Default facebook active sessions location

Please Login to Remove!

I need to find out where my facebook profile has been accessed from, i have looked under account settings>security>active sessions to view the list of locations my profile has been logged in from, there is one location i dont recognise.
So I need to know if this was my blackberry. I no longer have the blackberry to access fb. So i just need to know what location is shown under active sessions when you log into facebook on a blackberry.
Anyone with a BB will be able to help me, if you could just use FB on your BB and tell me what location is shown, particularly if you are in the UK.
I just need the town/state, do not post the IP

More likely than not, no one here is going to be able to give you an accurate reply. When I log in from my Android device on Sprint, it shows me logging in from San Jose, CA, when I live on the east coast of the US. What you're seeing is most likely you logging in from your BlackBerry.

My device type shows unknown when I log in via my Droid device.

Were you logging in via the BB browser or the FB app?

Do you know if it is possible for it to show up as "firefox on winxp"?

I just tested with my BB.

When I logged in with the browser, I see:
Location: Waterloo, ON, CA (Approximate)
Device Type:
Unknown

When I logged in via the app, it didn't show any information, so I couldn't tell that I logged in with the app.

Smile Re: facebook active sessions location

I got that too when I was using my BB phone, it shows a different location. All my friends were wondering how did I get in that place so soon.

Mine says the same thing! And I live near Toledo! My other problem is that my Facebook using my bb browsers, is posting the wrong timestamps...12 hours later than they should be. I don't know how to fix that! Any ideas anyone?

Do the follow:-

1:- Face book location service should remain enabled.
2:- Change ur secret answer and question.
3:- Save the model of ur device. This way, you would be able to track which device was used to access your account.
