I would like to highlight nicknames in the contact list using a bigger font and first/last name under that, in smaller font (practically opposite as implemented by default)

Is it possible?

I am running Android 2.2 (CM6.0.1)

Not with the stock Contacts app. – Al E. Sep 24 '10 at 15:55
Could you suggest me a different way to reach the result? Another rom, or a market app? – Drake Sep 25 '10 at 11:06
There are quite a few Contact List replacement apps in the market, you won't need to root or replace your ROM since the default Contact apps is just another regular Android application. I haven't actually used them, so I can't recommend any good ones, so you will have to play with them and see which ones you'll like. – Lie Ryan Oct 17 '10 at 9:55

I've tried Go Contacts and Go Dialer and it seems really handy with useful features and beautiful look!

P.S I wanted to post a comment but I don't have adequate permission for "comment everywhere" right now!
