    If I recall correctly. If you send an e-mail via your BlackBerry there would be a signature below in the reply or sent e-mail saying for example. "Sent by my BlackBerry smart phone by ****." (***= the carrier you are using.) I think that can be disabled.

    If you have a wireless router at home, you can find the mac address. Now I don't know if it works like an ip address or if its unique to the device.

    It might be on the manufactures label of the router. Granted... I am taking a guess. As for your "court issue." There has been plenty of times I have been at my laptop, my BlackBerry tells me I have an e-mail. And instead of going to my hotmail on my laptop to check & reply, I use my BlackBerry. I am sure I am not the only person that has done this.

    I'm a bit confused as to what exactly you're doing. If you're asking if it's possible to prove whether you sent an email from your phone or from another computer then the answer is yes. While the external IP address you have now is probably different than it was a few days ago, IP addresses are owned by the agencies who give them out - so your wireless carrier has the address associated with your Blackberry and whoever provides the Internet access for the PC (Comcast, for example) would have the IP address associated with that connection. Note that the MAC address is different, first it's not commonly stored in most logs outside the adjacent routers and it can also only tell you what device you connected to the Internet with but not where it was connected.

    If it's a court case, you're in the US, and you have a competent lawyer tell them the truth and it's up to them to prove your version false (assuming you're the defendant) - but check with this competent lawyer first and make sure he knows that they can tell from the headers where it was sent. If your story isn't exactly true it's probably better to come clean since the email headers will probably give you away if the prosecution has a slight clue about what they're doing. And if the case is important enough Google will give them the information they need to prove what happened and your carrier could even tell you where your cell phone was.

    Let us know how you fare getting the information yourself. It's available to the prosecution if they have a court order, but I'm interested to know if you can request that information yourself without one (as the owner of the account in question you should be able to from a moral standpoint). Obviously while the technical information in my posts should be correct, any legal advice is best left to your lawyer!

    I was afraid of that. As long as your phone was on and had a signal they should be able to. Now the accuracy may be another issue - if you were close to the building where the computer was it's still a matter of debate as to where you really where.

    Assuming you're the defendant I'd also confirm with your lawyer but it should be the job of the prosecution to say that you weren't where you say you are - and the way they'd do that is getting a subpoena for the information you just wanted to get anyway.

    Technology can fail, (for example, sprint family locator is NOT very accurate) and if you have 4 eye witnesses you should be fine. IP's dont nail you down to an address necessarily, just a provider who 'should' be able to tell who's cable modem it came from. But honestly, I can drag my cable modem to anywhere in my providers service area and it'll come online, so it's not a great burden of proof.

    Good Luck, I think the electronic information you're looking for can be had, but since you're still free to type on a pc, I'm guessing it isn't a high felony so it probably isn't worth pursuing.
