Some common fixed point theorems for a pair of nonself-mappings in complete metrically convex metric spaces are proved by altering distances between the points, which generalize earlier results due to M. D. Khan and Bharadwaj (2001), M. S. Khan et al. (2000), Bianchini (1972), Chatterjea 1972, and others. Some related results are also discussed besides furnishing an illustrative example.
