Thanks to our community member Ann154 for providing with correct steps on disabling the application. Unfortunately, the application can not be unistalled, only disabled.

I agree completely. Stop shoving these apps in our face! Now I get a "Caller Name ID" notification in addition to the regular call notification. Tell me again, why do I need this? Perhaps I need three or four notifications per call. Verizon is the worst service provider when it comes to this sort of behavior. Completely abusive!
Yes you can remove the app
1. Make sure mobile data is on and open the CALLER NAME ID app.
2. Go to ACCOUNT TOOLS and check your STATUS. If it says to SUBSCRIBE then that means that you have not been signed up for the service yet and simply hit the back
key and hit REMOVE APPLICATION.
3. If you see under your status that you have X amount of days left in your trial period then that means you have been signed up for the trial period. In this case just
unsubscribe and confirm, then hit the back key and hit REMOVE APPLICATION.
If you disabled the app then just enable it and remove.
Settings > Apps > scroll over to the "All" tab > scroll down to the Caller ID app. Select it and touch the disable button. You'll might have to uninstall the updates before the disable option will be available.
This is not true as it still takes up 2M on my phone. How do you uninstall it?
