    Default Is there an app for the iphone that works like City ID?

    I am looking for an app that when I get a phone call the city and state also appears on the screen. I know that when i go into the call log it show this, I just want it to show on the incoming call screen too.

    any ideas?

    Voice stuff is all handled by the Phone app. Seems like it would be an easy function to build in, however I think this area is off-limits to 3rd party enhancement. And since Verizon sells it as a service, they certainly wouldn't be a fan of adding the function to a smartphone.

    Um...seriously? Take a look at the number in your recent category and it should be listed under the physical number as to where it came from. As long as there is an area code with the number, it will automatically identify where the call is from. That is, if that was the only feature of CityID you were looking for. Hope this helps.

    It doesn't help. The only place it shows up is in the call history, aka recents. I want it to come through with the phone number.

    Nevermind, saw user needs it to show on call answer screen. Also, this feature is going to be in iOS 5 but only for calls NOT in your contact list.

    On a stock iPhone you will not find one. Third party apps cannot interface with core apps in this manner. If you were jailbroken it is likely possible. Or it seems you may just have to wait for iOS 5.
