    Cequint, the makers of City ID, are awful and should feel awful for making such a piece of crap software and polluting our Droids with them.

    Please express your distaste for their forced-upon product by sending them a nasty gram. Make them, verizon, and htc regret having put City Id on our phones.

    email them at:

    info@cequint.com

    they are bad and should feel bad for being so bad.

    So far, their software is preventing me from making outgoing calls through google voice.

    It is still nagging me after every phone call!!!!!!

    And it opens up everytime I turn on my phone.

    i sent them an email, telling them to come to this site.

    I also told them that they have created an app that is causing a huge amount of hate for their company.

    I'm not having any gvoice issues and my phone's not rooted yet. I still have CityId. If you really want to kill CityID before root, just use ATK on it. Works for me.

    City ID was on my old flip phone, it's a verizon thing, and it's such a bullsh*t app. I can't believe they have the audacity to charge a monthly fee for such a minimal service. Since the free trial ran out it hasn't bugged me much, I just hate how it can't be deleted. Thats probably the biggest gripe I have with Verizon. They try and strong arm the hell out of you with your device to make it verizon. I plan on rooting my phone soon and the first thing I do is delete this from my phone.

    atk doesn't uninstall it, you cannot uninstall the pre-installed prgrams. at least until the phone is rooted.

    I do not use the google voice stuff, but I have only been hassled twice b city id. Once telling me about it and if id like to purchase, the next telling me the trial was over and that I could add it at any time. That is all I know so far.

    Sure, City ID is annoying as hell, but, like many other apps on your phone, it's an inactive (cached) app using 0 CPU. It's actually MORE of a drain on your battery to have ATK kill it than to just leave it alone (but don't get me started on my thoughts as to why you DON'T need a task killer).

    My proof? SystemPanel, free in the market. Highly recommended.

    cityid messed up my GV calls as well. It was annoying for about an hour. I am not going to root just to remove it.

    System Panel is a task killer, along with many other things. It's also no longer entirely free, the task killer portion is, but if you liked the other features you have to upgrade to the pro version.

    SystemPanel should NOT be used as JUST a task killer, although there are surely are people who choose to use it as such. It is an app that monitors what apps are using the most CPU, which apps are inactive, and it also lets you know which of your internal system processes are running. You can use SystemPanel to track which of your apps are historically using up the most CPU and it can even tell you the temperature of your battery. It CAN be used to put an "end task" to apps, but if you're using this app solely as a task killer, then you might as well just download ATK and have that useless thing sit there and "ping" your CPU all day looking for apps to needlessly kill, thus draining your battery. Knock yourself out - it's your phone.

    Didn't work... Cache was already cleared.

    But I dont understand what the big deal is. After the 2 week trial and it asks you. you say no.

    It never comes up again. It is just sitting there doing nothing. Why are people getting so mad that they can't delete it?

    It's not like it asks you everytime you get a call. Nothing is perfect.

    I don't mind having to push "no" after the two week trial but I don't like it taking up space in the apps list.

    I don't really see why people complain about it. Sure, the charge is unnecessary, but I still have the service and haven't paid for it. It just keeps renewing the trial. Still works just as well. I like knowing where my caller is from.

    Am I missing something? I just looked at mine, and it says I have 15 days left on my free trial, and I got this phone when it released.
