    Anybody else receive their 15 day CityID trial expiration? I just got mine right now and I hit No when it asked if I wanted to keep it for $1.99/month.

    The funny thing is that ever since I got my phone, I haven't been bothered with reminders or anything from City ID. I saw it once when I got the phone and haven't seen it again until now. I've read that some people were constantly getting bothered with reminders about the 15 day trial.

    I tried uninstalling but it's greyed out. You can't do anything with it. Seems pretty shady.

    Nossuh, there's currently no way to remove it. There's no option to uninstall.

    I find this annoying as well. I also wish there was a free service as $24/yr is NOT worth it. It's nice having it but not necessary.

    And to not be able to remove it annoys the shit out of me.

    I can't get rid of Backup Assistant either.

    In an effort to find a free replacement for this program, I found Voice Caller ID. That's pretty cool!

    Voice Caller ID - Android app on AppBrain

    It reads off the name of the person calling. It has good settings and works flawlessly - except spelling out 'p-r-i-v-a-t-e" - but that's OK.

    Yes but guess what, I personally like the feature but don't want to pay, just force quit the program from applications, clear the cache and reload it and BLAMMO, reset :) 15 more days.

    I actually like the City ID... although it gets some mixed up. For the most part, it does a good job.

    Settings > Applications > Installed Apps

    Find City ID, select it, Force Stop at the bottom, then clear data at the top. Just tried it and it worked. Not sure how I feel about it, but it does work.

    I just tried it and it worked for me. I ran the app and checked sub status before (expired) and then after (15 more days).

    I get that they have to sell spots to app makers and load bloatware on electronic devices. But it should be taken in to account that if a user doesn't want it, if it can't be uninstalled, it should at least be able to be hidden and just sit quietly back in the corner like the red-headed step child we treat it to be!

    It's not that I don't like what it does, it comes in somewhat handy for figuring who's calling you, especially when you don't know the number, it's just that $1.99/month for something like that seems like too much. I think I'd be ok with it if maybe it was $0.50 or something. I hardly make/receive phone calls as it is anyway, most of my usage is data and txt messages (thankfully I have $2.99 unlimited txt messaging to anyone :D). Since I got my phone on April 27th, I only have about 50 logged calls on my phone, not including a few missed calls.

    I loved that feature on my old Voyager. I always knew who was calling without having to look at my phone!!! :)

    Yeah, after 15 days, and you hitting "no", it'll stop bothering you.

    You can't get it anymore, this was something that was offered sometime back in 2001. I refuse to change my plan because of it. The only thing I had to add back in 2004 was unlimited data because that's when I got my first PDA phone.
