    Does anybody know about a tweak that allows the nickname to be shown instead of the full name when receiving and making calls?
    So far I think the nickname field is so useless... I don't even know if Siri will parse it, if said.

    I saw nickname on Cydia but I think it's paid and I dont know if it works fine or not.

    Any experiences?

    Thanks for your time fellas.

    You can do one thing: Move the nickname to the name field and move the name to the nickname field.

    Siri will understand if you call out the nickname (regardless if the nickname is in the nickname field or not). If for example your friend's name is John and his nickname is "Fox", you can say "Call Fox" and Siri will pick this up, understand you are calling your friend John and promptly dial or give you the multiple numbers for John.

    Nickname from Cydia should work. It shouldn't be paid in my opinion though.
