Remove City ID from Verizon LG Cosmos
Remove City ID from Verizon Phone - LG Cosmos
The other day I got the software for my VN250 LG Cosmos updated. It works fine but there is one new 'feature' I do not appreciate. I started getting an annoying pop-up for CityID. CityID tells you where the person is calling from. While I can see the value in such a service I have 2 problems with it; 1) I don't want to pay for it and 2) I did not download it onto my phone.
What this means to me is the annoying age of pop-ups has migrated over to the cell phone world. The big problem I had was there was no way to turn it off. The pop up offered me 2 choices, enroll in the 30 day free trial or remind me again later. I did not want either.
So the hunt began for the 3rd option, deleting the #$%@& pop up. Here's what I found;
For the VN250 LG Cosmos, you navigate to the Media Center. From there select "Browse & Download". Navigate to the City ID item and select options and remove. It gives you the usual 'are you sure' kind of tricks but if you select yes, it will remove the application from your phone and prevent the annoying pop up from ever occurring again.
Enjoy your new found freedom from pop ups on your LG Cosmos.
