    Question HELP! My Blackberry thinks I am Canadian!

    Advertisement



    So I am trying to surf over to one of my favorite sites on my BB browser and all I get is an error message because they are blocking Canadian traffic, I am near Chicago, not Canada, so what gives?

    Good thing I got Opera mini, however I can't download stuff with opera.

    Any great ideas floating around?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~That's a weird one! You might try dumping the browser cache and cookies, then trying again. Which site is it? If you don't mind my asking.

    Unfortunatelly all BB traffic goes through RIM's servers, which are located in Canada.
    Try doing a reverse DNS lookup (that is, convert the numbers to letters) of your IP address while on a BIS, and you'll get a canadian domain.

    It thinks you are Canadian! You should feel honored!! . Jk

    I am Canadian and cannot remember ever being blocked from a site. Try empting your cache and resending your service books

    Exactly, as long as you have a Canadian IP address, which you do when using your BB, you are from the point of view of web servers, Canadian.
    There are some US government sites, for example, that will not let you access without a US IP, so they can't be accessed with a Blackberry.

    Is that bad, or good?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ yamiR6 wins the prize of the day. Guess I'll just have to keep using opera mini to update to the latest linux os remotely.
