    I couldn't help but notice that caller state information isn't included in our Stock ROMs. This feature was pretty awesome on my touch pro2 and various other phones. Is there any program from the market or a ripped version of City ID from any of verizon's Android phones that will work with ours?

    How about just handling area codes?

    If I dial a local contact, no area code, it shows up in my call list by number - not by contact name.

    Pet peeve.

    Thanks. I saw that yesterday and am not sure after reading the comments.

    Noticed this too, very irritating.

    Damn, that does suck.

    Anybody up for this programming task? :) Nothing I saw on the app market appealed to me. It just needs to be simple, unobtrusive, and integrated well with the dialer. Outgoing, Incoming, Current, and Missed Calls are a must.

    Just find the city caller ID APK and install it. It still works, despite the author's legal challenges...

    Nice find, but doesn't seem to work in the call history. It only shows the city when the phone is actually ringing. Unless I'm doing something wrong, which isn't out of the realm of possibility.

    Doesn't show any information on an outgoing call either. But hey, i'll take what I can get I suppose. None of my other phones showed any city information when in call history either so i'm pretty much exactly where I was with my touch pro2, with the exception of outgoing city information. Maybe someone will improve upon this idea. I find it kind of odd that more people aren't interested in this, considering it is available on almost all flip phones on Sprint.

    Yeah, I always took that feature for granted on my iPhone. It actually shows in the call history as well. I'm sure someone will come up with something though.
