    Default Does your Maxx show city/state under number when receiving calls?

    Mine doesn't. Which I find weird. Are there settings I missed or something? I'd like to have that back.

    City ID app trial period. Gimicky. Not worth the expense.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    I didn't know it was phone specific. I thought it was an standard in all 4.2 software. My phone before this was a Epic 4G Touch. Which was rooted and had 4.2 roms on it.

    I haven't used that at all. Especially after seeing you have to pay monthly to use it.

    That would be the only thing I can think of.

    Download the free Current Caller ID application by White Pages from the Play Store. It can tell you local news, weather, city and caller name even if the contact isn't in your address book. It pops up at the top and can be enabled for both outgoing and incoming calls or only incoming.

    I downloaded it and it gives weather and news from each location. I turned those features off.

    I'm pretty sure City, ST is displayed on my phone under the phone number when I receive a call from someone not in my contacts. No caller ID apps, just stock. I'll try to snap a screenshot the next time.

    I pay $2.99/month to Verizon for the Caller ID Name service. Basically, this gives you the same information that you would get on landline caller id, using the caller name info in the call as sent by the phone network. I would expect that non-service provider caller id apps would attempt to do a reverse lookup of the number, which may or may not be what is provided by the phone network. Whatever. Historically, on cell phones you would only get the caller name if the number was in the phone book on your phone, but that has changed with smart phones.
