Displaying the city and state is usually worthless - as that's just where it was originally registered. Who's gonna pay for that. As Wikipedia says, you can force stop it, but what I start to do that, the phone says, "Forcing an application to stop can cause problems". Can it get any more vague than that? What problems? Is android just shooting in the dark here?

It will not go away on my phone. I have an LG flip phone. When I open the app center, it goes to the website to download more junk, not manage what is already on the phone. I do not have a data or text plan, nor do I want them. My phone is for voice calls ONLY.
How do I get rid of this obnoxious "service" on my phone??

Tried calling 611 - the rep could not help remove city id from our LG xpression. They transferred us to an (att? specific) LG help desk who should know more about our phone. He put us on hold for about 10 mins before we were transferred back to the incomming call tree, not talking to anyone but a machine as if we had just started our call. We hung up at that point.
Very frustrating - very useless. I just hope we were not charged time for that call.
We are trying to get comfortable with the features of a new phone. There is enough stuff to learn about phone operation without having to be on alert for apps trying to sign us up for crap we don't need or want.

This wasn't any help. I talked to both customer service and tech support, the last whom gave me a credit to compensate for accessing the web (required on my phone to manage apps) to remove the app. It was useless. I couldn't find any reference to City ID, much less how to remove it.
So why was this app installed on my new LG A340 in the first place? Why doesn't it pop up on my wife's identical phone purchased at the same time? Why does it start inconsistantly and randomly when I hang up from a call? And HOW DO I GET RID OF IT!!!??
AT&T and/or LG should never pre-install an app on new non-smart phones, even as a free trial, and especially something so aggravating and impossible to eliminate.
