    I've had my awesome iphone 4S for two weeks now But I'm still having difficulty in getting Siri to use my nickname. I have followed the instructions posted on the blog about the process of having Siri call me something, but when I say "Sir , call me Mr. Clooney" , All I get is 'I can't make changes to your contacts. You can do this through the contacts app. though" Any suggestions, out there?

    You have to have it set up as a nickname in your contact info.

    I sync my contacts to gmail, but for MY contact, I moved that to iCloud, this makes Siri work much nicer with nicknames and relationships.

    Siri calls me by my real name for the time being, but eventually, I'll give myself a nickname.

    Siri calls my ex Asshat, which is a term of endearment. I do like him and we get along fine, but it's an in joke between us.

    FYI, you can have a contact in gmail AND iCloud at the same time. The iPhone automatically groups the two contacts and you'll have the advantage of having yourself still in gmail. Btw, this also allows for full res pics for incoming calls. I have about 15 duplicate contacts in iCloud for this purpose. When you edit the contact (in all contacts view) it modifies both iCloud and gmail contacts. BUT, when creating a new contact it does not create them in both systems but there are workarounds for that.

    In [Settings>Mail, Contacts...>My Info] select your contact entry.

    If you really want to create some chaos, you can tell Siri to call you "Siri". Let the weird fun commence.
