Default T-Mobile vs. Verizon: Strange difference?

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying out Blackberries from T-Mobile and Verizon, and noticed something strange I was hoping somebody could explain.

When I enter www.google.com on the T-Mobile BB, I go to the standard Google website as expected.

Strangely, when I go to the same url on the Verizon BB (7250) it goes to Google Canada!

Can anyone explain why this is happening, or how I can fix it?

Strange indeed...

I use a nextel BB 7520 and it goes to google canada as well. The reqwireless third party browser did the same on my nextel. Maybe google canada has some mobility features that the standard site doesnt? Anyone have a good explanation for this?

TYPE IN WWW.GOOGLE.COM/NCR (NCR Stands for No Country Redirector)

They automatically redirect you to the Canadian site perhaps because the blackberry is a Canadian Masterpiece? All I know is when you type in www.google.com/ncr you are ok, and there is no problem. A small annoyance, but definately standable. Not that bad actually.
