Default Google on the Storm

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if anyone knew if there's a country setting somewhere in either the Storm or Google? I can't seem to find one. I live in the US but all my Google search results come up for Canada. It's pretty annoying. Everything is coming up .ca and in the metric system.

I am taking a wild stab at this one, but do you have a Canadian Storm? You can tell by removing the battery and looking there to see where it was manufactured.

According to some of the Verizon / RIM employees on here you can be in the U.S. and get Storms made in Mexico and Canada.

In the options settings there is a Language tab. You have the ability to choose some settings in there as well. However, if you do not have all the languages downloaded onto the device from the OS your options should be limited. I would check there first and see what kind of changes you can make. If need be, plug your device back into your DM and open the options to add/remove languages. It may give you some options.... Worst case scenario, wipe the device and download the OS again and perhaps it will "shock" the device back into acting normal (if it ever did).

My device is Canadian as well, however no issues like yours, nor have I ever heard of these issues. Oh, also, go in a re-send your service books (via BIS account).

Hope something works for you!

Just pulled my battery and my phone was made in Mexico.
