    I am not sure if this is a 3.0 feature or if it has been around for ages in the USA but I had a missed call from an american number and it told me what state/county the call was from.

    Is this for US calls only? (I am in the UK) or do other countries also have this feature?

    I had assumed it did it based on the area code. It might be US-only but I would think Apple could easily implement it for other countries too, depending on the phone numbering system (or something else).

    Not quite just the US, I called Toronto and it said "Ontario, Canada"

    I'd imagine it's just for countries that fall under the North American Numbering Plan and have a country code of +1, which is basically the US, Canada and some Caribbean countries

    Thanks. Its a pretty cool feature.

    I guess the database for this is not cached as it only shows up in my recent call list, not when recieving the call?

    Yep, very cool feature. It works in Canada flawlessly.
