    The problem that happens is tuat google thinks I am Spanish and therefor makes google.com display in Spanish. I tried changing and deleting the cache in the browser, tried changing the local settings, nothing wants to work? Right now I have set my homepage to the English version using the url codes, but that is only a temp fix. Istherea permanent fix?

    I had this happen to our entire network at my last Job because Google had our public IP registered with it's location in France. I'm not sure how they determine location for mobile phones, but typically is based off of your IP network.

    Well, I did two things, but I am not sure which one fixed the problem.

    I first deleted all of the saved settings through the Manage Applications menu for the Browser Application.

    Then, I reset the Location settings (turned everything off and on again) and was prompted for Google's consent again.

    I am thinking the later fixed it. Still weird though that it thought I was in that location for whatever reason.

    mbell, I don't know what you said.

    Mine was in French for about a week. I thought it was one of Google's tricksy "ha ha" things the first day. Then it became annoying. Went away on its own.

    On mine there was a link down at the bottom called "Google in English" which turned off their location service
