    Hi All,

    For some reason, when I use google (and some other sites), it thinks I'm in Canada, eventhough I'm in SC....Any idea why?

    With a blackberry all data is passed through RIM secure servers etc, RIM is from Canada thus when browsing google will think ur from Canada.

    Re: Why does it think I'm in Canada?

    I've notice that too but only when going to certain websites. For instance if I go to the bbtv website which is a canadian website and then go to google on my 8700 it will show google canada. If I go to tuneusin.com on my pearl or my 8700 it will lso display canada on the google webpage. I think that it happens when you goto certain website prior to going to google. If that makes any sense~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Haha. Canadians are pretty cool. When I was 14 I use to listen to this ska band that wrote a song about canadians. Its a good song but when I was reading this thread it popped into my head. The band is called five iron frenzy and the song is called oh canada. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: Why does it think I'm in Canada?

    If you can check it out its a good song. I work for tmobile and we have a few centers in canada and whenever I call them we start chatting. And I met this girl who wanted me to guess where she was from and every other word out of her mouth was eh so I told her that she said eh so she had to be from canada. After I said that she wanted to assure me that her dad wasn't a lumberjack and she didnt live in an igloo ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
