As of now we can insert a nickname in our contact entries, but there's no actual use for them. I'd like to be able to be use nicknames while searching through my contacts list.

It can be generalized to many fields, like address, company etc.

Searching for nickname works for me with some contacts, but not for others. Weird! Good idea dez!

Thanks, I knew that. But after the update it doesn't work for me anymore (and also before the update it didn't work for all the contacts, just for some; I already reported this to the developer).
