Too many friends named Bubba!

I don’t know about all the rest of ya’ll….but here in the south, I got too many friends named Bubba and Cleetus in my iPhone!  And with iOS7, I keep gettin’ ’em all mixed up and stuff when I’m textin’ away ‘cuz only their first name shows up in my text window! (It ain’t cool when I text Bubba Overalls about borrowing a shotgun when I meant to text Bubba Peashooter to get rid of that pesky coon in my backyard!) Don’t you pretend like you don’t know what I’m talkin’ about!

Maybe all you teenagers with a bazillion contacts in your iPhones or all you fancy business folks are running into that same problem too.

I need their last names too!

Fortunately, there is a way:

1) Go to Settings –> Mail, Contacts, Calendars –> Short Name

2) Turn Short Name to “OFF”


Never mix-up your Bubba’s again!
