    I have a new 7105t and when I go to websites they automatically think I'm in Canada anyone else have this problem? More importantly anyone know how to stop it? Some sites won't change to the US ones! Thanks!

    Welcome to Pinstack! I get the same thing when I type in www.google.com, but if you type wap.google.com you get the normal google. Weird

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Your carrier BIS is hosted on a RIM server in Waterloo. Your browsing is likely going through the same server. Those servers have Canadian IP addresses.

    Find the US specific URL for your sites.

    Don't just type www.site.com, but add the necessary domain(s): www.us.site.com. Or www.site.com/us

    I know it's hard to believe at times, but there are other countries.

    And, there is nothing wrong with being Canadian! (We brought you the BlackBerry, and the telephone and the radio, not to mention insulin and poutine.)

    Hello Anjie, welcome to pinstack.com. Not sure if this would help but one time I was getting weird sites on my BB, not sure if it was another country, and I had to change my ip address, then the problem was solved. It doesnt hurt to try, call your BB support for your carrier and have them change it. Let us know what happens.

    Thank you everyone! Nothing wrong with being Canadian but some US sites won't let you purchase from outside the country. And no matter what I put in my profile it still thinks I'm browsing from Canada

    Not sure about the others, but I did have poutine last night. It was great.
