    I got a few calls today and the phone was ringing for several seconds while still on the homescreen until the ability to answer the call popped up. My only guess is that the fact that it had to look up the information for CityID was holding it up. I know you can't uninstall it, but can you at least disable it?

    Launcherpro has a hidden app feature that lets you hide the crappy apps.

    Hiding the app icon doesn't keep the app from running. That's like thinking that you can delete a shortcut and the program is uninstalled in Windows.

    I was hoping for the 2.2 update though.

    Does rooting block OTA updates? I'm guessing not...so do I just have to constantly say no to the OTA update?

    From what I've read before you can update to 2.2 the app's you takeout have to be replaced Before un-rooting.
    So root and remember to install the deletes before you un-root.
    I agree City ID is useless for most users.

    Well I might if I rooted I'd want to stay rooted but block the OTA until the 2.2 was also rooted.

    Personally I love City ID. I'd love to have real Caller ID, but until then at least I can figure out where someone is calling from (I get calls from all over the country) to narrow down whether they should be sent to voicemail. :)

    But, to the OP, I don't think City ID would have anything to do with a delay in showing the incoming call screen. I bet a reboot will make the problems all go away. :)
