. I haven't heard they've changed it.)

You can't put ebooks in a cart, so you have to buy them by the on-click method on both the Kindles and Kindle4PC. I'd love to be able to put them in a cart first, and don't know why they don't do it that way.

I think the only thing she can do is to turn off the wifi before she hands it over, (which would save power use as well) or take her credit card off her account for the time her grandkids have it. They could accidently get freebies when the Kindle is on (and wifi is on) but they can't buy anything if she has no credit card and nothing in her gift account.

Didn't they just come out with an update for that Kindle with significant parental controls?

Yes here is an article about it.

Anne- thanks I will send her that information.  It was suggested also that I could tell her to remove the password from the wifi, so it could not connect. (grand daughter is about 7yo and knows about computers)

you can also deregister the kindle then reregister it when the kids are done.  but if they pass it back & forth a lot, it would be a hassle.
