    In the call log, since you know the area code, it would be neat to also display the area code's location. Just a thought.

    For now, perhaps. But as people's phones become predominantly wireless, with most carriers having nationwide calling the idea of "area" codes starts to blur. For example: I was born, raised and graduated high school in Oregon where I currently live now. However I was in the military and spent part of my service time stationed in Tucson. I have a 520 area code with no intention of changing. I also have a 949 area code with GV.

    Fairly misleading for someone to see that I am calling from Tucson, when in fact I am in Oregon.
