    I hadn't heard of this being a feature (quite a small one), but I thought it was really cool when it happened.

    I have my parents in my address book as separate entries. Yesterday, my mom called, and what appeared? It recognized two names in my address book with the same number and displayed both of them: "Mom or Dad."

    A minor convenience, but I thought it was very cool.

    Edit: I'd forgotten about another bit of info: it also recognized that both contacts had the same last name and displayed "John or Jane Doe" (names obviously changed to protect the innocent).

    Yes, that sounds pretty cool.

    Typically for Apple to pay attention to the small details, that just makes the big difference:rolleyes:

    Can't wait till it gets to Europe:(

    My wife called from home, so it said Jane Coktoasten or 3 others. My kids and I all have our home phone listed.

    That's awesome! I wonder how many more undocumented things we'll find out in the coming weeks.
