I use the TunnelBear VPN software for my Android 4.4 phone and Android 5.0 tablet.
I first used it when the Beeb showed that Edward Snowden interview that could not be viewed outside the UK. It worked just fine. Interesting interview; I have not yet seen it on American television.
You can find it at http://www.tunnelbear.com
They allow you to use up to 500 MB per month for free to try it out.
It supports many countries around the world. Speed is fast enough to watch Netflx with it.
I use http://www.grc.com Shields-Up to verify the IP address it uses in various places around the world. I'm sure https://panopticlick.eff.org would work for this, too.
Once you know your VPN address you can do a traceroute (or Visual Trace) to see where you "are".
The best part is that on an Android it encrypts and tunnels ALL traffic. So as my Androids grabs onto the open WiFi at church it is all encrypted just like at home. It looks to the world like I am in another time zone.
On a PC it operates in Chrome and Opera by way of browser extensions, but all other traffic goes native.
I like it so much I paid their fee for unlimited data and never have turned it off. Being in the USA I find it prudent to only use the US connection so I am not crossing foreign borders. It can be switched very quickly and easily if I needed it for some special task. Even then I would stay within the USAUK countries only. But so far I have not had any reason to utilize anything outside the USA.
Bottom line is that it provides full-time encryption and tunneling for my Androids, and my virtual IP never reveals my actual state as far as I can tell.
