    On most other phones I've had, when you're in the dialer app and you start pressing the numbers (or corresponding letters), the phone starts bringing up matches in your contact list of people who match either the numbers you've pressed or the letters of their name. Is there an app to do this in cydia?

    I love having this feature too. It's standard on older phones so why not an iPhone? Well it beats me. But I used to use the Kuai Dialer which has both of these features you are looking for plus it had its own blacklist feature built in. I believe the repo is http://kuaidial.googlecode.com/svn/deb/ but I have no clue if it's been updated for 6.1. If you are interested in trying it, the last time I used it many of the settings were in Japanese (or maybe it was Korean? I can't remember). Either way, I remember finding a translation of everything so that you could use the dialer and all of its features. Let me know if you wan me to find that translation. I can probably o that. But this dialer does exactly what you are looking for.

    Edit: I just did a quick search here and found this thread. I wrote a couple paragraphs in this thread about the tweak. I'm sure there are more because I know it's been mentioned several times on this forum.

    There is actually several apps in the App Store that does this as well. One is Cobook and another is Magic Keypad. I like Cobook better as it's also a great contact manager too. Hope this helps.

    Thanks, that's a big help. Cobook does exactly what I want, but I'm looking for something that incorporates into the stock dialer. I'll use your suggestion if there isn't any other option.
