Lol, and your character rides an invisible bike and says *Ding! Ding!* lol.gif
That's it, we just solved the biggest secret of R* - Niko Bellic is just a cover-up for Crazy Frog. Yeah, right tounge2.gif

I'm wondering how are they going to treat the pics taken by the phone cam. I hope that for once we will be able to make decent screens with it and upload them to the comp.

Expanding on that Niko should seriously say Russian reversals on many occasions, like:

"In Soviet Russia, cars steal YOU!!!!"

or

"In Soviet Russia, guns fire YOU!!!!"

or

"In Soviet Russia, cops bribe YOU!!!"

or even better

"In Soviet Russia, Waldo finds YOU!!!"

yeah.... colgate.gif

Phonebook:

Since there are three contacts under this option (Dock, City, Cab), it's obvious this "phonebook" will play a major roll in the GTA IV storyline. We shall unlock numerous "contacts" throughout the story. And to initiate certain missions we simply call and meet at a certain location. After we finish a series of missions, say the "Cab" contact, maybe we can call Roman and utilize him in some way. Maybe you can meet up with Roman and he'll do the tag-along $h!t, just like the gang members in GTA SA. Or maybe Roman will also have some kind of activity, like taxi missions, or another mini-game like playing pool, stealing rival cabs, racing, beating up bums (<doubt it)... Anyway this would enable the "hanging out," thing Houser was talking about.

But the phonebook, we might expect, will be useful in other areas as well. Obviously we will be able to call girls, or girlfriends, in GTA IV. So to enable a date we call some girl, and start the activity. Personally I hope this activity wont require stupid crap like in GTA SA. Also we might be able to call the police, a cab, or ambulance.

Hopefully we can us this feature to meet random people, or pedestrians, and form some kind of bond with random individuals as we choose. If the girlfriend thing worked along these lines we would be able to "pursue" any pedestrian and form some kind of relationship. And this would make the annoying relationship feature, totally optional. This would also make good use of the homie feature, and a possible way to "recruit" desired individuals into your organization.

Also this could entitle new options like corrupt lawyers, bankers, politicians, assassins, ect... So to ride yourself of "heat" we would simply meet our lawyer. To deposit dirty money we call our banker. The possibilities will probably be limited, but who knows?


Messages:

Maybe text messages, maybe voice messages if you don't feel like answering your phone. Also maybe there will be messages after turning the game on, to remind you what's happening.


Organizer:

When I think organizer I see a calender. And a calender would be an obvious part of an organizer. If the calender is a weekly thing I could kinda understand that... Maybe it shifts daily and only displays 7 days. More likely would be a monthly calender, and therefor a seasonal year would pass. How realistic would January be without cold @ss weather, leafless trees, and snow.... Anyway if there is a calender it would track all meetings, missions, dates, ect....

The only other reason for an organizer would be simple, organize... But what? Maybe you keep tabs on your business, your employees, gang members, assets, map... Strategic, territorial, planning.


Camera:

Take pics or videos.... That's going to be fun.

I think it would be cool to call 911 if you're hurt and are about to die and are too lazy to drive to the hospital tounge.gif , like when you get in the Ambulance, and you appear outside of the Hospital but don't loose as much money and keep your weapons. And calling the cops if you're getting mugged or ganged up on, hehe, it's cheap but worth it! Maybe other people will call the cops on you if you're shooting up the place! inlove.gif

a mobile phone in GTA:IV would be great. they should have had a taxi service in SA for when you car got trashed in the middle of the desert. Its great in missions, easier than having to go meet people and drive for miles. Another feature is that if GTA:IV became an online mutiplayer, you could contact the other players through phone just like ordinary chat does in SA.

Having taxis pick you and leave you to a contact sounds bad, you pass the game much quickly, why dont you just drive instead of having to do that.

Well.. I see it as the camera on the phone can be used in many ways. Maybe like when you've just done a hit on someone and you have to take a picture of the dead body to confirm the job has been done to the guy you're working for. Straight new age mob sh*t right there, I tell you.

Lol. That was mainly a joke.... mainly.. cheer up!

Anyways, I like the idea of using a cellphone in the game. Seems it has way more oppurtunities than just calling people....

More Speculations About Features:

GPS:

The map will be integrated into you cell. Instead of pausing the game to access to the map, you'll just pull out your cell, go to GPS and use it as a map.

MP3 PLAYER:

Didn't you wish that you had a walkman or something like it in San Andreas, so you could listen to radio on foot, on bikes, jetpacks etc. Well, what if you'll have that option through your cell phone. So in car you'll use the in-car radio, on foot - your cellphone.


CAMERA:

In addition to taking pictures, maybe you'll also be able to capture videos? How about using the cellphone for video calling?



THE CELLPHONE TYPE:

Flip phone? Bar phone? No... a slider! I'd be great if R* put the Nokia N95, which in real life has a GPS, mp3 player, 5 mp camera, dvd quality video, video calling, and basically its a smart phone. Plus R* could make a few bucks on it, since it's advertising the N95.

since this game takes place in 2007 i would like to see the cellphone......
1. Take pictures that save to Hard drive Or Memory Card like the camera in San Andreas did.
2. Act as the map/menu in this game (example: scraface: the world is yours)
3. Maybe once you get rich call for a cab to pick you up, or a vehicle you own.
4. last but not least Text messaging, IM, Myspace Mobile, Custom Ringtones,Games,TV,MP3, Etc.


#4 was a joke!
