Alltel enhanced caller ID

Phone carrier Alltel Wireless has launched a new feature that should help identify long-distance callers before picking up the phone. Called "City ID," it displays both the city and state of most numbers in North America, giving customers the ability to spot a relative calling from a business trip, or harassment from the same telemarketer. At the moment the option is only available on the LG AX275; it will, however, eventually come to every phone on the Alltel network. The service also costs $2 monthly, but there is currently a seven-day trial, and future phones will come with a 15-day trial.
