    Hi guys, I want to set nickname as display name, so when I call someone or someone calls me, his/her nickname should be displayed instead of full name on screen. That's way i can read Jeni instead of Jeniffer Louis. Same this applys to text, WhatsApp everywhere.

    In the Contacts change the first name to nick name it should work.

    The way contacts are displayed are by their first name or surname (should you choose) even if they have a nickname saved.

    However if either the first name or surname is blank, the nickname is displayed.

    This is one the few quirks about WP that I don't like as there is no global option or individual option to force the nickname to be displayed.
