Well... I'll bet that you are not adding the
and your default paper is letterpaper rather than a4paper. The use of
the a4paper option to the document class will tell LaTeX how to adjust
textwidth, etc., but will not tell pdflatex that the actual paper size
is a4paper. The geometry package adds the proper commands to pdflatex
so the paper size is adjusted properly.
