Default Help- BBC site doen't think my Bold is British!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I am new to BB and have had a Bold from O2 UK for a few days now. Whilst I was playing with the different features I discovered that when I try to download video content from the BBC mobile web the site does not recognise my handsat as being UK based and therefore will not allow me to download video trailers as these are limited to UK users. I have tried every combination of browser setting and just cannot get it to work either over GPRS (I live and work in the sticks!) or the wifi connection at home or in the office.

Has anyone got any bright ideas please?? Needless to say I have tried O2 support several times and they are all out of bright ideas!

welcome to the world of internet. I had the same issue.
your Bold IP address is not registered as a local IP to the UK.
you need to change the Bold IP address to a registered UK IP address. if your ISP does not have a local IP address to the UK. then there is NOTHING you can do.

Thanks for your reply. I thought that might be the problem having trawled this and many other forums. Obviously it's not a crucial problem just annoying!
