What was that all about during story mode? I thought it was strange at first but then it became actually funny. Instead of calling each other by the name they just call each other by the first letter.

I think it's so nobody hears them using their real names, calling each other "Michael" and "Trevor" during a job would certainly narrow the search. It makes more sense than in Vice City's bank robbery, where everybody was calling each other by name in front of a bunch of hostages and the bank manager.

probably from how they refer to each other when they do heists, so they probably just stuck with it

The interesting thing is that during the prologue, if either M or T died, the mission failure screen would indeed cite them as mere 'M' or 'T'.

 

Otherwise, calling the protagonists through their initials has been done since San Andreas. Most frequently in The Ballad of Gay Tony. 'H', 'A', 'L', and even 'T'.

That makes sense. Much better than yelling "HEY, MICHAEL TOWNLEY OF 16 MICHAEL TOWNLEY ROAD, TAKE OUT THE SECURITY CAMERA BECAUSE IT'S STILL RECORDING WHILE I, TREVOR PHILLIPS, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER 37295302818592721840271949 MAKES OFF WITH THE LOOT."

It makes sense that they are saying that during heists, but off heists they still are saying that.

Maybe it's a habit then? People call me T sometimes, when we aren't knocking off a bank.

This is actually explained when Michael is in charge of heist planning and says to new crew members to use initials only during a job, just in case people didn't figure it out during the prologue. The prologue plays coy by not revealing names even to the player because Michael and Trevor aren't formally introduced till after Franklin's opening act.

 

Michael calls Trevor T as a habit and a nickname and as a means of asserting dominance, to try to keep Trevor thinking of their partnership and keep his distrustfulness and urge to take some kind of revenge against Michael in check.

Didn't they said it was because of the heists in one of their conversations?
IIRC Michael calls Trevor T in the beginning and Trevor says something like he should call him like that anymore cus they don't do anymore heists or whatever.

 

But the nicknames come from the heists and they just started to say it also when they weren't 'at work'.
