Nickname


Update: Hooray as of iOS 7 this feature is now built in and no tweak is required! Go to Settings->Mail,Contacts,Calendars->Short Name->Prefer Nicknames

Since 2008, iPhone users have been seeking a way to display their friend's nickname as Caller ID. Finally this is now possible through jailbreak and this tweak. You can keep your contacts list organised with everyone's full names whilst enjoy seeing their nicknames when they contact you.

Replaces contact name with nickname in the following places:
- Incoming & outgoing call.
- Phone favourites.
- New message alert.
- Messages thread list.
- In a message thread.

If no nickname exists it defaults to the normal behavior of showing full name.
