So maybe it was because I was running an aftermarket ROM on my captivate, but the city/state of an incoming call would show up when the phone was ringing.

Today I got the first call from someone not in my contacts, it showed up with city & state info, but then when I hung up.. up came this city ID app, saying it was a 10 day trial.. wtf? how is something like this now a pay service?

I wouldn't think I would need an app for this. Anyone have a good replacement? or maybe it's part of some of the ROMs that are being worked on for vivid here (going to try rum raider once Im back from a business trip).

Bloatware, delete it. There are many free alternatives in the market.

It seems to. If I clear all data and flash a rom it seems to give me another trial.

Yes, I just got a call today and it asked about the 10 day trial. Happens every time I reflash this rom and clear data.

Yup. I've had the 10 day free trial for the month and a half I've had the phone.. Flash new build, get new trial. I never hit 10 days...
