You have to make an account and not post anonymously in order to block your location.

However, I have an iPhone and have found that when I make a post while on AT&T's cellular internet connection my posts show as "United States."

If you don't post anything insulting or gossipy, you don't have to worry about "location."
Hiding your IP

I misunderstood.... Are you speaking of having your IP to your computer display an area where you are not at? If so be advised that even the best proxies can be traced by the pros, but there are many free and pay methods of spoofing a computer's ip that is good enough to fool many sites, but any good tech should be able to trace it if it is a serious matter like a major crime.
I believe the safest way of changing your computer's IP is advertised on some Bit Torrent (file trader sites) sites- As I recall http://btjunkie.org (or *.com) is a bit torrent site that has often ran advertisements for a company in Canada that charges $6.00 a month to use their proxy service which will fool most anybody. Canada has some of the world's strictest privacy laws, so it would really take a serious crime to get anybody to force the proxy server to give up any information. As far as I know routing thru a pay Canadian Proxy that deals in the business of protecting your ip address is the safest bet right now.
If you were not asking about your IP on your computer to be changed, then please disregard this.

You can't hide anything on the internet. You may think you are hiding it using a proxy server in Canada or some other country beyond US subponeas, but really you can't. If you are trying to post something on Topix and keep hicks like us from finding out a proxy server works fine (but the free ones are slow as molasses), and even work fine within reason if you are seeking to escape a civil suit for slander because you are never going to get a foreign proxy server host to give up anything for a civil suit. There are two ways someone can find you if they want you bad enough and have the resources 1) they have sufficient resources (money), or 2) they are law enforcement or government and have access to the appropriate resources. The first case is much more dangerous (to you) since their won't be a trace ... looking at recent events their probably won't be a record of the second either :) Sufficient money or governmental power can do just about anything.

Even if you are using a Proxy server that won't give up your IP (and most don't even record them), you still have an entry in YOUR ISP's database showing your jump to the out of country proxy server. With today's data mining tools and the availability and easy access (go look up CALEA) to ISP databases its no large jump to assume if the boys riding the black helicopters want you they will get you. "They" are recording everything folks. To make things worse the IP header also contains your computer's MAC address, which is unique to a device. You can bet the right folks can find out that y our computer was sold in WalMart in Morehead, KY - and probably associate a credit card with it. And don't think encryption is going to help much because the big boys will slice through that like a hot knife in butter. Big money buys big tools and big minds.

If you really wanted to remain anonymous, you would want to use a computer you acquired anonymously (cash, no cameras at point of sale), a public hotspot with no cameras, and an out of country proxy server. I doubt though that would save you from the right people. Not to worry, you'd never be prosecuted - you'd just disappear :)

Or, you could use the time-proven method I use - don't do nothing you care if the whole world knows about. I have to admit I do make a snarky post every now and then on Topix, but nothing that would get my young butt put in jail or killed.

Bottom line, if they want you it is very, very hard if not impossible to hide your identity on the internet. By using the internet you are just saying "come get me".
