Workaround is to change the number to +19995551212 in your Contacts, which stinks.
I don't understand this part,

If you want your number to show as "Dad", then why sacrifice inputting special characters like "(999)" for?

Workaround should simply be NOT to type the special characters in. I know we want it all but sometimes we can't have it all.
