    Default Location on incoming calls

    Hi, I just got a galaxy s5 about a week ago, and I when I receive an incoming call, it displays the caller's location on the caller id..I don't know why, but this annoys me and and i cannot figure out how to remove it (just the location, not their name and number). I'm pretty sure it can be done because I have removed it from my previous galaxy phones as well. Please help, i know it's not a big deal but for some reason it annoys me! Thanks in advance.

    Go into the phone app, and go into settings. If there is any option to remove that from caller ID, it will be in there.

    On my S5 from AT&T there is a bloat ware app called Caller ID ..... it's an app that may be causing the issue if you turned it on by mistake. The idea if location is bogus as it just translates the area code and number based on tables not actual location.
