    Hi,
    I've got an HTC Hero cell phone, I'm in the UK but when I use Google search bar on my phones "desktop" I get directed to the Orange France web site to sign in as a cell phone customer. I'm a frequent visitor to France and suspect that I changed something in Google a couple of years ago but can't remember what. I would call my cell phone providor only I've noticed French results coming up in my search results occasionally when Googling on one of my PC's at home. I checked my search settings in Google and they are logged as UK and English. Any help much appreciated

    Thanks for the response bluenova, I've only been in the UK thus far with my phone. The search bar worked fine for a week or so then I started getting these re-directs to the Mobile France web site.
