    Its an IP thing...sort of a long story...but nothing is wrong, that's the way its supposed to be.

    Long story short, I'm pretty sure the servers that process your data for your phone service are located there. Websites trying to access your IP address also see that external value, and that location, so it's also a level of anonymity.

    You're lucky, Virgin Mobile only has one data processing center in the nation and it's in Kansas.
